Silverstreak Clipper Rebuild

Posted 06-23-2021 at 12:57 AM by rob5301

Hi All,

I bought a Silverstreak Clipper Series 7 six years ago and due to family changes I'm just starting a limited rebuild. Frame, floor and windows for now.

So......1950, Series 7.....Serial number 2004

From previous searches it's the oldest still in existence and in remarkable condition.

I'll post photo's as I go along.

Doing this after a total rebuild 7 years ago of our touring trailer 1954 Airstream.

I recently purchased a 1989 34' excella. In reasonably good shape. The previous owner had it setup for rv park only. Which means upon investigation , underneath the false bottom of the closet, I found the former lines cut with the new lines nowhere to be found. He must have run them from the water inlet under the sink around under the floor up by the kitchen sink. The fresh water tank has been bypassed completely. My problem is 2 fold. 1. which old stub goes to the fresh water tank? 2. Even if I...

'69 Overlander Int'l Shell off

Posted 06-11-2020 at 09:05 AM by TCOverlander

Purchased our first AS in June of '19. Restoration of this 1969 Overlander International, "D" was begun by the previous owner. Basically, the interior furniture was removed and some replacement pieces and parts were bought. The previous owner gave up and put it on craig's list after realizing he couldn't devote the time to the project.

I'm not sure how this project will turn out. Could be a restoration, could be a remodel. We (wife and I) do have a general sense for...
