Don't take this the wrong way - but you evidently don't pay attention to your most active Moderator - do you?

TXiceman owns a 1979 Silver Streak. I have seen photos and it is a very nice looking trailer.

BTW- He was the one person who rallied to get the "Vintage RV Owner" tag in place.

For what ever it's worth, the owner of this site "Andy R", owns a 1961 Airstream Bambi trailer.

When we started the vintage forum, an age was picked and set at 20 years old to qualify.

Here are some photos

The other Moderator on this forum, Don W5IT, worked at an RV dealer and has plenty of experience with older trailers as well.

Guarantee TXiceman's rig is vintage, and one of the nicest Silver Streaks you will ever see and a lot of history to go with it.

Heck, Even if the age limit was 25 years I would still qualify

Wow, I guess that I am a Vintage RVer since we have been RVing since 1984

MM, Sure go ahead.
I like the way my 83 outperforms most of the newer RVs along with the state of the art electronics installed....
The 454 with less than 35,000 with all of the "Bolt on" simply pulls all of the hills with ease.
New air conditioners (Coleman 13,500 P.S and a Polar cub 8100) also allow the use of 30 amp hookups, Everything on the RV can be turned on with the 30 amps with power to spare
