Bozeman, MT 2008, a Curtis Wright with a vintage pickup. Neat set up.

I'm looking right now

yThat combo is great. I am looking for a Vintage tow Veh. everyday. It looks like a new Duramax would be cheaper.

Here's a different view of the CW at Bozeman.

Bring the Curtis Wright and we would be happy to let you exhibit it as an "exhibition" trailer since it isn't an Airstream and we couldn't put it into competition with the Airstreams onsite at an "Airstream only" event, but your trailer has great historical significance for Airstream enthusiasts. Whatever you decide is great with us and we would look forward to seeing you.

Hi GStephens: My understanding from talking to staff at WBCCI HQ in Jackson Center a few years ago is that all Curtis-Wright trailers qualify their owners to become full WBCCI members because their trailers were designed by Wally after WW II before he revived Airstream in Spring 1947. There would be no need to treat a Curtis-Wright any different than any Airstream, as shown by the Curtis-Wright Clipper that attended the WBCCI International Rally in Bozeman, MT this past summer. Although Curtis-Wright trailers qualify their owners for membership, that privilege was lost when Curtis-Wright was liquidated in April 1949 and its assets were purchased by new owners who incorporated Silver Streak Trailers. That's one step too far removed from Wally, so ownership of a Silver Streak trailer does not qualify one for WBCCI membership. I hope this clarifies things a bit.

I know that CW trailer participated in the Concours d'elegance and won high recognition. I don't recall if it won "Best Tow Vehicle/Trailer Combo" or not, I think it did - or it came in second to the 1937 Cadillac/1963+/- Tradewind Combo. Both were FANTASTIC and well deserving!

Thank you for the information. I was aware of Wally's link to Curtis Wright, but not aware that the Curtis Wright qualified for the WBCCI and the Vintage Airstream Club membership. I was under the impression that only units manufctured by Airstream were approved for club membership and for inclusion in judging events. Again, thank you so much.

There you have it Melody Ranch staight from the past President of the VAC. Bring either of your trailers to the Texas Vintage Rally and they will both be eligible to be included in all aspects of the rally including the judging events. I am most greatful that this issue was cleared up at this early date and didn't arise after the rally started. That would have been so embarrasing for me personally. Again, thank you Shari and thanks to Pee Wee for his part in bringing this issue up through the posting of his pictures.

Thanks to Fred too, as VAC Historian he brought this up directly w/WBCCI long before it came up in Bozeman...

Hi neighbor.
Thanks for the tip on the oven. Get the "Silver Belly" road ready and you can go with us. We are leaving on Thursday of that week. I need to get it in gear and get that oven polished and put in. See you around the hardware store. Sound like there is going to be alot of fun great trailers to compete with this year. See you around.

Again, another great picture.

A quick question, does your awning just slide into the rail above the door, and do you roll this up and remove for transport? I have a rail with no other mechanical arms or hardware and I am thinking of fabing a similar type of awning. Is this a "for sale" item somewhere or did you make it yourself?
Ok, a couple of quick questions. Sorry to get off subject.
Thanks
Adam

Adam,

I don't know. The owner will have to answer this. I just took the pics. Ask Fred!

47WeeWind, I do thank you Fred and am so sorry for the oversight. For some reason, I thought Shari posted both the information in her post and that of yours, which was not the case.

Fred, let me take this opportunity to thank you not only for this bit of wisdom, but for the many, many things you've done over the years to advance our understanding of the history of our Airstreams and your contributions to the VAC in general.

I wish we could offer this rally at some other time of the year so that you, Shari and others might be better be able to attend, but this is the only time of year that we can do this for a variety of reasons. Perhaps someday we can entice you to get your Airstream out of storage in late January and head this way for one of our Texas Vintage Rallies. I had so hoped to have both you and Pee Wee here at the same time, but it was not to be.

GStephens
