Adapter / Electric from garage?

What is needed to run electricity to my 59 Traveler. There is a funky plug at the rear of my trailer. Is there some kind of adapter out there that will allow a normal extension cord to power my trailer while I have it parked in my driveway?

There are adapters available at rv stores to convert your trailer cord to a regular plug.

If it is a regular 30A plug,, then you can get it from Camping world. If not, then you should contact inlandrv.com in Corona, or C&G trailer in Cerritos, they can usually recommend a source if they don't have it.
If you buy the 30A RV extension, then you will also need an adapter that converts the end of it to a regular household type plug.
Camping world is off Hwy 5 near Disneyland. I think the offramp is Carmenita, but you better check first.
I hope this helps.

The Airstream trailers are definitely hot.
It is a nicely done package, far from perfect, but sooooo cool. If it wasn't for Airstream, i would never put up with trailer stuff. I am not even the trailer kind of guy, really. But the Airstream we bought is such intense fun, that we decided to try it and found it quite rewarding so far. Had teh tow vehicle from my busness already, anyways. We still do Hotels and Condo type vacations, but for the most part have decided to do quick and spontaneous trips with the old airstream.
Welcome to the forum.

My wife HAD to have one. We got a 59 Traveler last weekend in Los Feliz. Thing is, the 59's don't have user manuals. Its in really good shape. Did you gut yours or do you stay stock? We're torn. I just wanna see the electrical fire up if anything else. What are the stats on yours?

I am not going to gut mine, because it is all original and in good condition. I will some day get a smaller unit and gut it, or buy a gutted one that someone lost interest in. It costs a bundle to redo one and do it well. Big bundle.
I'd like to redo a Safari, seems to be the right size and an easier layout. They started making duall axle Safaris in the 70's, I believe. I prefer the dual axle over the single, for stability reasons.
Anyways, if youor trailer is nice enough for you inside, then I would not gut it.

gut or not

I have the same philosophy as uwe. A classic original interior in good shape is worth preserving. Something that requires major renovation leaves it wide open (once you own it, it is just my opinion ).

We have a 1969 Overlander. The interior is in excellent condition with real light wood with distinctive grain pattern everywhere and yellow formica counter tops. We love it. We have updated upholstery, drapes, new furnace, new water pump and stuff like that, but otherwise it matches the sales brochures.

Good luck with your '59.
