Thumbs up Mintage Airstream

I went to the Grand Opening of Mintage Airstream in East Missoula Yesterday. They have been around for a couple of years restoring Airstreams'.

They have started building their own model travel trailer. Simple and efficient.

I made the "mistake" of asking the owner if the they had a 62 Flying Could. We have a 61. No I am looking for a 62. "I will check my NW connections and see what I can find". I may be adding a 62 Flying cloud to start my collection sooner than I had planned.

Vintage Travel Trailers (Airstreams) for Sale | Airstream Restoration | Vintage Airstreams | Custom Travel Trailers

I hope they succed.

They don't seem to have much trouble selling them. I drive by there regularly.

This particular tool has been outside in the 98 to 102 degree heat for a few weeks working (having fun) on our trailer. I love what I have been able to accomplish. But!!!! If I could just win the lottery, a Mintage trailer would be in my crosshairs... They look sweet!

Oh, very nice, if pricey. But at that end of the spectrum, not outrageous considering the work involved and the apparent results.
