For Sale 1999 Airstream B190 Camper Van – $54,000.00
This is an exceptional example of quality and attention to detail for which Airstream is famous. One of the last to have ever been manufactured, this 19-foot, self-contained and fully operational class B motorhome could quite possibly be called “The World’s Best B190.”
Purchased in 2017 during our search for a motorhome that could safely take us cross-country, camp in any of the National Parks, pull into a normal-sized parking spot and be able to store on our driveway, we discovered this gem. We spent an entire year renovating it from top to bottom. Much of the work was completed by Premier Motorcoach Innovations, a Santa Ana company and leader in their field. An extensive list of the renovations follows. Needless to say, this B190 is not a “project.” It’ll be worth your while to read everything here and look at the pictures to see why we consider this B190 to be one of the world’s best.
We are the third owners. The first owner put 151,000 miles on the vehicle and then installed a new engine. The new engine has 30,799 miles on it. No accidents, no water damage, no airbag deployment. The CARFAX is clean. With the exception of a few months in Florida, this B190 has called California its home.
1999 Airstream B190 on Ford E350 Chassis – 180,799 miles; 30,799 on new engine.

•We were dissatisfied with the couch. With the back up, it was too narrow as a single bed. With the backdown, it was uncomfortable as a double bed. We added a sliding tray, and custom ultra-leather cushions to create a functional and comfortable 72”x46” gaucho bed that easily slides out to transform the couch into a luxurious bed for one or for two. With the sliding queen bed in the loft, this motorhome can easily sleep 2 adults and 3 kids, with seatbelts for everyone!
