1989 Airstream 370LE Motorhome
Very rare, top of the line, Classic Airstream Luxury Coach.
36.5 ft length on Gillig bus chassis with rear duals and tag axle. Original Ford 460 CI Engine with 3 speed automatic transmission; vehicle has less than 26,000 miles on chassis. This coach is in very good condition stem to stern... no smoking and no pets. If you're an "Airstreamer" this is the one you've always wanted.
The coach is exceptionally clean throughout... has been professionally shampooed, including seating, carpets and headliner. The front wooden mini-blinds have been ultrasonically cleaned and restrung... includes all new "like original" side bolsters.
The rear bed and bath mini-blinds are new and custom made for exact fit. All curtains have been professionally cleaned and pressed, are in excellent condition and look great. Bedroom features a walk around Queen, floor safe in closet and gas furnace.
The living room upholstery is distinctive and is in "as new" condition, it has the classic Airstream ship's lamp and aircraft lighting, swivel chairs and an automatic push-button glide-out sofa sleeper with storage bin underneath. Storage bin needs new guides.
Cabinetry and woodwork is solid oak throughout and in superb condition, its doubtful you''ll ever find better. Galley floor is oak planking, again, very good condition, as are all the Corian surfaces: countertops, dining table and cocktail table.
We have been very attentive to repair and upkeep on this unit sparing no expense for both comfort, safety and reliability. A partial list of improvements includes: two brand new Hankook steering tires (less than 200 miles), newer Michelin Duals in rear, new air bags, new Bendix calipers/pads on rear, new emergency brake, braking system flush and master cylinder rebuild, new fan clutch, new Lestek marine alternator and voltage regulator (one spare Lestek rebuild unit also), radiator/cooling system flush, new serpentine belts, carburetor rebuilt, hydraulic leveling system rebuilt, complete Cummins Onan service (runs real good) and, undoubtedly, more that I've forgotten.
Coach has been totally cleaned-up and looks great, and includes the aforementioned items along with new domestic water pump, Thetford slide valve replaced, new hoses, fresh electronics board for the Dometic (also one spare), newer batteries both chassis and coach (three years old), new Coleman Mach III (?) rear A/C and more minor items.
The Univolt converter/inverter was working fine, but last time out started humming and seems to have died. The shower is okay, and haven't had time to do anything with it.
We drove the unit from Sacramento to Nebraska before most any of the improvements were made (except new alternator and brakes) and it cruised in like a champ on I-80 through the Sierra's as well as the ranges between Reno and Cheyenne. It averaged between 8-10 miles per gallon at 60 mph on a steady throttle.
The reason we are selling this unit is lack of use. We bought our 370 expecting to keep it forever, but we subsequently discovered the Black Hills and have decided we simply cannot justify keeping the unit any longer and not using it to the extent it should be.
Before purchasing it, we had looked at several late model "bread box" motorhomes in the $70K - $90K range. After inspecting them critically, it became clearly evident the 370LE is in a class by itself... there really wasn't much to think about. We bought it.
Fred and others tell us it should easily sell in the upper thirties or forties, which is less than our break even point, but we feel it suits our sentiments to sell it to someone who has a love of these units and can enjoy it to the fullest.
As you probably know, there were only a handful of 370LE ever made. It is truly unique in the Airstream family and perhaps the rarest of all Classics. You'll be in a rare group.
