Award Winning and featured in Old Navy ads - 1957 Airstream Custom - 26" (23' foot body + 3 ft tongue) If you have been waiting for a "perfect" original vintage Airstream that is not a project or a money draining remodel, here it is. This Airstream is a rare, mint, one-of-a-kind 1957 Custom Model, purchased by the original owners from the Airstream Factory in Norwalk, California.

Featured in Sunset Magazine and was awarded best All-Original Trailer in 2016 at Mid-Century Modern Week in Palm Springs.

Airstream Dual Axle Trailer ID Number: #6929

An actual "Barn Find," this trailer sat unused and stored in a barn in Missouri for almost 50 years. In 2013, it was purchased out of the estate from the second owners. With only the curtains and vinyl flooring requiring replacement, the interior of the trailer is otherwise unrestored and in its original condition. And - very important for most people - the mattresses were changed to new mattresses and were custom made to fold out from two twin bed into one giant KING SIZE BED!

Airstreams from the 1950s have very desirable qualities: Wood interiors, porcelain sinks, a porcelain toilet, metal hardware, and custom made furniture. Later models of Airstreams started creating molded plastic interiors, which crack and yellow. With classic mid-century modern lines, atomic light fixtures and hardware, the trailer is a true time-capsule - even the original kitchen clock We have carefully and professionally restored or maintained every detail of the trailer to perfect working condition, and ready for comfortable camping and traveling on the day you bring it home. No part of the trailer has been altered, torn out or ruined. The original wood cabinetry is in place. The body is straight and the skin is great.

There are very few minor dents or scratches truly stunning condition for its age. This trailer is CAMP READY and it was factory designed especially for easy, safe towing and extended trips.

It weighs 3170 lbs., and the rare dual axle is an important safety feature and makes for smother and easier towing. The exterior plug has been re-wired and updated, so it can plug into any regular campground outlet. It also has an adaptor so that you can plug it in at home with an extension cord. It has a super desirable floor plan with shower, tub, large kitchen and lots of closet space. Again, the two twins slide out and fold down into a huge (larger than a king) bed that easily sleeps two adults and two children. The original click-clack sofa folds out to a second bed, and sleeps 2. Because it was designed for long journeys it and has two large propane tanks; an upgraded extra large fridge; and a lot of storage including two spacious full-length closets, one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom.

It has also been featured at events and photo shoots due its historic value and showstopping looks. It was Featured in Sunset Magazine and was awarded best All-Original Trailer in 2016 at Mid-Century Modern Week in Palm Springs. The photos show accessories, bedding and decor, which is removable and not included. (The bedroom bench cushions underneath are upholstered in gray.) It is currently stored. It is ready for shows or to simply enjoy. Available for pick up in College Station, TX.

A highly-collectible time capsule. It has been professionally appraised many times. The last appraisal was in 2018 for $46,500 by Polk Associates - a well known Airstream Appraiser and Show Judge. I would estimate today's value to be closer to $69,000+
