This is a meticulously maintained Airstream Interstate 3500 Lounge EXT with 58,500 miles. We are the second owners and all regular maintenance has been performed. All current vehicle recalls have been serviced and it is in excellent operating condition. The vehicle drives like a van on the road and is no wider than a full sized SUV. It is very comfortable to drive for long stretches and great for road trips. It is possible to fit the vehicle into a regular parking space as long as you are back up to the curb and the rear end can overhang the curb by 3-4 feet. Otherwise pulling through 2 parking spots is the easiest way to park. The kitchen comes with a refrigerator, 2 burner cooktop, convection oven/microwave combo plus the kitchen sink. The bathroom has a toilet, shower, and small sink; and the back seats fold down to make a queen sized bed. There are 9 seatbelts (one for every seating position), and it comfortably sleeps 2. Please see the photo of the original spec sheet for details on what comes on this model. We have added a sound bar to the rear TV to make audio more clear while driving or with the A/C unit on. We have recently replaced the macerator pump as well as the exterior shower faucet and wiring for the 100W solar panel. All the appliances work properly. The vehicle comes with a cover made for this model that has never been used along with one set of dually leveling blocks and one set of single leveling blocks. Also included is a 30AMP power cable along with a 15AMP adapter for charging with a standard outlet, plus 2 fresh water hoses, an exterior shower hose, and cable TV wire. The macerator hose stays attached and reels into an external compartment for storage so this is much less messy than typical dump tank setups. The front end is covered in paint protection film from the factory. There are some visible dings on the front bumper and hood from impacts with road debris, as well as a dent in the rear bumper from a lawnmower (while the vehicle was stationary). There are a very few dings on the side, and those are very small and almost imperceptible. There is a very small crack in the front windshield, also nearly imperceptible from any distance. Please see the photos for details on the dings and dents. Four of the tires were replaced after we bought the vehicle. These are Michelin Defender LTX tires and have less than 20,000 miles. The two remaining rear tires have a similar amount of wear but I am unsure of mileage. These tires are Americus Commercial L/T.

Consider these tips in order to send or receive payment safely.
Know the vehicle’s market value
Be very suspicious of any vehicle priced significantly below market value. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Confirm contact information
Verify the seller’s physical address and phone number BEFORE SENDING PAYMENT. Zip codes, area codes and addresses should match up.
Use email wisely
Do not send personal or financial information (such as your social security number, credit card number or checking account number) to a seller via email. Email communications are not secure.
Do not use money transfer services, such as Western Union to pay for online purchases
Even Western Union recommends against using their service or similar services to pay for online purchases. Be cautious about any seller who will only accept a money transfer.
If using an escrow service for payment, make sure it is a reputable, valid escrow service
Some buyers, purchasing outside their local area, may consider using an escrow service. If so, make sure it is a legitimate service. Go directly to the website of the escrow service. Do NOT go to an escrow service through a link in the seller’s e-mail or use a service based on a referral from the seller. Check the web address to make sure you are at the valid website.
Get a detailed receipt
Ask the seller for a receipt that states whether the Airstream is being sold with a warranty or “as is.”
Get title to the vehicle
Make sure you know what’s required in your state to transfer title to the vehicle you’re buying.
Confirm contact information
Be wary of buyers willing to purchase your item sight-unseen, especially buyers located overseas. Always verify the buyer’s street address and valid phone number.
Verify that a certified check is genuine
Verify authenticity with the issuing bank prior to depositing a certified check. Make sure the account contains sufficient funds and the issuing bank guarantees payment on the check. Once deposited in your account, it may take a week or more for the check to clear. Acceptance by your bank does not guarantee the check is valid and funds are available. A cashier’s check can take 30 days or more to clear.
Secure payment first
Do not transfer the title until you have payment in hand at the agreed upon price (and you have verified that the payment is valid.
Beware of overpayment or other complicated payment schemes
Do not agree to any plan where the buyer asks to send a check for more than the sale price and requests that the seller refund the difference. Be suspicious of any buyer who proposes making payment through a friend or agent of the buyer.
File a report. File a report at www.ic3.gov with the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Administration (BJA). IC3 gives victims of cyber crime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism.
