Exterior

The Airstream’s exterior is two toned. The lower panels are polished aluminium and the upper panels are professionally painted in automotive paint. The upper panels could be stripped and then polished if preferred. It also has various decals from when it featured in the ‘Elvis’ movie highlighting the 1955 American Elvis tour. These can also be removed if preferred. 

Interior

The Bubble has its original and complete mid century interior with a permanent double bed at one end, a kitchen with sink, stove and ice box, a dinette seating area, and a toilet cupboard. The original toilet has been removed. Its interior mainly needs cosmetic updates, painting, refinishing the wood work and new upholstery. Plus new electrical and plumbing systems.

All vintage Airstreams have wear and imperfections, and may require partial or full restoration. Aluminia discloses all known flaws. However, full condition may only be discoverable at the stage when an Airstream is deconstructed for restoration. Buyers should expect that all vintage Airstreams have scratches and dents on their exteriors. Plywood floors have some rot and often needs partial or full replacement. Steel chassis’s sometimes require repair due to rust. Airstreams may leak and require thorough re-sealing. Axles and brakes may need to be replaced. Wiring will generally need to be replaced due to age and it being American 110V. Buyers are responsible for conducting a thorough inspection before buying. Aluminia wants you to be well informed and will assist you in assessing the Airstream you are considering, but Aluminia cannot take responsibility for knowing or advising you of an Airsream’s full condition.
