Aaron,
From what I've seen of other (87-89) 5th wheel made by Airstream, This one was in the best of conditions~ The owners told me that it's kept inside a huge barn year round..except when it's on the road..
As for the white Intergrity model, all I know is what I was told when I was at the factory in 2000. It was said to be a prototype model and, wasn't going to make it to the market with the Airstream badge.(Now I hear differently.) Funny thing, I've never seen it in any Airstream company materials as a model line offered to a dealership for sale. Wonder why that is????

I think the Integrity 5'er's don't have a standard Airstream Badge if I remember correctly, but they do say something like "Integrity by Airstream". I wonder if they were made in another Thor factory and not even in Jackson Center. I wonder if they are a knock off of some other Thor 5'er, kinda like the Skydeck motorhomes are an outgrowth of another Thor company that makes Skydeck MH's, 5'er's, and trailers (http://www.skydeckrv.com/).

yes--- I am writing on the ones that were short lived in the market, many Airstreamers have never seen any of these.

Odd TT seen in Richland WA

Thought you might be interested. It was parked outside a nice hotel. The otherside had a regular trailer entry door and fold down steps...

Nice Rig Looks like something I would have built . Yes the wheels are that far back...for a reason. I bet that thing could tow a 40k# trailer on a pintle. Take a look at some of the lineman trucks and you will see the wheels way to the back like that.

Definitely home made - part 1990's GMC Medium Duty Truck - part 1960's or 1970's travel trailer. I would classify this one in the department of "why?". But I hope the owner enjoy's his or her unique creation and the attention it must get.
