Need help identifying this little airstream

The main body measures 9'7" long x 6'8" wide (not including the trailer hitch). The interior maximum height is 5'3". Can anyone provide any information about the year or model?

Is there a serial number on the tongue? Any other identifying marks? The smallest I have ever known Airstream to make was the WeeWind, and it was 13 ft inside on a 16ft frame and tongue....just like the Bambi, etc.

This might be some kind of conversion from the 60s as it is a 8 panel....

Maybe it's a homebuilt? I've never seen anything like that so small. Maybe someone built this as practice before they build a full-size airstream-copy? Just speculating.

Looks like a salvaged Airstream. Home builders could not have stretched formed the dome segments. They may have built a new smaller frame or used parts of the old frame that was not damaged.

Thumbs down

Definitely a FrankenStream....as the center "panel" is not bucked, looks like very large pop rivets. Same with the name plate. No wheelhouse opening.

Welcome to the Forums!

I might have heard of this trailer. The smaller cousin of the "Wee Wind," known as a "Break Wind."

Seriously, this is an art project gone wrong. Looks like someone got hold of a poor 60's vintage trailer, took the rounded ends off of it, stuck them onto a short center panel, trimmed off the bottoms, and split the whole thing length wise (trimming out some of the center), installing the strip patch mentioned above with pop rivets. I can only assume that the wheels must be remove from inside. Since we can't see the rear of the trailer, my bet is that this is actually an AS shell kludged onto a motorcycle carrying trailer, and this is actually a toy-hauler disguised as an unhappy little Airstream.

Poor thing.

Wasn't there a guy in the forums last year who built his own version of an "Airstream" to haul behind his motorcycle? Basically just a box for a bed but he did it lovingly and even bought AS badges for it if I'm not mistaken. Never know what folks can build on their own...

I think it is very cool myself, it would look GREAT behind my 310 classic motorhome.
