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!!!!!!
I was born and have lived my entire life in the state of California. My parents moved to the little town of Thousand Oaks in 1959. The first year there, we did not even have a school. We had to go to school in makeshift classes in a cul-de-sac of new homes. The town has since turned into a beautiful town with a population of over 100,000. I married the girl I dated in high school and for some reason, she still keeps me around (35 years and counting). About 10 years ago we moved to a smaller community about 7-8 miles away in an attempt to re-capture that small town feel. Oh I forgot to mention that in 1976 we were blessed with the birth of a wonderful daughter. Our daughter married about the same time we moved (10 years ago) and now we are all getting ready to make the next journey in our lives. We are going to be moving to the Spokane area (in 2007) of Washington state. We are hoping to be able to buy homes as near to each other as possible (on acreage). Look out Spokane, here we come!
