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

Classic Motorhome For Sale
1981 Airstream Excella 28D

Everything works on this beautiful vintage Airstream, even the factory blender that is mounted in the cabinet top near the sink. All lights inside and out including the walkway lights along the floor.
I bought this two years ago from the second owner. Very little needs to be done to make this classic into a show stopper. I replaced all the water lines so there are no leaks. The upholstery is original so it does show some wear in places. It has twin beds in the rear and the sofa makes into a double bed.
It has the GM 454 cubic inch motor, 50 gal fresh water tank, 6 gal water heater, and good tires all around. I will attach a photo of the specifications page of the owners manual. I also have the original owner and service manuals, and all service records that the previous owners kept.
The only thing I am aware of that needs repair is the air shocks. The brakes are a bit soft but I read on the Airstream Forums that this is normal. Also, the step doesn’t retract. I think it needs a new motor.
Photos are attached. The Onan 6.5 generator has 301 hours on the meter. The odometer indicates 99,000 miles but I don’t know if the is correct.
