Title: 1981 Airstream 280 28 - California
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

We are considering selling our 35+year old Classic Airstream Motorhome. Has the 454 Chev big block and gets about 10+ mpg SOMETIMES 12MPG at highway crusing 65 to 70mph is the sweet spot. MILES ARE ABOUT 73,000 AS OF 10/2014. New Air Bags installed, everything works. The generator runs on Propane instead of gas. The Roof and New Dash AC. Installed a new AM/FM/CD Player with several speakers in the Coach. We added the Side Power Heated Mirrors, No leaks, All new control arms and front end work, Does NOT have Lever System. All upholstery is original and in great condition, There is a small hole on the couch, Has a built in Safe and Microwave, Built in Vacuum System, New Battery's,Electronic ignition was added a few years ago, Stainless Exhaust System, Have receipts for all work done over the past many years, Lots of storage, Interior lighting is beautiful and has 2 levels of lighting at night that is very impressive. This drives as well as my car and will tow anything you want. Tires are new. If your looking for a classic RV, this is it.
There is a scrape on the lower rear passenger side of coach in the rear where I hit a fire plug.


The Clear coat is pealing off on one side and that should be addressed. But it does not affect the integrity of the coach.
The windshield is cracked on both sides. Does not leak and I have not replaced it because I am afraid the seals may start leaking if replaced, Plus the cost of the windshield, I don't know where I can buy a replacement.
You can contact us by filling in the form on the right hand column of the ad listing:
