If anyone is looking for it, they spell it "fibrecore."

I'm thinking it doesn't look like a Fiberstream clone - at least from the ones I'm looking at. I say that because the Fiberstream had pretty much straight walls, and this one has angled walls, so I believe it would not have been from the Fiberstream molds.

They also mention that the company (Fibrecore) started in 1984 (which would be two years before Fiberstream went out of business).

Here's a photo from their website of a tandem axle trailer:

www.fibrecore.com

They're using a honeycombed, plastic type core, which many boatbuilders have moved to (from traditional balsa wood core). Gelcoating inside and out (I guess they are counting on the coring for insulation).

Interesting that they spell "fibre" the Canadian or British way in their name (although not elsewhere on the site).

The motorcycle trailer is cute in a teardroppish way:

I can't believe I missed this thread. I'm so glad it popped up again. Frederick, very much for the great history of Fiber Stream.

Our is a 1979 and I'm doing a major interior remodel, trying to keep everything as close to the original floor plan as possible. Exterior - flipped axle, welded reinforcing beams to frame, new rear bumper. When completed will post before and afters, and comments on what I'd do differently if I hadn't already done it........

Sorry to be so lazy, but does anyone know any of the history of my trailer? It is unique in that the tongue was extended to make a motorcycle carrier. We know the previous owners but not the ones before them. Any still members? Any info on the trailer greatly appreciated.

Thanks Much,

Link to for sale post by Ron Wrighton, an earlier owner of your trailer. He's the guy who extended the front.

a company called fibercore began in 1986.
they make a concession trailer that looks a lot like fiberstream.

[b]did said employee move to ohio and start fibercore?
The Fiber Stream trailer was seamlessly molded in one piece. The Fibrecore trailer's body is assembled in at least 5 pieces, not counting the doors/awnings. Looks to me like there is a front end-cap, a rear end-cap, flat sides, and a separate roof section.

This kind if name confusion was likely the marketing plan of the builder of the Fiber Stream, who worked from the name recognition of Airstream. But Fibrecore is totally different.
Any similarities in appearance are mere coincidence.

Last known information on the manufacturer of Fiber Stream trailers:
(as of 28 MAY 1986)

Fiber Stream Company, Carolyn E. Lenard, owner
14838-A Boyle Avenue
Fontana, California 92335
(714) 823-1332

Carolyn ran the office and did all of the paper work. Her husband David, along with one other man assembled the trailers.
The frames were welded up and the bodies were molded off site. (Those functions were out-sourced.)

Thank you Rebecca Rusk for providing this information.

I just picked up my 86' Fiberstream from a lovely man, Alan, who held on to it for me since September- until I made the trip! I was a Trillium owner- and had to sadly sell it (financial reasons.) Now, I am a PROUD owner of my Fiberstream!! I'm located in the Poconos, PA. I know that the trailer was in storage for over 10 years by the previous owner from Southern California. I've attached a picture w/me in the Redwoods last week!
