Hey Fred - just wanted to say hello as I am a fellow ex-Sonoma County resident. Now live in TX. Was tired of being land poor. I lived in Healdsburg, how about you?

Any comments, insights, suggestions or warnings?
I have had several Private Messages and Emails about this trailer. The following is a copy of my answer to those private messages:

I will say this about her Fiber Stream: it is different from any other Fiber Stream I have seen to date. I think it was a custom order, or a previous owner did a [b]meticulous rebuild of the interior. The floorplan has been modified, reducing the size of the bathroom in order to add a second closet storage space. The shower floor, usually raised to put the plumbing above floor level which limits headroom, has been lowered to align with the trailer's floor. Because the 2nd closet is located where the standard toilet location would be, the toilet has been relocated into the shower stall. The drain plumbing has been installed below floor level the way it is done in a Casita. She says that it's a 1979, but the interior has details that say 1985 (or newer) to me.

The Range has been replaced with a BRAND NEW 3-burner with oven unit. Her refrigerator is original, but in better condition than mine. It has a minor issue with the freezer compartment door which needs to have the hinge spring replaced: this is common. This trailer had an electric only heater at one time, but the previous owner removed it; there is no heater now. There is an AM/FM/Cassette car radio installed in the front overhead cabinet.

The notoriously undersized Fiber Stream standard frame has been reinforced and strengthened. The 4 wheels on the trailer are newer; there are 2 spares that look more original. It has the classic 7" round tail lights that are highly prized by Vintage Trailer enthusiasts, and they are in excellent condition. The trailer has the California PTI registration; I forgot to ask if it has a title... Not required for PTI, but desireable nonetheless.

Now the bad news...
There are no brakes, but you know that if you read the above. My Fiber Stream is equipped with 7" brakes on the front axle. I believe that this could have been a $5000+ trailer if only it had brakes. Adding brakes to it would envolve replacing the axle(s) with shorter ones to make room for the brake hubs.

She has not weighed the trailer herself. She is passing on the information that the previous owner told her. When I took my Fiber Stream to a truck scale and weighed it for myself, it was heavier than the Factory Sales doccumentation declared. This has been an issue with ALL of the trailers mentioned on FiberglassRV, and it is why the staff encourages owners to actually weigh their trailers for themselves.

My bottom line: I believe that Kimberly is being honest in her representation, and $3500 is a fair asking price. I was interested in buying it myself, but I am not prepared to install brakes on it.

SOLD: The FiberStream trailer sold today. I did not have the ability to edit the POST. So I am replying. FYI, according to the title, the trailer is a 1977 not a 79 like I thought.

Thank you everyone!

Hey Kim,

Congratulation on selling your Fiberstream. If you happen to check back in here, any chance of any photos of your 245 towing the Fiberstream?

I'd love to see how that rig looked.
