1983 Airstream 310 Turbo Diesel 31 - California

Title: 1983 Airstream 310 31 - California
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

310 Turbo Diesel, 100K miles, mid-bath, rear queen bed, in good condition. Stove, furnace, refrig (Norcold 2-way) replaced in the last 10 years. Front jacknife couch rebuilt with new foam. Cork floors in front, new carpet in back. Sleep Number air-adjustable mattress. Curtains replaced 8 years ago with blackout type. 350 watts of solar panels on the roof, extra coach batteries. Xantrex smart charger and dedicated solar controller. Onan 7KW propane generator and both roof air units work well. Bucket chairs removed but available. 104 gallon diesel tank.

Engine rebuilt 10k ago, new brakes, new tires, Alcoa aluminum wheels. Turbo intercooler. Supersteer front steering damper. Engine-driven a/c has been removed. Electric fans and transmission cooler. Gear Vendors overdrive.

There is the usual list of minor chassis problems. Fuel gauge does not work unless tank is nearly full. Water temp gauge reads high. Horn does not work. Old crack in lower corner of drivers windshield, not in field of view. Slider channels for windows need replaced again. There is no parking brake. There is a Mico Lever-Lock parking brake valve but it is not installed in the brake circuit. Minor (6") dent in the top rear corner, panel patched over rear wheels (both of these have been there since we've had it)

This is the same RV as http://www.viewrvs.com/motorhome/air...1983_310_j.php. I bought it in 2008, had the engine professionally rebuilt and have made several long trips with it. Current California reg,

With the GV this coach goes 65+ on the freeway. Like most 310TDs it is underpowered on hills. Very simple engine and systems, nothing electronic. We have used it happily for 11 years but need something smaller.
You can contact us by filling in the form on the right hand column of the ad listing:

Just wondering, why did the Isuzu need rebuilding with such low mileage?

Because the previous owner fixed a heater hose with a plastic coupling, that melted when it was lying on the engine block, and let the water out.
