Just a bit of relief to tweek your Airstream minds....

Okay folks;

On our travels this past weekend (to an Airstream Dinner evening from the Ontario unit) We had a pleasant surprise on the way home - Always keeping a watchful eye for every shinny or dull aluminum object - we just about twisted our heads off and went through our first pair of brakes! at the site of the this Airstream?????

So can you guess the year, where it was made it? there is a little hitch here.

Annie and Marvin you can not play!

I will post the answer shortly - that is if someone has not already guessed.

Avion

That would be an Avion, looks like about a 22', late sixties to early seventies.
Did I win?

I think it looks pretty new. I don't know about those from windows though, are they added on, or original. Either way, it looks like a nice trailer! That would turn my head too

Very deceiving - she looks new but is well into her vintage era.

Seems to be all original - did not have an opportunity to look inside as it was Sunday and the establishment was closed.

Okay I will post the answer at 9:00pm EST

I still say it is an Avion but now change my guess to late 50's.

I think it looks like a Streamline, which was a breakaway from Avion. I spotted one in my neighboring town just last week.

Okay - how many are frantically scanning those "Vintage Trailer Sites"???

We saw one the other day and tried to figure out what it was - up here in Peterborough. I went through every aluminum site possible - and then we came across this one and the mystery was solved.

Just yesterday while I was waiting in the RV wiring shop - I was flipping through the RV trader and low and behold another two for sale! They are coming out of the wood works.....

But in another 40 minutes she will be unvailed....

PS. Big Al - just realized you are from our neck of the woods just a short 2 hour trip - are you in the Ontario Unit??? will you be going to the Winter Dinner in London???

Ok I get it now.
It is a toy trailer.
Very cool, the sawhorses are a great touch.

Now now - I know I have done some neat things with photoshop in past posts but this one is legit! (Except for the black out of the name and replaced with ????) - oops now I'm giving you hints - but I figure you have guessed that it is NOT an AIRSTREAM

Only one so far has only hinted at the era it was made. AVION is not it either.....clocks ticking.....

Prize - Free parking for a week! (On the new Pad!) in the Jewel of the Kawarthas when ever you are in the neighbourhood.
