What is it?

Spotted this Airstream parked at a private land in holding within Roxborough State Park southwest of Denver. And it does move on occasion, not planted and sinking into the earth. I think I know the year, model and state of manufacture since itís as old as me and Iím retired. Your thoughts appreciated. And I wonder how many are left in original condition?

BW, it looks to be about a 55 Overlander. Could be any of the three years California built whale tails. Take a picture of the emblem to the right of the door and post it. It can be identified by the numbers on the plate. Good luck

Based upon a variety of visible details that is most likely a 1954 22' Flying Cloud built in California, else an early 1955 model. I am sure it is a California built 22' Flying Cloud. Only the year is in slight question.

Upon closer look, I see that Airstream was installing solar back in the 50ís. This unit looks to be a great find.
because I catch fish on a fly...

That’s my guess too, a ‘54 FC built in California. I’m reluctant to investigate much more since it’s on private property. But I hike by it weekly.
