Our Next Trailer?

 We had driven by this old Silver Streak many times over the last 5 years and commented "How Cool" it was.
 We Love the look of these older aluminum "Aircraft" looking trailers. This one never moved and the weeds were starting to overtake this little gem. I finally decided to leave a note under the door of the building where this was parked asking the owner if he would like to sell it. We got a call a couple of days later from the owner saying he did want to sell it. He told us to go by and look at the inside of the trailer to see if it was what we were looking for and then get back to him.
 We inspected it inside and out. It is a great floor plan. It doesn't appear to need any structural work, just a lot of cleaning, new flooring, mattresses and cushions. A little wood work and possibly replacing some of the sub floor. Probably some re-wiring and plumbing too.
She has some typical "bumps and bruises" for a trailer this old we like to refer to as character.
We have agreed on a price and the seller is delivering her this week.

Can't wait to get started..........Can't wait to take her camping!!!!!!
