Yes, it would be worth something to part out. I am looking for two windows.

I did not mean to suggest that it should be parted out, just that if it is, I could use some parts.

It is always better to save it.

California can be extremely greedy when it comes to licensing/transfering. Please physically touch the title and make sure it's close to what this trailer is. I almost made a very big mistake-purchasing without a title in Wa. State. Turns out I would have had to put the rig up for public auction and if I were the high bidder, the trailer was mine...and this was after I would have paid for it. Check with the local DMV and save yourself worry and trouble. VK

Doorgunner-

I love it! Too bad it is so far away. Cruiser or Overland. 1955- 1957? As mentioned the rear stack is a mystery and I was hoping interior photos would have solved that mystery. A CA unit for sure. A fair price to both parties would be $200 - $500 max. Assume frame and axles need replacing, there is no interior, plumbing or electrical. What you do have is a salvagable shell. Does appear to have dents and errosion. As noted no windows and I would bet there are current residents which will require inner panel removal, and all new insulation etc. What a great restoration. I would buy it!

Let me know what you decide.

I think I would charge the owners $500 to tow it away.

Seriously, I need a roof vent that looks exactly like the one on the back of that trailer. The prior owner of my 1953 knocked one of the two vents off on a trip from KY to MS.

Some vintage Airstreams are just not worth the the time, effort and cost to restore (sad but true). On the other hand, those that are worth restoring do sometime need parts which can only come from another vintage trailer.
