1982 Airstream 280 28 - California

Title: 1982 Airstream 280 28 - California
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

This 1982 28' Airstream Motorhome has been lovingly restored with originality respectfully enhanced as necessary and is in exceptional, beautifully running condition with all systems working and in order.

The original 454 7.4 liter 454 GMC engine has under 55,000 miles and was lovingly cared for and maintained by the prior original owner. It has been meticulously tuned and ready for road travel anywhere you need to take her. New industrial 4 core radiator with extra cooling baffles, new high output plugs and wires, new belts and hoses throughout, new starter motor, new thermostat, new water pump, new alternator, rebuilt carburetor, power steering pump, valve cover gaskets, fresh oil, tuned and runs fabulously. This is an extremely straight and true exterior which has been highly polished and is near mirror like in its finish. There are no flaws with the exception of a small 2" section just left of the entry door which I have left unprepared but could be hidden by a small plaque off the Vintage Trailer site.

This is the rear bath model with a tub/shower, Twin Beds, 4 Burner cooktop with Stove, Stainless double sinks, 3 way refrigerator, custom counter top blender and loads and loads of interior and exterior storage.

A few of the other Features and Details:

All LED Running Lights, Tail and Brake lights
6 All New Tires + very good spare
Onan 6.5 Genset / Tuned and Low Hours / Runs Great
New wood laminate flooring
Bluetooth iPhone music system
Rear Bath tub and sink freshly epoxy painted
Double Rooftop Air Conditioning
New Batteries, both Starting and House System
Original 3-Way refrigerator works exceptionally
All interior lighting changed to low voltage LED
Back Up Camera
360 Degree Rotating Rooftop Flood light operable from cockpit
Fresh, New Curtains throughout
Airbag Suspension upgraded with new air compressor
New exhaust with chrome tip
New exterior vinyl trim
New exterior mid stripe paint
All storage compartments have custom diamond plate
Custom Spare Tire Cover
Tow Hitch
New Brakes: new brake master cylinders, 4 new calipers, new pads all the way around, new front brake lines, new front steering stabilizer.
Restored Roof top Air Horn
New Front and rear chrome wheel inserts
Completely Polished with correct 4 step system / Mirror Like Finish
Zip Dee Awning in fabulous condition
New on demand fresh water pump installed
Original seats from interior of the coach originally across from the settee were removed and will go with the sale
Original Airstream Operating Manual and various original pamphlets, etc.
Clear California Title
California Personalized License Plate: "AIRSTYLE"

This beauty has been recently smogged in CA and is properly, clearly titled which will be delivered to the new buyer upon payment in full. This coach is ready to go anywhere so for out of state buyers, you should have no reluctance to fly in and drive away. For those out of state buyers, I will gladly work through the logistics of this sale with you and am willing to store the vehicle inside our warehouse for one month free while you work out travel plans. I am happy to store beyond a month for an agreed upon fee. Additionally I may be able to arrange delivery for an agreed upon fee. I am also willing to cooperate with any purchasers desire to engage a pre-purchase inspection prior to end of auction or conclusion of sale.

Feel free to call me at 858.752.3434 should you have questions.

Do you have pictures of the bathroom? If you would be so kind more pictures would help. I am really interested in the motorhome. I don't like the motor, we've had a motorhome with that motor and it was trouble. Anything you can tell me about it would be helpful.

Thank you
