4×4 2018 Airstream Interstate Grand Tour Extended Twin
We have decided to sell our coach and plan to move to a smaller Class B for more off-road use. This has been a wonderful RV with the 4WD system, we’ve been able to drive on the beach and on two-track. The twin beds have REAL mattresses and is one of the best things about this model. This floorplan seats two (only two seatbelts) and sleeps two very comfortably without having to make-up the bed every day and night, no sleeping on uncomfortable car cushions!
The Mercedes chassis has been exceptional, 16.5 mpg average. I have done Service A myself around 12k miles, changed the oil and replaced all filters including the fuel filter and cleaned the EGR valve. The coach has had some items replaced under warranty, i.e. the invertor, the bath exhaust fan, and a window shade motor. We have upgraded many things on this RV to make it more useful. These include adding two extra AGM batteries for a total of four. All-terrain tires with a stiffer sidewall, these made the ride much more comfortable and agile while actually reducing the road noise. The Sumo springs are extended bump-stops that reduced the sway on this vehicle. Combined with the AT tires, this stopped the “lane float” and made it much easier to drive long distances. All parts have been professionally installed.
Other additions include a cellular extender, an aluminum brush bar with bull bar covering the front of the van. The rear door ladder was a great addition. It really helps when you need to clean or inspect items on the roof like the solar panels. Also handy if you need to clean off your awning before retracting it. The teak shower mat will not mold or mildew. The vent fan cover you can keep the vent open while traveling and in the rain. The yellow film on the fog lights helps reduce glare during severe weather such as heavy rain, snow, or fog when white light tends to bounce off and reduce visibility.
This will need to be paid off at the bank where the loan is either by a verified cashier’s/certified check by a bank or direct transfer from your bank or through escrow. The bank holds the title and will be issued to me after 7-10 business days by mail and will be signed over to the buyer and can be mailed. Once I receive a receipt from the bank saying the unit is paid in full, I will hand the keys over to you, title to follow. No accidents, non-smoking, pet owner.

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.
