Nice find.I want one.
As for the title,for a couple hundred you could go through a commercial title company.They will search an get a title for you.
My trailer was purchased with only a Bill of sale(do you have a bill of sale?) Mine happened to be a Georgia trailer where no titles are required for a trailer over 25 yrs. old.Got a letter from Georgia stating this and easily got a title in Texas.Might check your state.

Muletuff, hello!
Try going through the FAQ at the top of the page and look for "posting messages". There are size restrictions on pictures to post that you may be exceeding. That's been my most-oft occurring posting issue (so far...)

You have found what I dream of. Now hurry up and post a picture!

Regards,
Rich The Viking

Rich, how do you know you dream of it if we do not even know what it is? You are a free thinker though, so maybe you can dream freely too

I appreciate it but I'm afraid it must remain a dream for the time being.

heres another try

i have tried to upload these darn pix 3xs and am beginning to think that it cannot be done. heres my try for today, then off to work. sorry, after it uploads the photo (which takes 20 min) it makes me relog in, and then either says the system is performing maintenance or cancels my upload attachment-if someone has a normal e-mail address i will be happy to send some photos and maybe they can get them on here-trey

Trey asked that I post these pictures of his Airstream . . . I'm thinking this has got to be a pretty rare find.

been busy on a project for work, but after Mark was kind enough to post my pics (thanks again Mark!) can we confirm that this is a 56 overlander 26 and was it made in california with ser #6631. the title is in the works and ive got all the running lights goin as well as the brakes working great. is this trailer worth a nice interior restoration? it has the original stove, gas light, shower, but the toilet has been removed. having just completely renovated an 89 excella due to water leaks and rotten floor, which we bought from a "VERY" reputable dealer who prides themselves for their "99 point complete inspection and overhaul for customer security" i think i know what i am getting in to, but i didnt have a choice with the excella-which i now refer to as "the collander". shame on these dealers who pitch these used airstreams as "good as new because we charged you a premium for our service dept to check everything out" BULL-i knew more about this 89 excella in 48 hours than they did after completing their overhaul that they claimed took 21 days. I'll quit my venting because in the end it's their integrity lost and only my money (and i can make more of that).
