Airstream’s bullet-like Overlander is an icon of the 20th century with as much of a cult following today as it did in 1974, when this one rolled off the production line.
The 23-ft-long aluminium trailer is for sale via Aucoot for £169,000 and is currently in the workshop, undergoing a top-to-toe refurb that will update all of its appliances and give its exterior a polish.
Interiors of the midcentury trailer have a Scandi-minimalist flair. The new kitchen features a lightweight engineered terrazzo worktop, poplar cabinetry and a new oven. The bedroom suite is concealed by sliding double doors and has bespoke poplar wardrobes, storage and a double bed.
Gear operated windows, and touch-control steps are original, as is the Zip Dee awning. Meanwhile, the chassis and all-riveted shell and steel undercarriage are fully restored, though the agent says the 8.2-ft-wide caravan is not suitable for life on the road. Instead, the agent is pitching it as a rental or guest accommodation or a glitzy work from home set up with entertainment built-in.
Other new inserts include a hydraulic-operated dining table in the saloon that converts into a second bed, a Corian shower. Specs have also been updated with air conditioning, and thermostat-controlled heating, a new Truma Boiler that holds 14 litres of hot water, plus a 192-litre water storage tank, 240 V mains hook up and USB charging points.
The refurb will be completed at the end of the month. See Aucoot for more.
