PENDING - Vintage 1965 Airstream Safari 22'

PENDING - We're selling a solid 1960s vintage trailer. She went through a 2020 resto-mod, and we did everything we could to keep her as original as possible and upgraded when necessary.

She sleeps 4: 2 twins and a 1 full pullout couch

Original Layout
New bellypan
Frame was sanded, a few outriggers were replaced, and 2 coats of POR-15 applied. (Her frame looked almost new when we removed the pan. Frame is in EXCELLENT condition.)
New 20 gal black tank
Original refinished bath insert in EXCELLENT condition (there is a new toilet)
Rebuilt most bottom cabinets just like the originals
Added support to the original upper cabinets
Original cabinet knobs
New cushions and upholstery
New curtains
New kitchen counter
Original sink
New kitchen and bathroom faucets
New water tank
New RecRro range
All new PEX plumbing
New hot water heater
Newer tires (2018) with baby moon hubcaps
New vinyl flooring
Older fridge (not original but the kind that doesn't die, so we kept it)
New window glass with UV film
New (original style) window hardware
Manual vintage-style sunbrella awning (12x9)
Polished 2021
All seams were resealed post-polishing
Complete original 1965 manual

We recently had some high-quality professional work done to her exterior by Vintage Basecamp. (We weren't skilled enough to do her belly pan wings, and they did a bang-up job for us.) Greg at VBC said we could point prospective buyers to him if there are any questions about the integrity of this amazing vintage trailer.

Clean Title... Asking $37,500 OBO

Again, she’s in great shape, and we’re happy to FaceTime with anyone that wants to see her.

Hello. I’m interested in learning more about this trailer.

Can you talk tomorrow about it?

I’m travelling through Ohio tomorrow for work if that somehow works into your schedule to look at your trailer in person.
