1962 Streamline Duke

I just purchased a 1962 Streamline Duke. I would have loved an airstream but could not find one up here. However, I am very pleased with this camper. Everything is much the way it was originally. I have so enjoyed reading all of your information and stories on this site that I hope to continue. Even though mine is a Streamline I have learned so much from your wealth of information. I will add some pictures and as you will see I have removed all of the doors and drawers and am in the process of sanding and staining them. Much to do and much to learn. Thank you for letting me be a part of this site.

Welcome! Your Streamline is just beautiful and I know you'll have a great time freshening up the finishes to make it your own. Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress!

Don't touch that Dial...

Welcome and congratulations on your 1st post! But please don't think that because it isn't an Airstream that you cannot participate here. We have other members with aluminum trailers that are cousins to Airstreams and some that are even distant cousins twice removed! So stay around and enjoy the rallies and fun! We all want to see more pics and hear more of your future adventures. Happy Trails, Ed

Beautiful! I love the look of all those panels, and the three tail lights.

The Streamline was a near twin to the Silver Streak. The owners of SS had a difference of philosophy and slip off to build the Streamline. The Streamline did not last as long as the Silver Streak. Both are well built trailers and jsut hkeep going and going.

We recently bought a 1989 Avion 34V and have the 79 Silver Streak looking for a new home. Hopefully to someone that appreciates the quality of the beautiful old silver trailers.

I have always likes the Streaks and Streamlines.

On a trip through the Rockies and West coast back in the early 60's we saw a lot of them on the road.

Thank you all for your support and the history of these lovely RVs. I am so excited to have one. I feel very fortunate.

Streamline made a first class trailer, equal to an Airstream and in some ways possibly better. More room inside because of the squared off shape, and built very well although heavier than a comparable Airstream.

Yours looks like it is in excellent shape. I'm sure it will get a lot of compliments at any trailer rally or camp ground.

I just bought a 1966 Streamline Duke & so far really like it. Have you thought of adding a grey water tank or has someone else done it already? I sure like all the awnings yours has, mine does not have any.

I am not thinking of putting in a gray tank. I will probably use it on a site where I have direct access to sewer. I am actually thinking of putting in a regular toilet. I'm past the age of doing much boon-docking. I am sure enjoying working on it though. It is a great camper. I absolutely love her.
