Hi David,

Thank you for sharing those of brother or sister 5075. Looks like a solid candidate to restore, exterior looks straight.

Other than the tub being different, similar rig. Do you have one of the long tube exposed shower heads or no? (we are missing our shower head) Is your fridge a gas/electric or electric only? (I'd like to locate an original for ours.) Where is your water tank/fill located? Up front?

Like to hear more about yours to compare notes.

shower head & fridge in 55 CV

Here are photos of the shower head & arm and the fridge. We think the fridge is electric as this trailer is a park model. Also a photo of the water and gas connections. The toilet is a drop to daylight. There are no holding tanks or fresh water fill. There are lines to go to the small propane tanks sitting up front. We don't know a lot about the history of this trailer other than the 2 stickers on it. The yellow sticker in the front window is a mobile home license from Lexington Co. in SC. Another sticker is Charlotte Mobile Home Sales in Charlotte, NC. ..............David

David,

Thank you for sharing more pics. I saw the shower head and went "Ah Hah". That is different from the other ones I have seen. I am not so sure on being able to find one like that. Are the water connections under the streetside bed? The electric water heater on ours works VERY well. We can turn it off at night and still have hot water in the morning.

The water connections are streetside. Your CV is in way better condition than ours. The original hot water heater with its cloth covered electric cord is still there. However I would not feel safe with any of the electric wiring in the trailer............... David

I re-read your question. Sorry my answer was incomplete. The water connection is under the bed on the streetside as is the water heater. David

Love this stuff!

Jabba, I've drooled over the pics of your rig on Dial's site long before I found my 30' SOTR, and still continue to drool. You have a wonderful trailer. The brochure you found on eBay, one I've never seen before, is a dead ringer. Congrats on such a cool find! It's like being validated to find the model and exact layout of one's early trailer in print on Airstream sales literature.

CanoeStream, your collection of info is fascinating. There are so many mysteries to these older coaches. I wonder if we will ever find all the answers? Was the CV a transition trailer between those like wkerfoot's and A-Merry-Can's '54 Liners and the the SOTRs? or were they concurrently built at some point?

Just curious, Jabba and dix25225, are your trailers each Ohio trailers? I would guess this to be true if an O precedes your S/N. David, thanks for posting your photos. It's always a treat to compare these older 30 footers.

I especially like these 30 footers from the 1950's. Do you any of you have any suggestions about how to locate one that is for sale? My go it find a fixer upper that I can restore.

Watch ebay. craigs list, Tin Can Tourists classifieds, Vintage Airstream List and VAC classifieds. There was a 1954 Liner on Ebay a while back and I found my Double Door Liner on the VAL.

Say, that's a nice one, it still has its jalousie windows on the side they show. Wish they hadn't taken out the interior panels, and blue isn't really my colour, but it does look nice.
