Blue Airstream?

Hello Everyone,

I would really love to buy an old airstream and fix it up for me and my family to take out camping. I recently ran across an old 24 ft airstream that I saw from the side of the road. Not sure about any of the details yet, but it's blue! Nice light blue colour but non-the-less, blue.

Has airstream ever rolled out a factory blue airstream? Or is this something the previous owners did to it?

Thanks for the help in advance.

I don't think Airstream ever made a blue one, though they did produce a few in color for Wally Byam to stand out as the lead trailer on caravans.

However, Airstream's Argosy division always made painted trailers (originally painted a cream white) and the one you saw might be an Argosy that's always been painted that was painted a custom color by a current or previous owner.

Some people have painted Airstream branded trailers as well, of course.

Look at the upper curved area at the front and back (above the window.) If it's made of 3 or more pieces of metal it's an Airstream. If it's just one piece, it's an Argosy.

Post a photo or two and we'll tell you more than you ever wanted to know.

Airstream Life painted an Argosy trailer a light blue-green color. The current owner of that trailer is a forum member here.

Square Stream painted fiberglass trailers

Airstream made a fiberglass trailer for a couple years that were originally metallic silver colored. They were unofficially affectionately called squarestreamers. I am not sure whether they were gel coat or painted. A previous owner could have painted one of those blue. Airstream also made a fiberglass 5th wheel trailer called an Integrity for a couple of years that was white fiberglass.

Thanks for you input everyone. I did take a closer look and it is an Airstream. An international Overlander. Not sure of the nomenclature of these yet, but the paint they used looks good, but not original for sure. Posted a picture for those interested...

Cheers

It's just lonely and wants to come home with you.
