An American icon and one you rarely see. An Airstream Motor Home, yes that is right, a motor home built by Airstream in the traditional Airstream quality and style. Airstream built a few of these in the 80's and now you have the chance to own one of these beauties. I guarantee it is a real head turner as you drive down the highway. People will stop to ask about it wherever you camp. I will be giving the new owner an original magazine advertisement from 1982 which features this motor home.

Description: The motor home is all aluminum, riveted together with double wall, heavily insulated construction. It is virtually sound proof and a dream to camp in whether you stop for a night at a truck stop or a month at a campground, your neighbor’s will not be bothering you with their noise. The interior is natural wood paneling. The Airstream styling with surrounding windows gives a wide open feel to the interior. The windows are all insulated glass.
