New owner of 196x Streamline Countess

Hello All,

My co-worker has generously given me her 196x Streamline Countess which is in great original shape, no leaks, the floor may require some work however. This will be my project over the next couple of years, I don't really intend to travel in it too much and will be happy enough for it to be a guest suite and clubhouse for my 7 year old.

I haven't been able to confirm the year so if anyone can help me figure that out it would be appreciated. When I figure out image posting here I will include the picture, but in any case the numbers from the ID plate are: M-71, S-6111, 3401, DoH# A-69522 and from the Logo plate SER. 6111 MDL. 26. It was represented as a 1964 but doesn't seem to match the brochure pics from that year. The unusual feature is the second rear door.

-dan

I have a 66 Duke. The brochure I have shows other models. This is the smallest trailer that shows a back door ( i assume into the wardrobe?). I think they could be ordered with custom floor plans (says at the bpttom additional floor plan available). The exterior of yours looks pretty much like mine with 3 tail lights etc.

Thanks Dogg.

Out of curiosity, what is the serial# on your Duke?

I don't guess I know where the serial # is.

I'd say you have a 1964 Countess. I also have a 1964 Countess. My plate reads M-71, S-6113' 3401. A-69523. The logo plate says ser 6113' Mdl 26.

My title says C26S6113'. And is also. Stamped on the tounge .

I have the twin bed layout that barkingdogg posted. Mine does not have the extra door, but looks like yours otherwise. I wonder how many they made that year. At first I looked at your numbers and though we had the same serial number. But I would imagine that it would be safe to say they are the same year.

Also be sure to look in the vintage kin forum. There are several with streamlines and silver streaks.

Well dmcummins- I think it is quite amazing that our trailers rolled off the assembly line within weeks (if not days) of each other. What is the history of yours? How long have you owned it?

I am slowly assessing the condition of mine- I do expect to replace the gas lines and all water system.

Was yours clear-coated?

Ive had the trailer a couple of years. I have done quite a bit of work on it. I stripped off the clearcoat and shined it up some. Not a mirror finish like some, but it looks much better than it did.

We have just started using it. Here is a pic from a few weeks ago at the Indiana Dunes State Park.

Your trailer does look great. What are you pulling it with?

I have a 3/4 ton Dodge diesel. Its more than I need. I use to pull it with a Chevy Avalanche. I had the trailer weighed empty, when I first got it, and it weighed 4700lbs. Since then I have added A/C, flooring and a few other things. I'm guessing that it weighs 5500 to 6000lbs now loaded and ready to go.
