1955 Airlight on Ebay

Check this one - apparently only made for one year - then the company became El Rey. Nice example and rare side door as they had rear doors. It's Ebay item number: 35b702ac42

The claim is that this is the only side door known. I doubt that. I am pretty sure I have seen photos of one or two other side door Airlights (but they didn't have windows in the sides of the end caps like this one). This Airlight is still is a very rare trailer in any case and the condition does look very nice in the photos.

And while it is perhaps less "unique" without the rear door, it is more usable with the side door, so to me this version would be more desireable. Others opinions on that will differ, I'm sure. Some may prefer the quirkiness of a rear door.

It is not an Airstream as the seller states...
