1982 Airstream 280 28 - Colorado

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


Rare factory Diesel unit, 78,000 original miles. New Isuzu 6BDI 340 c.i. turbo diesel installed approx 16,000 miles ago with upgraded electronics, exhaust for increased power and torque. New turbo installed. Chevrolet TH400 3 speed transmission with GearVendor overdrive.Chassis is a GM P-3. All 6 tires (Hancock) near new with 14-16/32's tread.

This motor home is ready to travel now. It has been very well cared for and updated to meet the demands of today's modern camping and travel. We are the fourth owners. Original Owner from California. Other previous owners from New Hampshire and Michigan. I purchased from Michigan owner in 2009 and drove to Colorado with no problems. Most improvements and upgrades were made by previous owner, All major receipts and documentation available for improvements and upgrades provided from 2004 to present. We performed and passed all yearly Colorado Emissions tests.Recent maintenance performed. Has always been garaged since our ownership in 2009.Have driven very little since owned (reason for selling). Started and driven regularly since owned. Mechanically unit is very sound. All previous owners of this unit had taken very good care of it. Minor Items to note: Slight body damage rear left and right corners(pictures), minor dents to skin (pictures), small repairable spot in skin by door, approx 2" diameter (picture).. Overall unit is in very good condition. This is a unit that could be made into a masterpiece with minor work or can be enjoyed as is for many years,

Improvements and upgrades include the following : Front,rear brakes and steering dampers replaced about 8,000 miles ago. Chassis has been rewired and charging system upgraded. Other improvements include: Kwikee electric double step, laminated floors, custom pleated blinds, custom mattresses (one pillow top, one memory foam), custom oak dashboard, new 60 amp battery minder power converter, stereo radio wired for XM and Ipod, engine block heater, water heater by-pass, computer stand, replaced window moldings and screens, new bushings and pins in entrance door hinges, florescent bedroom lighting, replaced swivel captains and co-captain chairs, reinforced receiver for towing. with updated wiring harness. Fantastic Fan with new screen, Max Air rain vent cover, oversized collapsible entry handle, updated solid oak interior walls, doors and trim. Exterior aluminum has been stripped and polished from roof line line. Plus many more details too numerous to mention.

The motor home features : Two air conditioners, original Nutone counter blender with newer motor and switch assembly, double sinks, three way domestic refrigerator, electronic ignition water heater with by-pass, two large cedar closets, six drawer dresser, microwave (replaced oven ), three burner ignitor stove with vent fan, electronic command center, foldout dinette table, four 12V receptacles , air horn, spotlight,door bell, full retractable canvass awning, hydraulic leveling jacks, air bad suspension with newer automatic rear compressor.
