I posted a couple of pics in the 1950's photo gallery. I think this is a link to them: http://www.airforums.com/photos/brow...?c=501&userid=
I'll post a link to my flickr account once I upload all the images.
The VIN# on our unit is 7294. Does this tell me anything other than it was made in California? I was actually on the vintageairstream photo page looking at the examples of other '52's and they have pics of #7295. It looks nothing like mine, which I guess goes to show how customized they were back then.
The white slip covers on the front couch are covering what appears to be the original red upholstery for the couch. when we were picking the trailer up from P&S. We're still uncertain as to whether the couch is original. It folds out into a sleeper (which you'll see in my flickr stream) and fits into the front of the trailer so perfectly it's hard to believe someone could find such a custom fit in a non-stock piece of furniture, but who knows. The red table is period, and looks like other tables I've seen in pics, but the finish doesn't match the countertops in the galley. Maybe they chose a red table to go with the red couches. Who knows.
Lots of work to be done. There are more soft spots in the floor than we previously thought, and the fridge compressor isn't kicking on. Add those things to our already lengthy list of updgrades, and it appears I didn't simply by a trailer. I bought a new hobby that's going to last me a lifetime.
