Here is a rare and
beautiful aircraft-style trailer that is the shortest model that
Streamline made. Lightweight and easy to tow, it still gives you the
safety and stability of dual axles. If you research Streamline trailers
on the Web you will find many comments that it is among the best built
of all the aluminum riveted trailers. They only made this model for a
few years and most examples you will find have the drab anodized
aluminum exteriors that cannot be polished. This shiny aluminum example
could be a real dazzler if polished. And check out that third taillight
on the roof.
The body is in exceptionally nice condition. Virtually pristine
except for two minor scrapes (shown in photos). All the windows have
been recently resealed with Vulkem sealant (the front window has a
small rock ding). I also sealed around the roof vents. There was some
minor leaking around the door, but this has been corrected by sealing
the eyebrow over the door. The belly band is in good condition. The
trailer has 4 new tires (with less than 1,000 miles), the bearings have
been recently serviced, and it is ready to be towed anywhere (takes a
2" ball). A spare tire is also included. It weighs about 3,500 lbs.,
and I found it very easy to tow with my F-250. (Personally, I would not
propose to tow it with a V-6.)
It has the original, unaltered 1966 interior. The floor is solid
(though the carpet is ugly). The cushions are in great shape with
no visible signs of wear. The dinette (comes with extra leaf for table)
makes into a bed that sleeps two, and the side gaucho pulls out to
sleep two more. It has a full kitchen with small gas/electric
refrigerator, and 3-burner range with oven. The ceiling vents (one with
fan) are the original metal vents (with no plastic to degrade and
leak). The interior has not been smoked in or had pets.
The previous owner had the trailer thoroughly gone over before
selling it, and among other things installed a new 6-gallon water
heater, and a new pilotless propane furnace with thermostat. The two
propane tanks are also the new type with upgraded valves. There also is
an awning (not been inspected by me).
This trailer has lots of storage including a huge closet in the
rear. The rear bath features a tub/shower, vanity sink, and RV toilet.
An accordion door slides around on a track for bathroom privacy. Like
most trailers of this vintage it has a black water holding tank, but no
gray water tank.
This trailer is in exceptionally nice condition for its age, but is
41 years old, so you cannot expect perfection. I notice there is some
paint peeling here and there in the interior. The plumbing system and
appliances appear in good order, but have not been tested by me. The
trailer is currently registered, the tags are up-to-date, and I have
the pink slip.
The trailer is sold where is as is. It is for sale to USA residents
only, and cannot be shipped by me anywhere. It must be picked up within
two weeks of the end of the sale (unless other arrangements have been
made in advance). Bidders with no feedback should check in first with
me before bidding. Remember your bid is a contract to buy, do not waste
my time if you are not serious. As with any vintage vehicle it is
recommended that the buyer be experienced and have some ability with
tools. If you're a unskilled klutz, you'd be better off with a
new, modern trailer!
Buyer to pay a $500 deposit within 48 hours of close of sale. Balance to be paid within 7 days by cash or bank check.
