2017 Airstream International Serenity 23FB
Highly sought after International Serenity front bed layout in excellent condition. Has solar and lithium battery upgrades. We are avid outdoors folk and modified the trailer to be more boondock (no hookups) friendly. Ideal for up to week long trips without having to plug in and of course very comfortable with longer trips. Most recently we did a 5 week trip.
– 2 X 80W flexible solar. This setup is not as easily broken, no risk of leaking, nor puts tension on the roof from wind in the same way that frame mounted solar does. This gives sufficient power for all the trickle power and even charges the battery during the day.
– 12V 100Ah LiFePO4 Lithium Battery. Recently installed this summer and will last 8000 Cycles. Has built-in smart Battery Management System. Sufficient power to not need to plug in at all with the solar as well.
– 1 in lift from swapping trailer tires to larger 16 inch wheels and Michelin 225/75’s with a full size spare with the same tire as well.
– Cell booster. If you have one bar of signal, it will boost it to 3 and in my experience it doubles the data. Very helpful for working remotely!
Some of the things we love about this Airstream:
– The layout has the largest bathroom vs the other 23 foot layouts and is away from the bed.
– Fits in even 20 foot campsites (which opens up a lot of options if camping that route)
– Clearance and size gets us to most dispersed camping
– Surprising amount of storage!
– Aerodynamics makes it easy to town and less drag / sudden wind drafts. We pulled it easily with a 2500 gas non-dually truck.
This model new goes for over $115k not including the upgrades (over $5k in upgrades).

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.
