When I was living in Oregon I bought a 15 foot stick built from the 1950's. It had polished aluminum exterior that looked like stainless steel and it wasn't an Airstream. It's bigger brother was featured in an episode of Malcolm in the Middle where they were staying in a trailer while something was being done to the house. I bought it for $400 since it had been used as a hunting cabin in the winter and all of the interior paneling had become delaminated from the condensation. I was going to redo the interior but had to sell it (for the same $400) due to having to move back to NH to take care of my sick mom. It was really well built. None of the underlying structure had rotted including the floor. If I could get a "stickie" built like that and in good shape, I would consider going back.

I wonder if you had a Silver Stream? Our son lived in one for nine months or so when he was a senior in high school and wanted more independence. It had a pretty good bathroom in it. It was well built, looked like an Airstream, but wasn't. We used to call it the Silver Streak like the train in the Gene Wilder movie.

Semper ubi sub ubi.

there's also the Avion (sp?), as well as the Argosy's which are made by Airstream but have different rounded ends and are generally painted rather than silver.

After starting this post there have been many post on this question and I appreciate all the post as I read them each day. I think we should rule out the older stick built trailers of the 50-70's as they are classics and to purchase one and rebuilt it is truly a labor of love. I would consider a trailer in that era for the pleasure of just redoing one as a personal feeling of accomplishment. Thanks again for posting on this topic.
