New Silver Streak Clipper owner

The past several months I have spent hours lurking here. I had been trying to buy a 1951 Silver Streak Clipper since last year. A few weeks ago I got it. But finding information about this trailer has been a struggle. This site offered lots of helpful information and tips. So I have come out of the shadows and joined in the fun. My SS is very original and in really good shape for a 63 YO trailer. It has the original Stove (Coleman) and fridge (Marvel) The stove works the fridge runs but does not cool. The interior was all there including the rear twin beds with adjustable back rests. I call them my Lucy and Desi beds. My hope is to restore it back to it's original glory. I'm a professional Cabinet maker so I have some skills. I have built 3 teardrop trailers and still have 2. I'm an avid camper and get out about 40+ nights a year. This will be my first trailer I can stand up in. LOL. I'm located in Northern Illinois. My wife does not want to camp anymore so it's me and my dog Marley. She's a good camper but hogs the bed a little. Thanks in advance for the help!

Thanks Kevin, for the help and the welcome. I'm sure over the next several months I will need lots of questions answered as I try and bring this thing back to life.
