1963 Airstream Overlander 26 - Missouri

Title: 1963 Airstream Overlander 26 - Missouri
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

1963 Overlander rebuilt by Uwe Salwender at Area 63 Productions. This meticulous shell off restoration was well documented on the Airforums.

Built to be his personal trailer, Uwe used the best materials and spent a great deal of time getting all the details right on this trailer. The cabinetry is solid wood, not heavy particle board. The cabinet and door faces are flame-top maple and birch and the counter tops are IKEA butcher block. The flooring is cork plank. Custom window coverings throughout.

The interior was sprayed with grey zolatone in 2012. The recessed lighting in the ceiling was converted to LED chips. The under counter and accessory lights are mostly incandescent, but can use the same LED chips as the ceiling.

Boondocking? No problem since this trailer was built for long weekends in Baja. Holding tanks include 55 gallon grey, 25 gallon black, 50 gallon fresh. The grey and fresh tanks are in the frame so they don't take up interior space. Take luxurious long showers with a 10 gallon hot water heater.

Wait a sec..I don't see an AC unit. Not to worry, there is a ducted AC system that is under the mid-ship bed. No rooftop AC! Electrical was run in the event you wish to place one in the future by removing the middle fantastic fan.

Other features:
*3500 lb torsion axles with hydraulic disc brakes.

*30 lb Worthington aluminum LP tanks.

*Coupler Vault hitch lock by Megahitch Lock (Rated strongest in the industry).

*Aluminum 5 pole flag holder with aluminum flag pole.

*Electric hitch jack.

*Aluminum wheels

*Reese dual cam WD/sway control system.

*Astradome and 2 fantastic fans.

*Zip Dee striped awning

*Two sleeping areas which sleeps four adults comfortable.

*Bose acoustimass home theater sound system with Alpine head unit.

*Double sink from IKEA

*Catalytic heater.

*Two additional zolatoned fantastic fan ceiling trim pieces.

Currently winterized in Southwest Missouri. All camping gear included with the unit (Mat, hoses, 30 Amp extension cables, levelers, etc)

For negotiation in the deal is my Sealtech 430R leak detection system. If you ever spring a leak you can hook the machine up and find it. I usually test the trailer every spring before camping. Bring the machine to rally events and make a few dollars on the side by testing some trailers. Need a tow vehicle too? 2004 Crew Cab Chevy 1500 with mid 80,000s and brake controller.

Appraisal from Jim Polk at $68,500 for the trailer alone.

Many more pics available upon request. Serious inquiries only please.
