This very well equipped 32’ x 8’ Airstream is capable of full-time travel. It has substantial storage space and amenities. Sleeps up to six (two adults on bed, one adult or two children on converted dinette and two adults on pull out couch). Everything is in working order (the one minor exception is the clock on the Airstream monitor panel). Many fixtures and appliances are relatively new. Tows extremely well with the provided Equalizer weight distribution hitch. GVWR is 8,300 lbs. Dry weight is 6,500 lbs. Fresh water tank holds 50 gal., Main holding tank 30 gal. and Auxiliary 35 gal.
The outside: Awnings all around. Six 15-watt solar panels on the roof for 90 watts total. The 13,500 BTU original Coleman air conditioner is covered with a Maxxair TuffMaxx Replacement Shroud. Two MaxxFan Deluxe ventilators, one in the front and the other in the rear come with remote controls. These incorporate a vent, fan and rain shield in a single all-in-one unit. This means the vents can be open and operating even when it is raining. The power Ventline shower exhaust fan has a new cover. A KING Jack™ directional over-the-air antenna is mounted near the front. Stone shields protect the front windows and lower front panels. Power jack, four stabilizer jacks, spare tire (mounted underneath), three pole flag holder, four storage compartments (one in bumper another in the tongue and one on both street and curb side of trailer), two AGM battery (size series 27) compartments, two aluminum 30 lb. propane bottles with gauges wired for remote reading and secured by an aluminum cover with a heavy duty padlock. Working door bell, porch, stair and scare lights. New sewer valves and a separate sewer hose storage tube (one hose included in sale). Carlisle ST225/75R15 tires (85 mph speed rating – purchased in 2016) are mounted on American Racing aluminum wheels. Original 4,000 lb. and 3,500 lb. Henchen axles replaced with 4,000 lb. Dexter Dura Torque axles in 2008 (about 5/16” of friction material remaining on the brake pads).

Galley has a 3-way Norcold refrigerator, 4-burner stove and oven, double stainless-steel sink, spice cabinet, and built-in trash basket. Two Nature Pure .5-micron filters provide excellent drinking water in both galley and bathroom (extra cartridges included). One 5-micron whole house water filter is under the bathroom sink (any brand of water filter system that uses standard 9 3/4 x 2 1/2 filter cartridges will fit – one extra filter provided). Built-in electric fireplace with 750-watt heater. The roomy shower comes with an Oxygenics Body Spa shower head. Moen faucets throughout – bath and galley are new. Generously sized built-in laundry basket. Ikea towel holder. Secure shower grab bars throughout the bath. Angle adjustable mirror. Dometic 510 Sealand Traveler china toilet with sprayer – simply the best conventional RV toilet available. Two older Zip Dee folding chairs included (store nicely in the utility closet). A power strip in the utility closet can charge portable vacuums or other items. The broom and dustpan are included.
Cons: The outside aluminum panels show more oxidation in some places than others. However, the clear coat has been removed and the exterior is ready for buffing. A 2014 hail storm left dents on the top of the roof and upper end shell segments. However, the dents are mostly only visible on the front upper end shell segment. The Awnings are in fair to poor condition. The material itself is still in good condition, but the thread in the seams has deteriorated, requiring that they will soon need to be resewn or replaced. The Zip Dee awning hardware works as it should, but some parts show some corrosion. The shower curtain is a bit ratty but anyone handy with a sewing machine should be able to fashion a suitable replacement. The vinyl wall paper in the bathroom shows some puckering in the upper corners. As is typical for this era, much of the plastic trim has cracked, but is still functional.
Pro: Clean and ready to roll as is. Most issues are cosmetic. Many appliances and fixtures have been replaced within the last five years. The last four to five feet of OSB sub-floor in the bedroom was replaced with a synthetic wood composite material in 2007 making that area immune to rot and its performance has since been flawless. The cork flooring is in excellent condition, helps insulate and is warm to the touch when walked on with bare feet even when the outside temperature is below zero. The furnace is very capable and quick to warm the interior. It is ducted into the holding tanks to protect against freezing.
