Many sellers of this special camper Airstream Westfalia say there are only 250 units brought into North America.
I propose you the 251th Westy model from Europe, where it’s badged as Sprinter James Cook.

This camper van turned 25 years old few weeks ago and it can be imported into the US under the 25 years rule (antique car imports). For you it means: low import tax, nothing to change for homologation and no emission control depending on the state.

I’ll back in Mexico in few weeks to continue a family road trip with my camper. I’ll ship this sprinter to Veracruz, Mexico and the plan is to move it in the north of Mexico. It will be available in June or July 2021. We could meet at one of the main city between Mexico and Texas to end the deal (ie: Brownsville/ Matamoros, McAllen/Reynosa, Laredo/ Nuevo Laredo). The deal should be done on the Mexican side as due to Covid border restriction, I can’t cross the border (but US nationals can). Payment details will be agreed (no cash transaction).

In details :
