Selling our 2015 25′ Flying Cloud Front Bedroom w/Twin Bed option, which gives you more room in the sleeping area, more versatility, and a large front storage compartment area. Purchased brand new in 2015 from Windish RV Center in Denver, CO (we are the original owners). There are about 15,000 miles on the original tires. All the appliances work great. We did not get the optional microwave (stove/oven only) and she is housed under an enclosed carport on our property with full hookups. It has 1 Zip-Dee awning that is the manual type & it is in great shape. It is pre-wired for solar, like all Airstreams of this year/model, but we have not installed a solar system or panels.
We’ve had two dogs in the camper, a Scottish Terrier and a Westhighland White Terrier, and no one has smoked in the camper.
1. the galley television is now on a 19″ extendable arm
2. we added a disconnect switch on the batteries for when it’s parked
3. We added window-poppers to all the windows to assist with opening when the gaskets get sticky (https://seeyoudowntheroad.com/products/window-poppers-©)
4. We added a Springfield Marine 3-stage Air-powered Table Pedestal for a custom table top that we made (https://www.campingworld.com/springfield-3-stage-air-powered-table-pedestal-300576_ARCS.html). We’ll be keeping the custom table top, but we still have the original table top with collapsible leg.
5. Currently has the Equal-i-zer 4-point sway control hitch with bars that was originally installed by the dealer we bought it from.
We have had annual maintenance & winterization completed only by Airstream dealers with certified Airstream mechanics every year that we have owned the camper.
1. Air Conditioner: it’s blowing air, but the air does not get as cool as it should. We think it needs to be replaced because it is a sealed system and we think it needs more fluid. The same model today costs $2500.
2. Water issue on original flooring under left side (as viewed from tongue) of dinette. We almost missed it before selling it last year. We are not sure why we had water intrusion in this spot, but the Maintenance Manager at John’s RV (Lexington, SC) thought it might have been from an area on the panoramic window that wasn’t sealed well enough. We did drive it home from a trip where we encountered heavy rains/wind. The plywood underneath this area on the left of the camper is wet (it’s dry on the right) and needs to be repaired for it to be in original condition. All of the flooring is fine except that one spot and it has not gotten any worse (been over a year since we noticed it). If we intended to keep the camper, we would update the flooring.
3. The small closet (wardrobe with LED light) that was originally above the left side twin bed came off the wall while we were towing the camper a couple of years ago and we never replaced it. We do have all the original parts (wood is split), but we never used that closet and had other ideas about safer, more space-efficient ways to store things on that wall.
She’s been a fantastic camper for us, but we’re really retired now and looking for something smaller. Other than the a/c and flooring issue, she’s in excellent condition!

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. IC3 in turn alerts authorities by referring reports to the correct law enforcement or regulatory agencies at the federal, state, local and international level.
