hi , new guy here
my name is Stephan...please excuse my sometimes bumpy English
... i was born and raised in Switzerland and never had the opportunity to learn English in school (the Swiss school system likes to force you to learn German, Italian & French
i got infected with the "polished aluminum aircraft style trailer"
bug a little over a year ago when i found my 1966
Streamline collecting dust in Phoenix.
she was in very poor shape so i did a complete "frame off" renovation.
however, i`m not a retro freak (i dont like to camp in a rolling museum
) and i like to be different ... so i took some liberty in the reconstruction;
so i added things like all LED lights, modern high speed tires, dropped riding height (better aerodynamics), all new & lightweight plastic tanks, lots of outside storage, ....
and a vertical stabilizer fin !!!
as my screen name suggests i share my life with two lovely Briard`s (french sheepdog) ... my two boys goofing around in the trailer :
(3.5 year old "Ozzy" and 1 year old puppy "Armas")
in fact the trailer is build especially for the dogs; we like to go to AKC dog agility events all over the west.
i already traveled well over 10000 miles with the Streamline
i enjoi the Streamline so much that i managed to rescue a couple more trailers;
a 54 Spartan Manson (project/for sale), a 64 Streamline (agility equipment trailer), a 73 Streamline (for sale) and a 69 Airstream (project)
my newest score is a 1950
Spartanette Tandem that i just started to rebuild ....
she will eventually replace the 66 Streamline as my main "Doggy" trailer; she is bigger and 2 feet longer but actually a lot lighter and tows like a dream
i already learned a lot by just visiting this board as a guest ...
now as a member i hope i can also add some useful posts and info
greetings from me and the boys
