Question 1970's silver streak

Looking for info re: a 1972-1973 Silver Streak. A friend said I could have it. I'm sure it needs updating. Wondered what it would cost to fix-er-up? Any war-stories on remodeling would be appreciated! Also, any links that are good would be useful.

njbamboo, check out for restoration resources that can apply to many vintage trailers, not just Airstreams. Also check out the search feature on these forums for answers to a lot of your questions. may have some of the bits and pieces you'll need. What a good friend to give you a Silver Streak - good luck!

You could check out Tom Patterson's website, he has a whole section devoted to Silver Streaks.
You can find it here.

This is also the site with the archives of the Vintage Airstream Club mailing lists, just in case that is of interest to anyone who didn't know.

No, Silver Streak was a separate company, although one of their managers was hired from Airstream. They never built a lot of trailers, but the folks who have think very highly of them.
