It was professionally renovated by C & G. I think it may have better bones than you think. Even the paint job looks to have been done professionally.
Talk about a niche market though. I will be suprised if they come close to the asking price, unfortunately for Magda.

The craigslist listing is working as of today, at least. There are links there for the whole renovation process, including having the former custom office interior removed carefully so that it could be reused.

The exterior isn't a paint job but a sheet of plastic applied "like a sticker." The nature of the adhesive isn't clear, but it would probably be easier to remove than paint if one didn't want the whole eco-boutique legacy.

It's not a paint job - it's a wrap, like used on many commercial vehicles.

Wrap advertising - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It gives me the idea of selling "shiny Airstream" wraps, forever ending the polishing and leaks in a new and novel, if cheating, way!

Interestingly it doesn't look bad. Sort of a cross between a wardrobe closet and a play area.

A polished exterior wrap? Now that's an idea!

It's an Avion and the ad lists it as "light damage" but for someone with an Avion needing parts like windows, awning, interior stuff, etc. it would be a great find. My guess is a pine tree caused the light damage.

Light damage? Maybe from being used as a ramp in a Monster Truck competition.

That looks like April Fool's in September. My crushed 78 did not look quite that bad, and it was totalled.
