Fun vintage trailer on the St. Louis craigslist. LONG! Ad says it's a 1954 Kit.

Wut? Could there be a shred of truth to this?

Cause Im not seeing it- Looks like an old ice cream truck chevy step van

I have this old... I mean "vintage" Airstream built "A" van that's been sitting in my yard for 25+ years. It is similar to a Grumman Step-Van, but it has the sliding side doors in front and the bread truck-style rear doors to allow you full access to the glorious contents. I have been using it only for storage, it does not run but possibly could, I think it got water in the crankcase when I drove it to the storage yard. It has a 400 Pontiac engine and automatic transmission I dropped in after salvaging that from an old station wagon. I think you would have to re-power it if you need it on the road. The body was built by Airstream (yes, that Airstream-the ones who make the travel trailers). I wish it still had the original six cylinder engine with the three-speed manual gearbox.

You nailed it. He emailed me it's got an Airstream badge and is an A Van model.


Airstream started looking for possible fits for its' manufacturing facility after the energy crisis in 1973. We built about 520 vans for the Post Office. And also for several years built bread trucks and vans for other commercial applications and used a GM chassis. We also assembled UPS trucks for a while.*

LOL - very funny Robin... I think you could fit all your trailers IN this one. Then the glow would be coming from within.

For Sale: 1974 22 ft ; $3500 on Craigslist

Someone has listed an unpainted Argosy trailer on the Portland, Oregon Craigslist.

Don't know if it's legit. One picture, some verbage & phone number with the listing.

Just thought I would pass it along.
