Perfectly maintained by the original and only owner, this flying beauty is located in Harrison, Ohio and is ready for a new road companion.

The Airstream has a gleaming aluminum body, adorned with the classic riveted look. It's been through professional repairs in Jan 2021, making it as good as new. The panels are clear of hail or filiform damage. Minor scratches near awning points and some faded moldings only add character to this timeless beauty.

Hatch Covers, Windows, and Entrance:
All operating smoothly with keys provided for each. The entrance door works perfectly with spare keys for door locks. The windows are all in excellent shape, with seals intact and minimal scratches on the front protective windows.

All original Zip Dee awnings are in excellent shape, ready to provide shade for your outdoor lounging. The awnings are manual and easy to operate.

Frame and Sub-Floor:
The frame is structurally sound, and the sub-floor doesn't have any soft spots, gaps, or holes. The belly pan is also original, intact, and damage-free.

Boasting an excellent interior layout, this Airstream's design maximizes comfort and efficiency. Upon entering, you'll find a large U-shaped dinette, convertible into a queen-sized bed. There is ample storage throughout the unit, making it perfect for longer journeys.

The bathroom features a sizeable shower with a fiberglass surround and a built-in seat. A tensioned sliding translucent panel serves as the shower door. And guess what? There's a bidet too!

Standard short queen shown in the floorplan has been extended to a full queen bed.

Pet-free and Smoke-free:
Rest assured, no pets or smoke have ever been inside this pristine Airstream!

Equipped with a 3-burner propane range, a 7 cu ft Dometic refrigerator/freezer, and upgraded sinks and taps, meal prep will be a breeze. The countertops are newly replaced, giving a fresh and contemporary look.

Exterior Condition Description:: Exterior body is generally in excellent condition. Scratch on front storage door, several other minor scratches near main awning support points. A ding in roadside stainless steel hinged body protective panel. There is one piece of missing beltline molding between the entry door and the wheel well. Additionally, some of this molding on the curbside has faded/blistered and a short section needs to be re-adhered at the front of the trailer. Several lower body aluminum panels on the roadside required replacement when the unit grazed a protective support post when pulling away from a gas pump. No frame or structural damage was sustained. The lower aluminum sheets were replaced along with wheel well trim pieces/extrusions, moldings, etc. This repair was performed at the Airstream Factory Service Center in Jan 2021. Looks like new.

Moving toward the rear on the kitchen side is a pullout pantry that includes the microwave on one shelf, the refrigerator/freezer, and then a large closet adjacent to the bedroom. Turning left and heading down the hallway, the self-contained (non-split) bathroom is on the left in the center of the coach on the curb side. The bedroom is in the rear. There is ample storage throughout the unit. The overall condition of the interior is excellent.

Sleeping Areas?: Total sleeping capacity is 4. If you have 3 small children they may all be able to sleep on the queen-sized dinette sleep area in the front of the unit (upping the sleeping capacity to 5). The rear bedroom features an east-west full-size queen bed (converted from a short-queen). We had a Sleep Number mattress which is moving to our new trailer. There is a new-in-the-box Linenspa Spring and Memory Foam mattress that comes with the unit. There is storage under the bed. Some storage can be accessed without lifting the bed up. There is a triangular-shaped dresser with 2 drawers and overhead storage at the rear of the unit above the windows. Each side of the bed has electric and USB outlets.
Mattress and Sleeping Surfaces:: The dinette cushions convert to a flat surface, are in excellent shape, and are comfortable.
Interior Soft Surfaces: - Cushions / Fabrics / Upholstery:: The only upholstery are the original leather dinette cushions which are in excellent shape.
Curtains and Blinds: : There are roller shades for all the awning or fixed windows along the sides of the coach. The small fixed upper windows in the dinette area and the skylight have pleated sunshades. There are wraparound drapes (on tracks) at the front and rear wraparound windows. These panels are are in several sections and velcro together to close. Blackout panels were added to the wraparound drapes in the bedroom. All blinds/shades/drapes are original (other the the blackout modification) and are in excellent shape.
Interior Walls: : Interior aluminum walls and ceiling are very good shape. There is a rub mark on the aluminum above/near the kitchen sink from a hanging metal fruit basket. There are also some scratches on the aluminum walls at the rear and far side of the bed. There are some missing interior rivets. The interior laminate walls are in excellent shape - no damage. Typically command strips were used so there are only a couple of small holes from fasteners. There is a magnet board we left screwed to the hallway wall.
Cabinets, Doors and Counters: : Cabinetry (including doors and drawers) is in excellent shape. European hinges on all. All laminate countertops were replaced because we did not like the dark green glossy laminate that came from the factory. The new laminate looks similar to quartz and has exposed plywood edges. We converted the dinette to a single tabletop. We did not like the split table for playing games on and always used both sections. If a split tabletop is desired, the existing top could be cut and the edges routed. A book/tablet/laptop shelf was added below the front overhead storage cabinets. Also a side panel was added to keep the curbside dinette cushion in place better. These additions are both from birch plywood and match the existing interior laminate very closely.

Stove and Oven:: 3 burner propane range. Spark ignition for burners. Stainless fold-down cover for burners when not in use and stainless oven door. Oven location at one end of kitchen countertop.
