I love my Airstream. She needs some TLC but is beautiful too me. I spent a couple months living in it while on a construction job. It has just sat parked in my backyard for last couple years since then.

I just decided instead of it just sitting in my backyard, it was time to let someone else have their dream camper.

Being a 73 I understand it can be polished to look like a mirror, but I like it like it is.

The previous owner was pretty nasty and smoked. I have done a lot of work just to clean all that up. 

So here are the issues, good and bad…

I ripped out all the old nasty carpet. I had to replace some of the flooring in the living room area. It had gotten soft. I put down laminate flooring in whole camper. 

I bought a new power inverter but have not installed it yet. None of the DC lights work without doing that. I do have some 120v lights I use. I do not have a battery in it because it needs that power inverter.

The original refrigerator died so I replaced it with one that only uses 120v power.

I did a lot of work in the kitchen. New back splash, covered counters, tried some new paint but it came off pantry door.

My wife put new leather cover on the love seat in living area, and I put new wall cover on that old wood panel in there. 

I have painted entire inside walls. 

The commode has come loose from the floor. It is usable but really needs to be fixed. 

I replaced the AC back around 2004. It has AC and heat. The furnace has never worked since I owned the camper. Don't know what that would take to fix but I never needed it. 

The Hot water heater works. 

I have never tried to use the potable water tank and do not believe it even has a pump. I just use tap water.

A 73 camper did not come with a Gray water tank so you will need a portable waste storage tank to use at camp sites.

There are a couple soft spots on the bedroom floor. I was going to strip that room, fix the floor, and turn the bed 90 degrees so my wife would not have to climb over me to get out of the bed. Just never got to that yet. 

I had to remove the old TV antennae off the roof. I just carried a portable Sat. TV dish with me. 

It has brand new tires, only about 300 miles on them. 

I replaced the wheel hubs and got everything greased good. The new hubs came with brand new brakes and they work great. 

I have had problems with the taillights not wanting to work right so I installed some new lights on the bumper. 

This camper is ready to be towed.

Like I said, it can be lived in but could really use restoration. If someone had the time and know how, they could get that restoration done and then it would be worth a whole lot more.
