Where are those pictures!

There are a couple folks with Double doors but they are very rare. Its a custom order and not a standard option.

Of all of the double doored trailers I witnessed, they were much longer than a 22'er. Now I will tell you there is a gentleman here in town that has a 1959 22'er with a half door opening above the curbside bed so it could be opened up via the hinges and look out while lying on the bed. Looks to be factory installed to me although I can't figure out why unless the owner was handicapped. Strange indeed.

DustyDevil,

Please post some pictures soon, I have a 1954 29' Double Door Liner and Ankornuta has a 1958 56' Double Door Cruiser. Double Door Airstreams are rare and we would all like to see a 22' Double Door. You can see pictures of mine at either: http://www.tompatterson.com/gallery/album06 or http://www.vintageairstream.com/arch...ner/index.html

Long time no see . . .

Welcome back, Dusty Devil! Congratulations on your miracle child and soon-to-be Airstream helper. And yes, life does have a way of intervening . . . but we are still anxiously awaiting those photos!

1956 2 door 22 footer.

This is the ugly duckling...have to do some major cleaning, but she is solid. the under belly is even in great shape. Need some glass that is cracked, door handles etc...plan is to pull everything out, re-wire, re plumb..and put her back to as close to original as we can. I'm super excited to finally get to work on her this summer...she'll be our gorgeous swan soon!

Wow , That is a short trailer for a double door. Bill I have Andy's old trailer and it is in the midst of a full resto/remodel. Its back in one piece getting all sealed up. Having the second door does cut down on options for that curbside wall. Even tighter on a 22 footer. Best of luck with your restoration. Feel free to contact me if I can help. Ed

Thanks... I dreamed about one all of my life...and when we found this one..we had to put wheels on it and tow it out of the woods...amazing it wasn't all torn up out there! it's not really ugly..just my term of endearment for it until we get to start really working on it .... Thank you all for the wonderful forum and all of the help that has been offered! I will take advantage of the knowledge on this site....everytime i read here..i learn so much!
