Military Airstream?...worth chasing

Hi guys....my wife and I just bought our first AS...we picked up a 74 31' Sovereign...in "as found" state.....but as you know how it goes..you buy something, and the next thing you know...your looking everywhere to spot others like it...well i did spot another(s) AS near my home....its an Argosy, but its white with wording "US Navy"...its white with blue lettering and blue strip running around the center of the body...the trailer has no windows in it...i mean none fitted from new...solid body....is it worth chasing up?...i thought it was kinda cool looking!...i can snap a pic of it...its parked in a back yard in a allayway

No windows? It's probably an experimental submarine.

Military has used airstream for command and control and rest quarters for four star cinc/theather commanders while they are on board a cargo airplane for years. It's called the silver bullet and I have seen them used. They have a great communications setup and very nice on the inside.

Ours has a US Navy decal on it but that's because we both retired from the Navy.

That one could be a project for someone wanting to start with a clean slate, no windows and probably no rv furnishings. I wonder if it has any historical significance.

Maybe a great opportunity!

Compared to Civilian AS it probably is stronger, leaks less and has a bilge pump.

Speaking of bilge... I'll stop there..
