1971 Airstream Overlander Outfitted With Modern Touches

Original built in 1971, this Airstream Overlander has gone through an extensive professional restoration process to bring it up to modern standards.

Priced at $39,000 on Airstream Classifieds, it doesn’t look like the seller enticed any buyers as of yet.

The wheels are the dead giveaway that this 27-footer isn’t a recent model.

Modern amenities like a 15,000 BTU air conditioner and flushable toilet make for easy(er) living. And new wheel bearings, brakes, and tires provide for safe towing.
