So I'm new to all the Airstream stuff and as such I need some advise. I do my homework and try to always put my best foot forward when making a life choice. I say life choice because I'm looking at buying an Airstream to live in, not just as a fair weather tin canner but year round wrapped up in aluminum. So anything I buy needs to be livable and quality. Up for sale in my neck of the woods is a 31' 1970 Sovereign
fully restored. I'll post the ad and pictures so you can see and read it all for yourself, I just need the wisdom of those that know which stream to take and which one avoid. So here it is...
Clear Title/ current registration. She is ready to roll! Clean and fresh are words best used to describe this renovation. The trailer has been gutted and every inch of it has been cleaned meticulously. The sub-flooring and old insulation were removed and replaced. The belly frame was stripped and treated with rust preventative paint and the new sub-floor is moisture treated plywood and all seams were bondoed. The cabinets were cleaned thoroughly repaired and reinstalled with new working hardware. No dark, dirty, dusty corners in this trailer.Non-smoking/no animals. The bathroom was completely dissablemed. The components were cleaned and resurfaced and and all surfaces behind the components were scrubbed and painted before the bathroom was reassemled. So it is clean and sanitary even behind the surfaces you can see. We renovated this trailer with two purposes in mind- to be used as a guest cottage as well as be completely camp functional / road worthy. All lights inside and out work. A side note: We have never used the air conditioner. We have never needed it. It blows, but it could probably use servicing. It pulls like a dream we use a Toyota Tundra.
We stripped the clear coat off the exterior and we were so pleased with it's current shine we did not feel it needed a mirror polish. However, if that's what you want, the hard part has already been done for you. Now all you have to do is polish it.
This is a 42 year old trailer and she has well earned beauty marks. She is not perfect but pretty darned close! She is definitely a head turner. It is breaking our hearts to sell her but our circumstances have changed and we have to part with her.
This is a used trailer and is being sold as-is/where-is with no warranty expressed or implied. This Airstream is in wonderful condition, but please be realistic- it is used, it is not "perfect" there are minor imperfections. We would welcome and recommend that you see it in person. We will be available to show it all of this coming week, just call and we'll set up a time. Please DO NOT email questions we will answer any questions by phone call 360 599 9606.
