'53 30 ft'er (Sovereign even back then??)

I'd love to go get it, but Andrea would kill me first.

If you'd like a serious restoration job and a seriously old (and I assume rare) camper: 1953 Airstream camper

I understand...

Hey WISCO.... I did a similar turd transaction. I made a deal in upper Michigan. Bought airline tickets for my brother to meet me in Chicago. I drove up there and.....you guessed it. Sold out from under our bargain. What do you say....that will do any good.
I am still looking for you....whale tails only.

BIG DENT just behind and above the door area- still for sale and apparently he has 4 other Airstreams to sell too and will make a deal on all of them. Here are some other photos he email to us- we aren't going to go for it. Pretty rare trailer though!

Talked to this guy at length. It is actually a 54 Liner S/N O-5013. The previous owner removed the rear hehr window, and installed a sliding window to serve concesions out of. Also the bumper looks like it caught something and is bent in a picture he sent me.

Really looking for a 13 panel that is 26 feet or greater right now for a professional restoration.

You guys probably already knew/saw this but here are some more pics of 5013 from a few years ago: 1954Liner_5013

Mistral,

That is not the same trailer. You have 5013, but the one on Craigslist is O-5013 which was an Ohio made trailer. 5013 was made in California.

You are correct! My bad. I think I'm gonna hafta blame it on the warm beer I inadvertently drank this afternoon. Either that, or the sun got in my eyes.

I found a for sale 24' '76 Argosy behind one of our local taverns this weekend. (not on Craigslist) Signs say $5000 or BO. Located in Richland WA. Phone numbers appear to be 509-438-1689 and 509-205-8462. Body and paint don't look too bad. All windows have sun screens in them so I couldn't peek inside (by standing on my truck bumper).

I keep forgetting to mention. If the trailers I see are native to our area, we live in the desert part of Washington State where we get only 6" of precipitation annually. Toasty hot summers with no rain.

theyve been trying to unload this for a while. i think due to email, etc, there's no longer a need for a mailroom - or a dedicated trailer anyway.

the WBCCI #96 sure is interesting. id love to hear the history of this.

I'll take it for the $1 asking price in the title but I think the asking price in the body of the ad is too high. Just my .02 worth.
