Her name is Susie-Q.....She is a EXTREMELY RARE cutie born in 1951. This is the smallest Airstream ever made.Only made in 1951 and 1952. She wieghs 1,370 pds! Can pull her with about any vehicle. This is the last Cruisette made in 1951. What makes her EXTRA RARE is the double skin in the end caps. Most had only one skin in the ends....I have camped in elevations that were 14,000 + feet, snowing and stayed cozy with a small ceramic heater.(The double skin is packed inbetween with insulation) She was kept in a barn for over 30 years before my restoration.The floor rock hard without any damage...the frame RUST FREE and solid...and this was before my extensive renovation. We have camped by million dollar rigs and Susie-Q will steal the show every time. Shes a show stopping are a few of her rare features that place on the stage of a ONCE-IN-A-LIFE -TIME-NEVER-SEE-IT-AGAIN....knock down beautiful Airstream Cruisette
