Is This An Airstream?

Hey guys! I was watching a music video for a song called "This Is What It Feels Like" Armin van Buuren feat. Trevor Guthrie - This Is What It Feels Like (Official Music Video) - YouTube. It starts out with the crumpled up remains of a camper. It "appears" to be an Airstream but Iv never seen one with such a tiny front window. Most all Iv seen have a flat square window. What is it?

It could be a 30's or 40's Airstream or some similar aluminum aircraft construction travel trailer.

That's a Curtis Wright, actually rare and pre Airstream.

Most likely a 1946 20' Curtis Wright Clipper (model 2), maybe '47.

That's at the Bagdad Cafe in Newberry Springs on Rt66.

It is an Airstream, along with a few others. (in 1999 when we stopped)

Well that's proof enough there lol. Happen to know what model it is?

I also initially thought it was a Curtis Wright but then remembered the front end is pointed with two oval windows instead of one. I found a picture on the internet of a bicycler pulling an Airstream identical to this one (although roadworthy!)

I am thinking late 40's. Very Cool. I have a 65 Tradewind and that's too much of a project, at the moment
But, Good Luck. Keep in touch.

Looks like a '47-'50-ish 22' Liner to me.
