SOLD: 1957 Airstream Overlander 26' Single Axle - Travel Ready


Research has revealed some interesting facts about this trailer. It is titled as a 1958, but is actually a 1957 model - vin is O-7373, which puts it as a 1957 Ohio build trailer.

1957 was the year the end cap design switched from 13 panel to 7 panel. This trailer is a 7 panel design, but was built early in 1957, before the line switched to that design. Meaning, this is likely a prototype trailer for the 7 panel design.

Here's a nice vintage Airstream Overlander (26 ft) that is ready to hit the road.

Title says 1958 but specs and serial number match 1957.

It has a wonderful vintage vibe and features the original Zolatone paint inside.

This trailer is mostly original but is certainly ready to enjoy in its current condition. It is camp ready, but not off-grid ready as it needs to be plugged into shore power - note the apartment style fridge and microwave.
