Looking for childhood Airstream

Im not sure that I am in the correct catagory, but Im sure Ill get answers here. When I was very young my parents had an Airstream, I have been a member of this site for almost a year now, and have looked at thousands of pictures and have not seen one like they had. Both parents are long gone and so is the Airstream. So questions to them about the Airstream are out. I will describe it the best I can. The thing I remember the most is it had two doors on it, of course the main door opened into the living\kitchen area, the rear door was thourgh a closet in the bathroom. It was a twin and dual axel, the toilet was on a rise to the right of the bathroom. I cant remember what model it was. I would love to see a picture of one and to know the model. My dad bought it in Indiana,(that is where we were living at the time,) we lived in it for a few months while he was building our house in Tennessee, then he sold it to my great uncle from Georgia, and that was the last I ever saw of it. Thanks, Tommy.

The years, or era, of the trailer would help.

Two door Airstreams are very rare. There were very few made. Are you sure it was an Airstream? Around what year was it purchased? Knowing that will really help.

Im almost sure, it was beautiful, so it must have been an Airstream, it was at least a 24 to 26 feet long if not longer, it seems bigger then my Tradewind.

Wow, you really have me doubting now it was an Airstream with the 1974. It is possible, but I am doubtful.

Now that I think back on it Im sure it was an Airstream, the layout was the same as my Tradewind only a little bigger.

54 Liner is much older, no door in a door, or in this case doors, it was newer than my 66.

An early '60's Streamline was my first thought on reading the OP.
