This is supposed to happen. It's a test to make sure you are truly happy with what you have, and not always wanting more. That would be the response from my better half - be happy for what you have and enjoy it while you have it. I hate when she says that - I believe she learned that from my mother, or her mother, or both mothers.

The Silver Streak is neat, but what you have is gorgeous and comes with this huge family of supporters.

What a Time Machine !

Bet that was 'hot' in 1976.
Don't think I ever saw one...only 12 made, I see why.
That thing is in great shape, and the MIL TT in tow would be cool.

'Estate' is sure used alot these days..like 'classic' 'rare'
Zero bidders still

When my older brother starts asking me what I'm doing with my shop/tools/hot rods/Airstream/guitar I start to get worried. You are absolutely right - Estate is being used far too much these days. I don't have an estate, these are my things. They portray to the world who I think I am. It will be a sad day (for me at least - or I think anyways) if my stuff is on eBay as part of an estate sale.

Good thing I've tricked them all - if I outlive my wife (not likely) it all goes to the cancer society and the SPCA. Hah. Of course if my wife outlives me it will likely end up on eBay as part of an estate sale. Dang!

As for the Silver Streak Mo-Ho, as neat and as rare as it is, it's still not an Airstream and I don't mean that the wrong way. They made great rigs as did Avion, Streamline and others, but they didn't come with Wally attached, and that's a huge differentiator in my mind. There's an aura about Airstreams and the Mo-Ho you have will always be considered a treasure by the vast majority of people who camp. The Silver Streak Mo-Ho will be neat, but an orphan.

1975?
Thinking back...the Silver Streak looks older than that.

If I was shopping for a RV in '75 would be tough to bring that thing home with the GMs in their prime.

Silver Streak

How would you ever change a tire on that rig with the half wheel wells. I changed a tire on my 28 ft Argosy.....with it's nice big wheel wells....and it was still a job. Can't imagine how you'd reach some of those lug nuts...to say nothing of lifting the wheel up in place....WOW

It almost looks like a bus conversion (Also, I didn't realize that company made anything except trailers)! Does anyone know what year it is?

The Avion trailer looks like it is in nice shape too. I had to look twice to see that the MH actually was not towing the Avion!

The Silver Streak company also made a few truck campers. Very limited, but very much like Avion's. Their primary product was their trailers, though, and they were fairly popular although a dealer would never have survived with just that product line.

Ford Truck Hoods

"kind of like a hand formed aluminum bonnet on an Aston Martin compared to Ford truck hood."

I hate to clue the guy in but my 58 MGA and my 2001 F-150 SuperCrew both have an aluminum bonnet/hood.

It cost me a few buck to have a dent in the truck hood put there by a pine cone taken out, thats how I know.

Wow...
They even made a Class C



Guess that really is a 1975, looks more 60s though.
