Trailer to Motorhome Conversion! Whoa!

Here is an interesting one! "Bring equipment for removal" is never a good sign!
1981 Airstream, VIN #131D5J38102, plate #RV82580 exp. 2002, 15,000 GVW, 460 c.i. Ford V8 engine, Onan generator, this vehicle has not run in years, damage to rear corner, dirty interior, inside has damage in rear corner due to weather exposure, fridge, stove, sink, carpet, captain's chairs, water damage on ceiling, no keys, seller drove it on to property and it has not been driven since, bidder to inspect. Bring equipment for removal.
Too bad the pictures have a watermark. I'd love to have this one on my site! I'll have to download the pictures just to have in my records.

If the rear wasn't smashed, this would have been cool as a permanently parked unit in an Airstream Park like Minn.

This is HOT but who has the time to redo it?
Put it on a modern diesel air chassis and GO!
If you want attention then this is it.

The real beauty of this conversion is never having to make potty stops.

Well I hope you're at least pulling over to the side. Otherwise those moving driver switches can get really dangerous.

Or you are possibly referring to the alternative where you mod your driver seat to a black tank.. Intense, man, intense.

It almost looks better that the original airstream moterhome's
The dent is the rear is not to bad I think.
Can be fixed cheap with any 80,s airstream part.
Hope it won't go to waste of for scrap.

I think I'd rather finish off the Cessna 195. Those have always been cool.

Somebody had a lot of time on their hands. Is that even safety glass for the wind shield? Can that be right?
