1972 Airstream Overlander 27 - Texas

Title: 1972 Airstream Overlander 27 - Texas
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

Trailer is in very good, nearly original condition. The skin is in excellent condition for a trailer this age. The only dents are in the banana skins. All glass is unbroken. Trailer is leak free. Upgrades inside include vinyl flooring, renovated bathroom, PEX waterlines to the bathroom, new ceiling light lenses, upgraded upholstery from original (in very good shape), new faucets in bath and kitchen, puck lights in closet and pantry. Other upgrades include new 15K btu air conditioner (2015), new brakes and turned drums (2014), new petcock valve on water heater (2015), new Wineguard TV antenna (2015), new breakaway cable (2015), new tow vehicle to trailer 12V cable (2015). Propane tanks have been updated. All exterior marker lights have been replaced (2015), tail light lenses replaced several years ago. Spare tire and rim purchased in 2011. All plastic bins are present and accounted for. Trailer has been from TX through NM to Denver, Grand Junction, Telluride, over Monarch Pass and back to TX with no issues, as well as on local trips. Original water heater, refrigerator furnace stove top and oven work. Has an electric tongue jack. Trailer has been camped in recently with no problems.

The not so good: tires hold air, aren't weather checked, but are old. Needs hubcaps. Tambour in front of furnace needs replaced; the rest of the tambour works well. Frig probably needs a new element; it works great on propane, freezer works on propane and electric, but frig not so well on electric. Cools but not cold enough. Weather seals on windows and door will need to be replaced soon. Battery is shot, needs replaced. We've always stayed in RV parks so never needed it. Also has electric jack, 2/3 of floor is new Allure vinyl, Pattern still available at Home Depot if you want to replace the rest.

Note that original air conditioner is shown in exterior pictures; trailer has a 3 month old Dometic unit on it now.

Contact me for more pictures.
