1990 Airstream Classic 250 Motorhome Exhibit "C"

1990 Airstream Classic Motorhome 250 (C)

1990 Airstream Classic 250 Motorhome

Extremely rare 25 foot classic motor home. It is truly one of a kind and is in beautiful condition. Well over $100,000 invested in unit since 2008. You will not find one in better condition! This motor home was ordered in March of 1990 and it was delivered in June of 1990. The dealer stated at the time there were only fifteen of these units built in 1990. Airstream stopped making "Classic" (aluminum outer body) motor homes in 1996. Airstream built the 250 model for 4 years from 1990 until 1993. It is believed that only 25 units were built during those years, and this is one of the last 12 remaining.

This unit is a great size. It is small enough to navigate cities. Find two parking spaces, and you are there. Big enough to live in and take extended trips. If you feel the need to tow an extra vehicle, it is set up for that. It has towed a Suzuki Sidekick during the last 2 years for over 10,000 miles without any problems and no noticeable increase in gas costs.

Below is an annotated version of the original Standard Features list. At the bottom of the column is additional information about the extras added to the original unit and modifications over time. Though the unit has traveled just over 200,000 wonderful miles, all restorations and major work has been done in the last 25,000 miles and it has always been well maintained. In 2007, (22,000 miles ago) major work was done including a new engine and related components, a new torque converter and the transmission was rebuilt.

From 2008 until 2011, it had a complete restoration of the exterior (new paint, rust removed, etc.) and interior (new flooring, shower surround, etc.) From 2011 until spring of 2014 it has had other substantial restoration improvements such as new felt and rubber around all windows, new window curtains, new audio-visual and navigation system, and new 32” TV. In the winters of 2013 and 2014 a complete mechanical review was done which included a new ECM, alternator, wiring, batteries, and tires. Everything was gone over and if needed, it was replaced. So it runs like new!

*When this unit was for sale in February of 2016, it had an asking price of $39,900.*
