Airstream movie co-star

I happened on a movie entitled Zachary Beaver Came to Town. It is a 'family' movie that I found entertaining. But the co-star of the show was an early Airstream. The setting I would guess was the mid-50's in a small Texas town. At the beginning an old single axle Airstream enters the scene. What was great was all through the movie it showed the trailer and interior shots long enough duration where things can easily be viewed. It was referred to by the townies as 'that tin can'.
I liked the one shot at the rear of the trailer the 'AIRSTREAM' faded emblem was easily read. I had hoped at the end they would have ID the trailer but they either didn't or I missed it. A nice family film featuring a veteran Airstream.

I thought I'd pass it on as some experienced Airstreamers might guess the model and year.

It would be great to have an outdoor-movie night at a rally featuring movies with Airstreams! A sheet on the side of a trailer could be our "screen."

My work involves special events. Sure would love to plan a rally here someday.
