1957 Airstream Overlander 26 - Minnesota


I’ve been rebuilding this iconic trailer for 1.5 years and hate to see this go but my wife found a 30’ Airstream and wants the extra room for our family.

So far I haven’t cut any corners (and not just because there are no corners in an Airstream). Here are some of the steps so far:
• I carefully stripped it down to the studs preserving most of the original parts.
• Removed all the old insulation and 110 wiring, rotten subfloor, and mouse presents
• Put on new tires
• Sanded and coated the metal frame with several coats of rust restoring product and welded supports where needed
• Installed electric jack
• New DryPly subfloor (because I want this floor to last!)
• New wiring and plumbing in progress
• Polished the inside of the door (I know you’re supposed to wait until the end for that reward but I couldn’t resist!)
• Sanded and painted tongue and installed electric jack
• Countless other things.

The shell is in excellent condition for being over 60 years old! No broken windows, funky smells, or frame issues. It’s been a crazy amount of work to get it to this point but it’s a blank canvas ready for all the fun work.

The price is negotiable depending on what you all want included. For example, I have a ton of the original insides and lots of new parts too.

Here is a 360 view I took so I have a reference to the original layout and functionality for if I wanted to reuse all the existing pieces while putting back together: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.8235376,-93.5746909,0a,75y,180h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sAF1QipPFTReQNeCNiMVd_x08EbohemrP_Vaq1qeH_MV3!2e10
