they looked for head room, storage space, more living space in the same length of trailer. They wanted a bath in the rear, with a small tub and shower. They wanted twin beds, full self-containment, as large a "front room" entertaining area as possible.
Today they will admit only that they could use more work space in the kitchen . . . but they would not sacrifice living area to get it. They would also like the newer refrigerators that come with today's trailers; they might like air conditioning.
So far the Wrights have themselves added to the trailer only extra drawers in some of the closets, two shelves in a dish cupboard (to divide space). They had the factory install nylon carpet. At one point during the last seven years they changed the yellow and orange appoint ments inside to blue and green "just for a change." But the drapes were neutral and they did not need to change these. And in any future trailer they would have the same light woodwork for a feeling of spaciousness.
The Wrights tow their Boles with a Chevy pickup. They are sold on aircraft construction because of its strength and lighter weight. He feels the riveted aluminum construction stands up to vibration and road strain better than would construction involving screws in wood. And their trailer has traveled 20,000

miles a year for seven years without structural failure.
In sum, they find their trailer a pleasure to tow and very comfortable to live in either summer or winter. They've had no serious problems but service at the factory has been good. So they would buy the same trailer again; if they become full time trailerists they would buy (probably) a 31-footer for still more room. But it would still be Boles Aero space they'd be buying; if they couldn't have it, they stoutly declare that they would go back to wood construction for the square sides.
The Wright enthusiasm for their trailer probably comes through most in their final statement: "One satisfaction with owning a first-line trailer is the many people you get acquainted with who ask to see your trailer. We always proudly consent to a tour."

Silver Streak

And since they are full time trailerists, when they looked for their present trailer they wanted, in their own words: "one that was livable; no maintenance, yet ease of towing." They looked for . . . the word is their own . . . "beautiful" lines and, "Oh, yes," the exterior lines of the trailer had much to do with their decision. Despite their immediate past experience with a Silver Streak, the Sumrows did not limit their

looking to that line. They also tried a Boles Aero Zenith before they made their decision, coming back to the Silver Streak on final vote. It offered, they say, the livability they wanted, too . . . adequate living room without having to tow a 35foot trailer, an eye-level oven, large refrigerator, twin beds, tub, shower . . . even a glass shower enclosure. They chose their decor to suit their taste before the unit was built. And they say, simply, of the trailer today: "It is our home, as well as a trailering (vehicle)." Apparently they consider it a fine home. Today they can't think of any way the beds could be improved; with the twin bed arrangement one of them can go to bed early, the other later and they both find the situation comfortable. They do wish there were more work area, more counter space. But the bath is plenty large, they say, and all storage is adequate for two of them. They have a big built-in trunk for outside storage, find everything convenient where and when they want it. The Sumrows did have extra overhead cabinets built in over the left living room window. What is the strongest advantage an aircraft type trailer has over a conventional one, we asked Bill Sumrow, just as we had asked the rest. His answer to this question was the most direct we received: "Basic design." "However," he added, "you cannot find the high quality that is built into the Silver Streak in any
