2001 Airstream Safari 25 - Florida

Title: 2001 Airstream Safari 25 - Florida
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

This trailer is in excellent overall condition ready to go camping. We are the third owners, and purchased the trailer in February 2014 from a couple who had only owned it 9 months. They told us that when not camping, the original owner had stored the unit inside and the outside appearance of this trailer is consistent with that. We have stored it inside when not in use, as well.

There are two minor dings. The most recent previous owner backed into the trailer when attempting to hook up. The curbside segment protector was pushed back into the segment and a rivet tail punctured the skin. There are minor depressions in the area. The molding around the segment protector was cracked and subsequently failed allowing the protector to vibrate against the skin when traveling at speed resulting in a small area that looks like the segment was sandblasted. The cracked molding has been spliced and stiffness is restored. The second ding is on the roadside rear upper curved segment where I backed into a hose reel when parking in my driveway. The depressions from that incident are barely noticeable.
Now for the good stuff:
Upgrades include woodgrain vinyl sheet flooring throughout, double entry step, Baraldi stainless vent hood as used in the new trailers, LED lighting throughout, wall hanging flat screen TV in the living area, satellite antenna wiring and receiver mount, a PD9260 multistage converter, addition of a quick disconnect for a gas grill, grill mounting rail, and stiffening the area around the fantastic fans to eliminate flexing and leak creation. At the same time, Ultra-breeze covers were added to the fans.
All appliances are in great working order. The air conditioner has kept the trailer comfortably cool in 95 degree temperatures and Florida sun. It is 11,000 BTU and my single Honda 2000i will run it. It also has the heat strip option. The refrigerator keeps ice frozen under the same conditions. There are two fantastic fan vents, both 3-speed bi-directional, one in the living area, one in the bedroom. The one in the living area has a thermostat. We have camped in below freezing weather and the furnace keeps the trailer comfortably warm. The three-burner cooktop looks new. I don’t think either of the previous owners used it much. The convection microwave is new, replaced in 2013. I replaced the smoke alarm and added a carbon monoxide alarm since the trailer didn’t have one. One propane tank was re-certified in 2015 and one is new. The original power converter was replaced with PD9260 multi-stage unit in 2014. The battery box on the tongue holds one Group 27 which was replaced by the previous owner in 2014. It performed well in our one night off-grid.
When the trailer was new the original owner had the gaucho replaced with La-Z-Boy recliners at JAckson Center. As a part of this upgrade, custom storage low around the front of the trailer behind the recliners conceals the converter and provides extra space for storage. The center of this unit sticks out like an automotive console and has space for a table lamp and lidded storage.
The couple we bought it from replaced the carpet with woodgrain vinyl flooring in 2013. At the same time the convection microwave and the furnace thermostat were replaced.
The awning (solid blue) was apparently replaced, is in excellent condition, and Includes a matching side curtain and extension handles.
Wheels and tires including the spare were replaced with Sendel T03655 and Michelin LT225/75-16s; Centramatic balancers and a Dill TPMS were added in 2014. At the same time, the brake drums were removed and the brake system inspected. Two brake magnets were replaced on one axle and the magnet surfaces of those drums were turned. Bearings and seals were replaced. All old grease (at least four types) was cleaned out and bearings were packed.

We have put around 6000 trouble-free miles on this trailer, most recently to Canopener 2016. It is ready to use!
