Need trailer identified, please

I just picked up a 1948/51 airstream? It says pioneer schooner on the side. It has 2 doors with round windows, and the exterior has a rippled lower level around the outside. The bedroom is in the back, and the bath. Then the kitchen is in the middle and the living room in the front. I tried to post a picture with no success. If someone can give me a head's up on that I will happily post some pics. Would love some help with figuring out exactly what it is.

Thanks~

Denise

Hi Denise,
Airstream never made a model called "Pioneer Schooner" as far as I am aware. There was however a company that made trailers back then that was called "Prairie Schooner". Perhaps that is what it is.
Is it all aluminum riveted construction?
You could also go to the Tin Can Tourists website, as there are numerous vintage trailer brands out there.
Good luck,
Colin

The 1951 Prairie Schooner had two doors and 'rippled' aluminum at the bottom half of the body. Do a google image search and I suspect you'll find links to your trailer model.
