Price Reduced! Comes with lots of upgrades most Safaris don’t have. Neither too long nor too short, this very popular Safari (now called Flying Cloud and having an MSRP in the $85,000+ range) 25’ Front Bed queen can be hard to find. Clear title (no salvage title problems). Once you have one, you’ll want to keep it. This Special Edition was positioned between the standard Safari and the International trim lines in celebration of Airstream’s 75th anniversary. 2008 was the last year for the convenient double sink. We are the original owners and have extensively upgraded the trailer (list below) and repaired items when needed. It is time for a change, partially dictated by age, so we will part with our Airstream with sadness.
Some mid-2000’s trailers had serious corrosion problems, but this one has always been in a very dry climate. Slight taillight bezel and entry door hinge corrosion has been sealed. We never hit anything with it. No hail damage, no dents. There are a few scratches, but otherwise like original. No leaks detected for years with one exception (sunroof resealed).
The Special Edition features aluminum interior instead of cloth “mouse fur”, front are rear Panoramic windows and more. Check the link for all 2008 Special Edition standard features: https://www.airstream.com/wp-content/uploads/archive/98f1a6f07898fd42.pdf
We wanted more, so we did many, many upgrades and had our warranty work done at the factory service center. We replaced many original items with better quality ones.
