I have always been a huge fan of the trailers in my yard also. My 62 has been an absolute work horse. We have ridden her hard since we got her.

I also love my two 54 Safari. Though not usable at present, they will be someday. I am very fond of what I have, however, there are a few I wish were mine. They all belong to friends of mine...

I also an totally enamored with Mr Perkins, 1954 Byam Holiday. I would almost trade a child for this trailer. Well, I am exaggerating, but I would call on my line of credit if ever given the opportunity.

I have also become deeply smitten by my current project. She is a 1964 Double Door.

When we visited Jackson Center December 2009 to make our annual AS Donation, I really liked the three old ones out front. I called them the Three Sisters.

The two-door one was IMHO the coolest though. They weren't open for touring inside, but I would guess most of the charm on that one is the exterior; it looks to old to be "cute" inside.

Hi, none of these are mine, but unique in their own way. I will try to post two pictures of each.

The first pictures are of Blue Betty spotted at the Long Beach airport. [Jet Blue Airlines]

The second two pictures are of an Airstream that was permitted by the city of Seal Beach to be part of a permanent house.

The third set of pictures are of an Antique [1936] Airstream inside of the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles.

It is actually very cute inside. There is a great deal of birds eye maple used and the interior was very modern and comfortable just like a luxurious house.
I was looking for my photos of the Granddad but you beat me to the punch.

That styling alwasy make me think of the submarine (the Nautilus) in the Disney picture, "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea".

It looks evil, somehow

I'll take your word for it, Frank, never having had the occasion to see it!

Thumbs up

I am very partial to the early Clippers (and "Old Granddad" specifically at the Ohio Factory where I used to be enamored with it even as a small child attending the first factory rally).

The pre-Airstream Bowluses are amazing...it is really interesting to see the evolution of these old riveted trailers.

The most unique, I would say, is the 13' Der Klein Prinz as seen at the RV/MH Museum in Elkhart, IN. That sucker is so small, it looks like it could be comfortably towed by a motorcycle. I am surprised that AS has not come out with a small, traditional AS shaped retro trailer in the interest of continually rising fuel prices...the Base Camp does not count. That thing is kinda retro toward the original Torpedo trailers, but in a not so pretty way.

Just my opinion...

I also really like a certain '64 Bambi II in the driveway...a small AS I could atually afford and will look forward to applying gallons of sweat equity to!

Ben
