Mercedes emblem, kinda cool, that HUGE Porsche emblem on the rear roof, kinda tacky. Plus, the fact that he's removed all of the ducted heating and ran gas lines on the walls for his heaters, REALLY tacky, then to ask 30K for it? Someone will step to the front and buy it, know he's got it plastered on Craigslist, lol.

Heaters...the po removed the front Suburban heater, so we bought a propane catalytic heater for coffee time...have decided to pull the back room Suburban and install an olympic catalytic ...will also mount another one up front by the door...in the meantime, you can purchase an attachment for a 5 gallon propane tank for about $15 which will allow you to refill the little green tanks...we usually fill 5-6 times before discarding...use a magic marker to slash the number of times you have refilled...will save a bit of money...the Suburbans pull a LOT of energy from the batteries, and most of the heat is discharged out the vents...olympics(and others) are non vented, but are fairly reliable...of course, you will have installed the gas/carbon monoxide alarm low in the unit...it should already have a smoke detector on the ceiling...I'll continue to bore you with these thoughts unless you want me to stop...m

for what he has done. 30,000 is one HECK of a deal.

OK, take off the Porsche emblem.

I have restored Two A.S. trailers and One 345 is still in the works.

and to get the mechanical s to where this unit is could cost 10, to 15,000 thousand.

If you buy a 10,000 A.S. 345 you can spend 30,000 to bring it to Prime

If you buy a 20,000 A.S. You will spend 20,000 to bring it to Travel trouble free Prime.

If I purchased the ( Polished ) unit in Florida.

after what he has done. I would be HAPPY to spend 10,000 to personalize the special unit.

I showed this unit to my daughter and son in Law and told them that I thought it would be a very nice basic mechanical unit for them to start with and personalize over time. for the $$$

only some one that has never restored. used and Properly maintained a Vintage classic Airstream would argue with that.

Amen to that...still haven't 'properly' restored mine, but the SS checks just won't do it, and no one will spend the large amount of bucks I want for the house so we can go full time...we average about $2500/ yr in maintenance, and tire time is fast approaching...apparently, gas time is already here...but, we're still on the road most of the time, and I'm not in a foreign country sweating my butt off protecting people like me complaining...THANKS TROOPS!!!m

Realize I've never restored an Airstream, the unit in Florida is nice, just not my 'cup of tea'. He's done an inordinate amount of work, and yes, I agree, it looks great!

Now here is a Jewel in the rough
I see it as a great Opportunity to have a Supreme, Limited number manufactured. and very Functional. Drivable Classic.

Yes, one may have to do some dealing to get it for a value one can live with. But that is always a personal matter.

I think after the Purchase. Regardless of what you may pay to own this great M.H. I can see spending $25,000 very easily.

or drive, use and enjoy just the way it is. would work for many.


We are selling our much loved (and sometimes hated)370LE








We are selling our much loved (and sometimes hated)370LE. This RV is in Great condition and is used regularly. We went from Raleigh,NC to Los Angeles last year with it.I have been told that there were only 15 of these ever built,I know of only 8 still in existence.

This RV has had many repairs done since we aquired it in 2007.

2007/08 New Ford 460 Engine new water pump,distributor,ign. coil,ign. module,plugs ,plug wires, carb. rebuilt etc. Transmission overhauled,new Gear Vendors over/underdrive unit installed,Recored radiator.Normal maintenance etc.

2009 All leveling cylinders rebuilt,5 New tires,New front brakes.New Parking Brake shoes and hardware.Normal maintenance etc.

2010 3 New batteries (house batteries are deep cycle Marine batteries) New Dash Air A/C compressor. Replaced all flooring with Marble, Tiled bathroom,Tiled kitchen wall. Replaced blinds with aluminum mini-blinds,had curtains dry cleaned and had all new slide tabs installed on curtains.Shampooed upholstery.Replaced inner spring on awning. Normal Maintenance etc.

2011 Removed 6.5 Onan generator and did complete tune,replaced ign. coil and wires,replaced generator brushes oilchange etc. etc. Lined generator compartment with Dyna-Matt soundproofing material(can barely hear generator from inside).Normal maintenance etc.

I am a truck mechanic and have done all of the repairs since we bought this RV in 2007.

Exterior is overall good condition,paint is pretty good,there is one dent in the left rear that was there when we bought it. Clearcoat is starting to peel on rear.

This RV is ready to head to the beach or where ever right now!!!

We are open to reasonable offers

Hi, I looked at your unit for sale. Have checked with my City's Codes and Compliance earlier this year, as I do actually have room at my home to park an Airstream in the backyard (alley access). My only problem with your rig is that it's too long for the City's codes. I'm limited to 12' height, 8' width and 35' length according to Codes. And, believe you me, they will be there to see that it doesn't go over the limits, as it seems these guys are out to write as many notices as possible lately. Guess it's showing the Mayor they are actually out there doing their jobs??? lol

I would say he is asking Just what he has Invested in the rig including the Purchase price.
