New here with vintage trailer

I bought this old trailer a couple of years ago and after some work the wife and I have started using it. Its a 1964 Streamline and so far we have been to the Indiana Dunes, and Meramac State park in MO. But we have many more trips planned.

Here is a pic from Meramac State park last week.



I didn't know what I was getting into when I bought it. I met the seller at a truckstop and of coarse he said everything worked. Yea, right. Well I didn't have to replace the stove.

But we wanted something a little different, and its not hard to spot.

We had a 79 Silver Streak. Now have the 89 Avion. Have you found Tom pattersons website for the Streamlines and Silver Streaks?

It looks better in the pic than up close. It has hail damage on the roof and a few wrinkles, but the inside looks good and it doesn't leak. I guess it looks ok for being in its mid 40's. This is our first camper and I wanted something a little different and not to expensive. I now of coarse have spent more on it than I could ever sell it for, but it has a lot of new parts and hopefully we won't have much trouble with it. So far it has towed well and we have had no problems.

We will probably take a few more short trips in the next few months, and then we plan on taking in to south Florida in January. We live outside St. Louis so it will be a long trip for us.

Here is a pic looking toward the back. With all the metal, it definatly is like a tin can. But less to rot.



The wife went a little wild on the colors, but that, and the fact that she has a bathroom makes her happy.

Put some photos and description on the Classified section here. Tin Can Tourist also has a classified section. You can also find a sister sire to this one at Airstream Trailer & Motorhome Owners Community for Ai Streams and there is an Air Stream yahoo group.

Thanks everyone. We really enjoy the trailer, and since we put a lot of work in it, it is special to us. I had to replace part of the floor by the front door, and part under the old water tank. I replaced the old water tank, I assume it leaked due to the fact that the plumbing was unhooked to it and the floor was soft under it.

We ended up replacing the water tank, hot water heater, fridge, plumbing, most of the electric, adding a charger/controller, A/C, flooring, mattresses, drapes, wheels, tires, battery, coupler, toilet, and we polished it up a bit. There are probably a few things I missed. And we will probably add a microwave.

We are still happy with our purchase. And I really didn't believe the seller anyway. I figured I was going to end up going thru whatever we bought anyway.

Yes, but now you know what you have. Buying anything used is a crap shoot, and sounds like you did all right with this one.
