It's clearly not a TTT build, especially with those squished-down axles. A big 15 gallons of fresh water storage, with an electric water heater. Impressive! Stainless "steal" indeed!

It has been flagged as a scam by someone and removed.

He won't consider selling to me.

I got a kick out of this. When I contacted the owner he said he wouldn't sell it to me to restore because it's been used for storage & it's infested with critters. He'll only sell it if it will be used for storage. I asked about the interior & he wouldn't tell me or send photos when he found out why I was inquiring. Wish it was closer to Phoenix. I'd go take a look at it.

It's on CL also. It was on CL a year ago or longer, and if I remember it was listed in the low $100k's then. I've actually been inside this Airstream when it was at the Trail Along to Pismo Rally a few years ago.

This is a pretty bold quote in the ad:
"THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY AND ONE TIME CHANCE TO OWN THE FINEST CUSTOM BUILT AIRSTREAM IN THE WORLD.."

That's a custom cut, perfectly weighted door-propper-wooden-thingy. Very rare.
