There was a thread on the Vintage Airstream List started by Forrest McClure regarding this trailer with some history. You can find the thread in Tom's archives here: http://www.tompatterson.com/VAC/MHon.../msg00055.html

The pictures really don't depict the trailer's diminuitive size at all. This little beauty is almost taller than it is long. A side, profile shot would really shown this. Wish there were more photos.
