Trailer Time

Ok so Mr Living Vintage and I bought this trailer 3 years ago we got a lot of use out of it the first summer as out his parents had bought a not so habitable lake place (which has since been torn down and replaced with a lovely new cabin) so we parked our camper at the lake and used that summer on weekends as our cabin on the lake.  It is a 1969 Silverstreak  we have have plans to fix it up but money has been tight so we haven't done as much as I would like yet.  It needs some holes patched, new skylight, new plumbing, new backsplash, new flooring in the back and a really good airing out.  I have bought some lovely atomic print barkcloth fabric to make new curtains but am afraid make and hang as the fabric was not cheap and am waiting for it to be a bit more sealed from water and mice before hanging.  Anyway here is the exterior for now I don't have any interior pictures right now but will post some later.




This last one is my 59 wagon that I think would be perfect for pulling the Silverstreak.

  3. What a great package, your car and trailer! How about a camping weekend some where midway this summer? We'll be in our '50 Chevy (or my '50 Ford) and our '67 Scotty Sportsman.

  5. BoPeep that would be fun but not sure we can fund those new tires this year. So may not be able to travel with camper. But I definetly love the idea.
