Looks like a mobile burger stand to me.

Interesting door-in-a-door for ventilation.

1964 19' Globtrotter

I'd say it originally was a 1964 19' Globtrotter because it has 5 panel end caps (first used in 1964) and the "door within a door" (last used in 1964). I say Globetrotter because it looks to be about 19' long. I am guessing it was remodeled into a mobile kitchen at some point, because some of the cabinets look different than typical 1964 vintage cabinets, yet the window arrangement is correct for a '64 Globetrotter.

I agree it's a '64, and IIRC, the Globetrotter was one of the few that had a backwards door (opened to the front) available. The description says it is 18 ft long, if that is correct, wouldn't that be a Caravelle? Of course, if they are measuring body only, it would make it 21ft, wouldn't that be a Safari? This is, of course, assuming (a dangerous thing) the person listing it knows how to measure the trailer, and knows how to read a tape measure.

At least we know there are options for those who don't want to polish!

As absolutely phenomenal of a paintjob as that is... I'd bet $1000 the next owner takes a picture or two - and promptly strips it back to aluminum. Looks like the body is in fantastic shape.

Maybe. Remember, Bondo is the painted Airstream owner's best friend.

I think I saw this on e-bay back in October or November of last year. There was even a thread started on it, wasn't there?

I agree, it look's just like our trailer...a '64 GT, although there are several new access panels on the exterior to support the equipment inside.

My guess is it's one of those shrink-wrap coverings that you see on cars & buses...could be wrong, but it could be. In that case, all you gotta do is peel it off! It is kinda cute...
