New on the market, ready to roll after a 15-year covered & caring stay in Seattle. Extremely rare, hard to find small size and excellent condition. Owned by lifetime Airstream aficionados, statistics and information in this ad are accurate.

This gem of a vintage luxury travel trailer has no dents, original woodwork, and working appliances. Lucy’s upholstery and drapes are in excellent condition. Her clear coat skin shows some age on the outside due to normal wear, but on the inside she’s young & restless. Her interior vinyl walls and cupboards are like new; she’s been a lifelong non-smoker. Lucy sleeps 2 adults and 2 kids inside, has a 3-burner stove with oven, sink & refrigerator, 6 gallons hot water, shower, bathroom sink and toilet in great condition.

Lucy has 2-7.5-gallon aluminum propane tanks on the front, holds 30 gallons of fresh water & 12 gallons of black water underneath.

Constructed in Cerritos CA in 1968, we aren’t sure where she spent her youth but in her 20’s she tried show business. After a successful role in “Toothless” with Kirstie Ally, Lucy abandoned Hollywood. Moving to Seattle in 1999, Lucy became the traveling lodge for a middle age couple & two kids. This is when Lucy received her Washington State license plate “R Lucy”, new classic & appropriate upholstery & drapes, a new interior fan, carpet, a rear bike rack receiver, 4 way stabilizer jacks, and an electric hitch jack! Lucy’s pipes, both copper fresh water and plastic drains are in fabulous shape.

Lucy and family traveled throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia and Alberta over the past 15 years. She’s experienced everything from hot deserts, ocean beaches & mountains to performing as a ski lodge at Whistler! A few years back in 2012 she acquired new tires, they’re in excellent shape with a just a few thousand miles. Wheel bearings just repack and brakes checked. She is ready to go! Has complete manuals and paperwork.
