17 And much much more!!!!
The exterior aluminum is in good shape but does have a few imperfections as one would expect for a 55 year old trailer. This trailer has not been polished as many owners would prefer these trailers maintain their original patina. This trailer is about a foot narrower than a new one and is, as a result, much easier to see around when towing. The dry weight of this trailer is only 4200lbs. with a 400 lb. tongue weight. A hitch and sway bar will be needed with a 2 inch hitch ball. The hot water tank, stove top original and oven original are all a manual light; however the fridge 2 way and furnace have electric igniters. The trailer does have air conditioning with a heat strip. This is a true vintage time capsule that will attract considerable attention where ever you go. Original to this Airstream is the triple burner cooktop, a wooden bathroom bifold door, a unique solid bath/shower door, dual screw roof vents with fans, adjustable twin beds as well as other interesting features. Original Wally Byam hooks are found throughout the trailer as are bins and slide out drawers. Unfortunately the pictures do not do this trailer justice. The interior woodwork of this trailer is simply beautiful and clearly represents a time when craftsmanship was paramount. The great thing about vintage airstreams is that they will continue to appreciate in value. This is an investment that you can enjoy! The Airstream is located at my home in South Surrey Vancouver area British Columbia. 47,000 Cdn. or 37,600 U.S.
