The craftsmanship may be OK, but the interior is seriously ordinary, and the exterior is, well, lets say, different. DKB_SATX has it nailed right and Foiled Again is sure right about the price he might get, with luck.

Looks like the one person on earth decided he does not want it any more...

And to the OP. Ugly is right.

Is it Halloween already? It's FrankenSprinter!

Just looking at it makes me so very glad that Airstream makes the Interstate!

Not for me. I have made a toy hauler trailer from scratch out of a 24' car hauler. No question, lots of work even with a full function trailer to start with.
If you took 150k to purchase the trailer and truck, he wants $70 an hour for his work!
Kudos for a vision and the follow through, but when my friend just purchased a 2001 40' Monaco Density with 2 slides and looks like new for 55k, although not a AS, he can buy a lot of fuel for that price and have some room when gets there!

OK Mom, I heard you . . . I really did. But stilll - that thing is just plain ole hard to look at and the guy must have been going thru a tequila withdrawal when he was dreaming it up.

Funny! I was just watching a youtube video, and spotted this same Airsprint, or Sprinstream... or something, at around 2:45 in:

For that kind of money I'd just buy an Earthroamer and head into the desert. But we all hear our own drummer so I wish him well in finding a buyer.

As Redd Foxx said, "Beauty may be skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone."

Then you're a better man than I am. If he built that hermaphrodite because he wanted it, then I sure hope he didn't decide that he doesn't like it after all. If the builder doesn't like it, why should he think anyone else will?

If he built it on speculation only because he thought someone else might want it (and at that price), then he showed a serious lapse in judgment, and deserves to be stuck with it.

Phishing for offers

I think the owner is just testing the waters to see if there is any interest, now that he's grown bored with it. Seriously, I think he could probably find a buyer at around $125k. The interior is unfortunate.
Tell you what, if you like the Sprinter - Airstream combo, I'll sell you my rig for $100k, you won't need a step ladder to get in, and I'll throw in a $100 fuel card to get you home - anyone? anyone?

OK, the price is silly and the rig is, let us say, ungainly. But give the guy credit for experimenting and bringing it to fruition.

The idea of putting an RV on a truck flatbed isn't new. Getting the truck cab to match well with the trailer is difficult and this didn't work smoothly. Workmanship might be good, hard to tell from the 4 photos.

Maybe he could make new Airstream MH's for WBCCI leaders.
