Selling our excellent condition 2008 Airstream Safari SE (75th Anniversary) 25-foot Front Bedroom (FB) trailer. More pics available on request!
Comes with lots of upgrades most Safaris don’t have. Neither too long nor too short, the 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 bought this from the original owners in 2017, who extensively upgraded the trailer (list below) and repaired items when needed, as have we.
Some mid-2000’s trailers had serious corrosion problems, but this one has none, and has lived in a dry climate most of its life. Slight taillight bezel and entry door hinge corrosion has been sealed. Neither we nor the original owners ever hit anything with it. No hail damage, no big dents. There are a few scratches, but otherwise it is like original. No leaks detected for years with one exception (sunroof resealed).
The Special Edition features aluminum interior instead of cloth “mouse fur”, front and rear panoramic windows and more. Check the link for all 2008 Special Edition standard features:
The original owners wanted more, so they did many, many upgrades and had warranty work done at the factory service center. They replaced many original items with better quality ones.
The list follows:
