Two comments. One, if you need help inspecting a potential purchase please check us out. We are now signing up inspectors all over the US to inspect vintage trailers, and even if you can't find a trailer expert I know you could find a vintage car enthusiast who would gladly go look at a trailer and take photos for you.

Also, keep your eyese on the Portland, Oregon craigslist for good, usable trailers. Portland has a thriving food cart scene, many using vintage trailers, and they do come up for sale quite often. Some that have already been converted.
There are more Streamline and Silver Streaks that have been converted due to the lower purchase price.
In fact, The Grilled Cheese Grill (one of our favorite places just a few blocks from us) uses a vintage Streamline Countess.
Here's a blurry photos of it:
