Looks like an early 50's Liner to me...Check w/Bill Kerfoot (wkerfoot) he has one. Could also be a Sovereign of the Road or Commodore, but they usually have one door. Do you have the VIN#?

Looks like it's in GREAT shape from the picture...but that pic may not be the same as the one you talked about with the grass growing up around it. Regardless, looks like a nice find - restored they certainly are "lookers"!

I agree with Shari, a 29' 1954 Liner. The tip off is the vertical front and rear caps. The window locations are different than mine. Please post the serial number, all of the 1954 Liners that I have seen are from Ohio.

With the two door and the fact that they have righthand hinges, outside looking in, tells me that this is a picture of a custom trailer... 54 0r 55 is my guess... Also notice the number of windows! Airstream typically never had the door swing in front of windows, another sign that it maybe a custom trailer... In any case it is a Very cool find!

This is the one parked in front of the JC Service Center that I posted over a year ago. I recognize my photo.

The OP is referring to a different one, sitting in a field somewhere. It's still got my same filename.

That's what I suspected...looked to be in too good of good shape for sitting in a field with grass grown up around it for years.

Taillights say 65 to 68 but windows say 69 +. Very odd and rare model with double doors. The length looks like a 31 ft Sovereign.

To note that the only two things it has in common with the trailer you showed us in the first post is that it's an Airstream, and it has two doors. It's a much younger model.

elkay12,

Have you had contact with the owner yet? Do you know if it is actually for sale?

I think that's a custom made pre-divorce () model. The trailer has a center wall and the husband & wife can come and go from their own doors without having to see or speak with each other!

Sorry - on the serious side, I would be very curious to see what the interior layout is like. Maybe a custom commercial model?
