Airstream Overlander For Sale
One in a million chance! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of RV history! For sale is one 1955
Airstream Overlander built in the Jackson Center Ohio factory in 1954
. This appears to be one of the first actual Overlander models to come off the line. This is not a “Cruiser” model as is suggested by the autofill title on the Airstream Classifieds site. Its an actual Overlander model which was new for 1955
and this one includes TWO of the three available upgrades. It has the water tank (sans pump) and gas lights. The gas lights are still intact as well as the globes. This is the highly sought after Double Thirteen endcap single axle model.
The trailer has the original layout and has not been altered in a major way as most vintage Airstreams are by this time. I did remove the ratty carpet and the old floor tiles so I could see what the plywood decking looked like. I saved one of the best tiles from the closet for reference. I have cleaned out the trailer and just washed the exterior. I have not plugged in the trailer to an RV plug, but I did try out the 1954
Marvel refrigerator and it worked! I didn’t hook up the gas system, but I have a strong feeling that the Sunray gas stove and Sunair furnace would work just fine if properly cleaned. That is to say by no means I would recommend using the trailer in its current condition. It needs work and a lot of it. I would deem it a great restoration project and I think the interior is still intact enough that a person could do well restoring the original stuff. It does not have the front Gaucho (but I do have the two drawers that went with it) and I trashed the ratty old airfoam mattresses where the twin beds are, but retained the wood of course.
This is not a 70’s model, its not a 60’s model, this is not a late 50’s model, this is a 1955 Overlander, the first production year for the actual Overlander model.
I have a clear and merchantable title with the trailer and a key! The trailer is able to be hooked up and towed (no lights), but I wouldn't do it if your were going to take it a long ways off. I have a few additional pictures if someone wants to see them. Also I will require anyone who buys this trailer to make a complete personal inspection or have a representative of the buyer make an inspection) of the trailer or I simply will not sell it to you. I will be happy to answer questions as well as I can. Leave a message if no answer or email me. Thanks
