'57 Caravanner Looked at In GA

Howdy, all. I was asked (Annie, hope you like it) if I could go look at a close-to-me 1957 Caravanner by Airstream (had to add the brand name just in case someone didn't know that it was a model of Airstream; no names shall be mentioned).

I took 55 pics and a bunch of notes. The owner has had it for about 3 years and had hoped to convert it to a toy hauler (motorcycle) to pull behind his AS motorhome. If he cut the back off and put in a ramp...

He recently offered it for sale on AirstreamTrailers.com for $4,500, then offered it for $4,000. He just towed it home with his Cherokee, and he said it towed great (old tires, no brakes, bearings?).

I just wanted to share a cool looking oldie.

Here are a couple pics; the outside is in pretty good shape (I wish I had that fews dings in me!). I uploaded all of them (Snapfish) and shared my pics with Annie for her review, along with my write-up.
