Guess what? It's back on eBay.....

Ultra RARE Vintage 1979 Airstream Travel Trailer RV | eBay

Same listing pops up every few months, bids usually reach around $4.5-5K and not reach the reserve, but last time 'sold' at $15K. Now the same seller has it re-listed with the same pictures, and a slightly different description (previously it was a running project now the engine is disconnected).

I am fascinated by the term "rare gem". This looks like about a $50,000 to $100,000 project, depending on who does the work. Maybe someone should find out what the transportation costs are for their area and make an offer to have it removed if the seller pays for transporting....😂😃😉

^^ Yes this 290 looks worthy of serious consideration.
I do wonder if the conversion is well fettled in, if so that and the rear bed, general refreshed condition could make for desirable rig to get into!

Sure sounds like it. It would be paying 50 cents on a dollar if all is as described. But then again, we all know that there is always more to the story. Only drawback I see is the lack of awnings

Does the stock th400 tranny mate up with that chevy diesel? He doesnt mention a transmission change. I guess that motor is a Detroit, does it have a good reputation?

No matter how you slice it, that is a fine coach! If I were still looking, I would probably have grabbed it myself.

Considering all the mechanical work that was done to that moho, how do you end up with a picture of the toilet rather than the engine?
