Professionally restored and rebuilt for the discriminating trailerite. New, never camped in, stored in a climate-controlled building. Don't wait a year or more to get an Airstream restored; this one is available immediately. Styled with a 1950's martini/wine bar, the current owners wanted to capture a mid-century feeling with modern amenities.

This 1959 24 ft Airstream Tradewind we call Karludi is truly a one-OF-A-KIND piece of art. Designed and crafted by Vintage Base Camp in Louisville, KY. The original footprint was used to create a sleek mid-century art deco style that includes all modern, high-end amenities. Karludi has never been camped in. It has been stored in a climate-controlled building since its completion in the fall of 2019. She was featured in The Vintage Camper Trailers Magazine. She was recently appraised by Polk and Associates, receiving outstanding ratings in all categories. With a clear Indiana title, this amazing girl is being offered up for new ownership for $170,000.
