Please keep your eyes open for a Streamline or Silver Streak

The wife and I are digging out of all the wonderful snow we've been blessed with here in Michigan and are thinking about a nice vintage camper to use this Spring. We currently pull an Airstream 22FB and really like it but have been bitten by the vintage bug. I have been watching Craigslist in our area but if someone stumbles across a nice unit please let me know. I am retired military and do not mind a road trip for something worth buying.

Thanks, Tony

How about an Avion? There's a 1966, 19 footer on Craig's List, Little Rock, Arkansas, that looks interesting.

Thanks, Tony

SS weight

30' might be a bit long, but weight-wise these "oldies" can pleasantly surprise you.

I see the seller states around 6k# with a GVWR of 8k#. Hitch weight shown as 700#

My 1966 T27 Avion is right at 5k# ready to camp - full water and LP!

Good Luck!

1/2 ton Ram - is that a 2500? I pull a 31' with mine and have no problem - in fact I some times forget it's there, not really but it's more than enough.

This one DOES look like a goodie! Really nice skin & honey cabinets. The Cayo's who made it are in Watervliet, MI and can fix anything on it!

No it is a 1500. Your 2500 is a 3/4 ton.

My folks pulled their 28' with a car. Family of five. The GVWR is pretty much the same for those and longer units with max size about 32' for many years.

A few years back there were quite a few for sale. The market is far less, now.

Pretty nice looking Streamline, which I think are great trailers, got one myself.

There was a really nice Streamline in Seattle around $20k. I can find if you want.

There appears to be something fishy with the craigslist ad. There are two different campers pictured. There is an additional Streamliner ad in the Dallas craigslist that might have had their pics stolen.
