5th Wheel

Many don't know that the Airstream was manufactured as a 5th Wheel in 1979. It was a prototype which never made it to manufacture. But here is one which is still on the road, which visited our park in Punta Gorda, FL.

Saw one northbound on I-95 today near the VA/NC border. Probably the same one. Anybody here on the board have one? I have a couple of older ones that could be used for a home built version.

Also any pictures of the interior anywhere?
