Airstream’s bullet-like Overlander is an icon of the 20th century with as much of a cult following today as it had in 1974 when this one rolled off the production line.

For sale via Aucoot for £169,000, the 23-ft-long aluminium trailer has undergone a top-to-toe refurb inside and out, with its aerospace-style aluminium skin freshly polished.

Interiors of the midcentury trailer have been modernised via parquet oak flooring finished with shou sugi ban and white Osmo oil, and a bespoke U-shaped bench is built into the caravan’s curved edge to create seating. Meanwhile, the fully fitted kitchen has lightweight terrazzo worktops and poplar cabinetry – as well as a Gaggenau two-pan 200 series induction hob and electric 400 series oven, and an 80-litre fridge with freezer.

Sliding doors separate the main area from the bedroom, where there’s a full-size double bed and bespoke, lightweight poplar cabinetry. A second sleeping area can be fashioned in the Airstream’s living room via the hydraulic operated dining table, which converts into a 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 8.2-ft-wide caravan is not suitable for life on the road. Instead, it could be guest accommodation, a holiday let or glitzy work from home set up with entertainment built-in.
