Not for me, but its very nice! I really enjoy having slides and the space that it provides. If I was in the market for an Airstream, I would certainly take a look at this.

Nice... BUT - - -

I have never been a fan... all that money and all you have is a 24" or so walkway from front to back.. no slides, no room to stretch...

Just my opinion.. They don't float my boat ! [emoticon]
Me either. Not taking away from the nice job on the interior - but where do you hang out in this thing - watch TV, play cards, etc?

NO!
Not impressed, ugly, dated look on a poor layout.
Way, way overpriced.

My wife and I looked through some Airstreams at an rv show a couple of years ago. Holy ****! the cheapest one there was over 79K. They are just way too cramped on the inside. The aisle front to back was no wider than the aisle in the 1963 19ft Airstream we used to have. You're just paying for the name.

I personally don't care for the aesthetic, too foo foo. However, it's a 1975 and was worth fixing up and someone will buy it. I expect most of what's sold today will be in the landfill 45 years from now, no matter how many slides and TVs.

What did the Airstream cost new in 1975?

I think the more appropriate question is what does a new one cost today. The Airstream website lists a brand new 30' Flying cloud with an MSRP between $101,400 and $102,400. I think the price in this ad is probably ball park for an equivalent new one.

(Full disclosure: My TT is an Airstream.)


Agreed, the asking price is very close to that of a new one. No reason to buy an Airstream of this vintage at that price because it doesn't look much different than a new one. And despite all of the new parts and appliances, the new one will still be more modern and reliable, with the same classic Airstream look.

1) won't sleep away from the wife for extended periods so dual twins won't work
2) putting the toilet directly next to 3 surfaces is stupid, from both a comfort and cleanliness perspective.

Otherwise I like it, the storage is huge for that size trailer.

You'd have to be as skinny as a 2x4 to fit on the commode the way it's jammed in to a tight corner.

Most people these days are too fat. Maybe a little discomfort would encourage them to get off their butts, lose some lard.[emoticon]

Very nicely done just not out cup of tea. The wife enjoys her square footage.
