2016 AIRSTREAM FLYING CLOUD 25FB—TWIN
NO CATS, NO DOGS, NO SMOKE; LOTS OF WINE!
After fulfilling our dream to camp around the western US, it is time to move to the next adventure. Our trailer is in excellent condition; we have enjoyed it only for camping and not as a “cottage”. We have logged about 16,000 miles over 162 days of camping between Wisconsin, the Pacific Northwest, and Arizona. This trailer is all set to go with all systems functioning perfectly. We have removed everything inside and out.
The trailer is in Fountain Hills, Arizona (Scottsdale); it is titled in Wisconsin and was originally titled in Arizona. It is equipped with the AS “Awning Package”. In March 2019, we installed new ‘Batteries Plus X-Power’ AGM batteries, and our AS dealer installed a solar system: Twin 90 watt “Skinny” Zamp brand panels ($2,200) using the AS pre-wiring….what a terrific improvement; wish we had it originally. The tires were replaced Jan-2018 after 13,000 miles. We will include the Blue Ox Sway-Pro 1000 weight distribution hitch, and some fine fitted sheets ($500–unit comes without sheets!) The decorative pillows and bedspreads were packed away when we purchased trailer so are like new. On the downside the curbside stone guard….the curved dark tinted plastic protective window shield caught a mean stone and has a shatter-like crack about 4”. It would be easy to replace and would cost about $700; we debated replacing it for the next owner, but it is not very noticeable and if you’re doing some serious exploring, you might want to leave as is. Unfortunately, the rectangular center shield also has a much smaller crack. We’re not sure when or how, but probably a gravel road in a National Park. Other than this, no dents, no scratches.
The pictures tell most of the story. The Airstream features list is long; if you would like to see it, we can send a pdf copy. And if more pictures are desired, just let us know. Clear title so if you like what you see, we can get you rolling in a day! It is located at an RV storage place and could probably stay there if that helps.

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.
