Too many extras to detail including complete documentation, owner’s manuals etc. and spare parts. We lived in this coach this past winter in the Seattle area with temperatures in the twenties and were warm and comfortable. Has optional front heater (new).

This is a very nice Airstream updated but maintained in the spirit of its classic heritage. At virtually every stop, people respond very favorable to this unit. While it has been meticulously updated and maintained, it is 24 years old and requires a certain amount of attention from time to time. We are selling the coach and using time shares our son has provided for us to winter over in the future.
