I know nothing about Silver Streaks, but the picture makes it look longer than 26'. And did they still use jalousie windows in 1978?

It's a 28'. And part of the 1977 model run where the anodized "gold" band at the midsection turned out silvery. Titled as a '78 wouldn't worry me.

The price is certainly low enough to investigate, but changes from OEM are always a bit suspect. The bath floor is an area to investigate as it may have been waterlogged at some point. As with any trailer, lack of proper plumbing winterization may have flooded the the TT.

The water tank is under the drivers side bed, and the water heater in the bath. Plumbing run to the shower is along the baseboard interior from street to curb side. Easy enough to find hacked repairs, etc. Toilet sprayer leaks also common. All plumbing is easy to inspect on an SS.

A price this low makes me think of skin damage (backing) or tire blowouts.

Price doesn't seem particularly low to me. I see SS all the time around here for that or less, people can't sell them nearly as easily as Airstreams. It might be a nice trailer, no way to tell from those awful pictures, it needs a good first-hand going-over!
