Airstream, it's still aluminum

Maybe a better place for this thread, but I am looking for a vintage Airstream trailer. I would prefer one under 20' but will look at anything. I want one that needs to be restored not a mint condition one. So keep your eyes open on all the back roads and behind garages or barns. I could picture this 16' Bubble behind the Series

You can find them on eBay - they are called a Bambi...anywherefrom 3-30K...they still make the Bambi today, albeit VERY cool and expensive.

I believe our new overlord owns an airstream website.

Just as an FYI, all the old airstreams and similar trailers I looked at needed extensive wood repair, consider expanding your search to a fiberglass trailer or a popup. I ended up with a trailblazer pop up which is really neat, but I am never going to use it. Also, old airstreams are not suited for any sort of "overlanding" IMHO. I know some people do it, but the construction is not really up to the task.

They are really neat though!

One great thing about Airstream. They build the trailer then outfit the inside. This means all of the parts fit thru the door.
