This 1969 Airstream is a guest cabin conversion that was renovated by the current owner.
Right now it’s in Austin, Texas. The current owner was using it on his property as a rental.
Unfortunately, the city determined that it is not allowable to be used as a rental on the current property, so that’s why it’s for sale right now.
The asking price was $22,000 USD. Last year alone, according to the Craigslist ad (expired), he was able to earn more than $25,000 in rental income from it. And so far this year, he’s already up to $8,000 in rental income. It’s too bad the city is forcing him to stop, isn’t it?
But it can be a great opportunity for someone to buy it who has the money. It seems like it’s ready to move into and use just like you would a custom built tiny house. For around $22k, that seems like a pretty fair deal to me! (Update: sold!)
Remodeled 1969 Airstream Cabin on Wheels
“I bought and remodeled a 1969 Airstream that I’ve been using for short-term rental. The Airstream earned more than $25,000 in rental fees last year and has received almost $8,000 already this year (Documentation regarding income is available upon request.) That said, the City of Austin has determined the Airstream can no longer be used for rental. Therefore, I need to sell it.
The Airstream has a custom bed that is longer than a normal bed and is curved so that it is more narrow than a Queen-sized bed. The sale includes custom sheets made for the bed.
Also the plumbing and electrical for the Airstream has been upgraded. The good news is that the toilet is not the small original one, it’s a real residential one that works well. The bad news is that the holding tank has been removed, so the Airstream isn’t ready to go camping and hold waste.
The air-conditioner works great! Even in the hottest of Texas heat the trailer remains cool.
The windows have had leaks and have been fixed.
The original 1969 owners manual is intact and included.
Cloth wheel covers and jacks come with the trailer.
The floor has been replaced.
A custom table/desk is included in the sale as are curtains, mirror, daybed cover, vintage table and chairs, refrigerator, plates, cups — all goes! See photos.
You probably have questions I’ve not addressed here. If so I’m glad to answer your questions.
Thanks for looking. This is a gem, and I’m really sad to have to let it go. It’s been a real money-maker for me.”
