While not technically in the Airstream... my favorite vintage accessory will be strapped to the tow vehicle during our future travels;
a 1949 "double planked" canoe from the Willits brothers of Tacoma, WA.

My favorite (ebay) find is an aluminum electric "dealie" that has a hot plate on top to either brew an old style pot of coffee (haven't tried yet) or maybe just keep the pot warm, and just below is a "drawer" to toast one slice of bread. Still has the original fabric covered wire!!

Also, I'm having a local shop electrify my Humphrey gas light! I think it'll be much more usable on a day to day basis, and still be cute.

Would love to see what others have put in their vintage Airstreams.
It is so exciting to find out what others are doing with their trailers. I have been collecting vintage accessories for years.

I am looking for a pink or aqua radio for my '67. I have a small wooden one for my '53.

Canister Shelf

Found these 1950's canister set but they were too bulky to just sit on countertop so I built a shelf to hold them. Had to curve the back to fit against the wall. Love the wax paper holder. Have had my eye on finding one at flea markets. Very nice find.

Love the 50s canister set and shelf. A great idea! I've got my eye on a set of three for my wife that are a perfect size for the Overlander. But you forgot the clock! That clock is pretty rad, too!

The Vernonware set is also cool.

I too have some... things

We too have been on the lookout for items for the trailer. To date we have acquired a wall clock w/stainless steel atomic particle orbit rings for the wall above the side gaucho, an aqua wall mounted ice grinder, a pink GE table clock/radio, a 50's floor to ceiling spring loaded stand lamp w/ orange/white/aqua shades (we have added a stand lamp base to make it free standing) with three way switch, and a set of tabletop salt and pepper shakers that are advertisements for a propane dealer. You guessed it... shaped like propane tanks in gray plastic. More items include 50's/60's ThermoServe cups,bowls,glasses in all the blue,orange,pink,aqua,yellow, and green colors from back in the day. The newest thing was a new birdhouse from Gander Mountain in the design of an Airstream with the port hole window in the door giving the little birds access to the interior. Ed

I agree... Pictures would be great!

Jezibels, The Atomic clock was a google and ebay search for atomic pattern dinnerware that turned up a manufacturer in the UK that I bought it from. I will see if I can find the contact info for you and post it here.

Mike, I would love to post pictures if the wife ever gets the digital camera working again. Hopefully soon. Happy Trails, Ed
