Yes, Yes, thank you very much. I'm an oldie nut myself. The older the better. Is that wrong for a youngish like me? Wife thinks there are some wires crossed some where. I've been after this Ultra Coach front wheel drive unit for a year now. No title and needs a new engine but she is complete. Not many of those built either which is what is fueling my obsession. I would sell everything I own except my house and 84 Cj for the Ultra...

We had a 1979 Silver Streak and there is still a small SS chapter in the Houston area. A friend just sold his 1974 Silver Streak. Ther eis also a Streamline club still operating in Texas.

We now have a 1989 Avion (silver), that is 34'-11" long. Great old coaches. Bynam marketed the A/S heavily and they are still made, but, the folks with silver trailers (except for the A/S owners) know that the A/S is the bottom of the silver trailer heap.

poppatello,
There is something about the craftsmanship and style of vintage vehicles that always leaves me wanting to learn more about them. It just hits a soft spot in my thick old gearhead I guess.

TXiceman,
Agree that Airstream had better marketing then most. Many other builders produced stronger units with high quality materials, probably what caused them to go under. During my research found Silver Streak offered a lifetime warranty on all products they built. Try and find that now days.

That Streamline Travel Car belongs to Paul Freeman in Midway City, CA. It is a 1964. There is at least one other of that year in the LA area, owned by a Robert Madrigal.

Tom,
Welcome to irv2!
It is an honor and a privilege to meet you here on this forum.
Thank you so much for the work you are doing to keep track of and register these rare old gems. Yes, you are correct, the gentlemen's name I meet was Paul. Not sure if you saw the right up on my blog about meeting him.
Any relation to James Patterson of Silver Streak trailer company?

Howdy Tom. Glad you finally wandered over to iRV2. Susan still talks about your old Streamline Travel Coach. Yours is a 1965 as I remember.

If you want to see more old Streamlines and Silver Streaks, check out Tom's website....
Toms' Web Page

There is a photo of his coach and Mustang...same years.

No relation whatsoever. Just happen to have the same last name.

That motorhome is awesome. Someone took some great care of it. I bet they have a lot of people that question them at length about it. Good find and thanks for sharing.

Wow!
That's the coolest motor home I've ever seen.
I'd choose one of those over a Prevost any day!

But I'll bet they're a LOT harder to find...

There is a lot of really neat features in these older RVs. Kinda' makes you wonder what happened to the RV designers. These are the very reason we switched over to the vintage silver trailer.

People are amazed at the quality and storage in our 1989 34' Avion.
