1961 Silver Streak 19' Travel Trailer Exhibit "A"

1961 Silver Streak Travel Trailer 19' (A)
1961 Silver Streak 19' Travel Trailer

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN): 4TSTS314

THIS TRAILER IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. THE FLOOR IS SOLID AND WAS SEALED BEFORE THE WALL TO WALL CARPET JUST TWO YEARS AGO. THIS TRAILER WAS BUILT IN CALIFORNIA AND SPENT MOST OF ITS LIFE IN ARIZONA. THE FOLD DOWN BANKETTS HAVE BEEN REUPHOLSTERED IN 2000 BY PREVIOUS OWNER AND THERE ARE NO RIPS ANYWHERE. NEW BRAKES, WHICH ARE ELECTRIC AS WELL AS NEW BACKING PLATES ON TRAILER IN 2002. THE ORIGINAL REFRIGERATOR HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A MODERN ELECTRIC ONE FROM LOWE'S IN 2003. AN UPDATED ELECTRIC/GAS REFRIGERATOR CAN BE PURCHASED AND INSTALLED BY ANY REPUTABLE RV DEALER FOR THOSE WHO MAY WANT TO RESTORE TO ORIGINAL VINTAGE SPECIFICATIONS. THE ORIGINAL GAS STOVE WORKS JUST FINE AND SO DOES THE EXHAUSE FAN AS WELL AS THE LIGHT FIXTURES AND WALL SOCKETS. THE REST OF THE INTERIOR IS PRETTY MUCH ORIGINAL INCLUDING THE PAINT ON THE WALLS. THE BUILT IN WOODEN DRESSER NEXT TO THE MASTER BED NEEDS SOME MINOR RESTORATION. THE MASTER BED IS DOUBLE SIZE AND STANDARD SHEETS WILL FIT. THE DOOR LOCKS ARE ORIGINAL, BUT I DIDN'T GET THE KEYS. THEY WERE LOST. I LOCK THE DOOR WITH A CHAIN AND PAD LOCK. KEYS FOR THE ORIGINAL LOCKS CAN BE MADE BY A REPUTABLE LOCKSMITH. NO AIR CONDITIONER CAME WITH THIS UNIT. IT IS LIGHT AND TOWS QUITE NICELY. IT IS FITTED WITH ONE OF THE FIRST REESE WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION SPRING BAR SYSTEMS. THIS SPREADS THE TOTAL WEIGHT FROM THE FRONT AXLE OF THE TOW VEHICLE TO THE AXLE OF THE TRAILER. THIS SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCES THE FISH TAIL EFFECT OF THE TRAILER WHILE IN TOW. TRAILER ONLY WEIGHTS ABOUT 2500 LBS. I BOUGHT A USED MODERN TYPE COMMODE, BUT HAVE NOT GOTTEN AROUND TO PLUMBING IT IN YET. I HAVE TAKEN THE OLD HEAVY CAST IRON FRESH WATER HOLDING TAKE OUT. A NEW PLASTIC MODERN TYPE TANK IS NEEDED. THIS IS NOT AN EXPENSIVE ITEM. THE GAS HOT WATER TANK WORKS AND I HAVE HAD NO TROUBLE, OR LEAKS FROM IT. THIS TRAILER IS ALUMINUM AVIATION TYPE CONSTRUCTION WITH THE ALUMINUN EXTENDING COMPLETELY AROUND AND YES, UNERNEATH THE TRAILER. I BELIEVE THAT IS WHY YOU STILL SEE AIRSTREAMS AND SILVER STREAKS OF THIS VINTAGE STILL AROUND. THIS AVIATION TYPE RIVITED ALUMINUM IS FAR SUPERIOR TO ANYTHING BUILT TODAY. THIS HAS A STANDARD 7 PIN CONNECTOR AND ONE WIRE ALLOWS TOW VEHICLE TO CHARGE UP BATTERY IN TRAILER. THE FURNACE WORKS BECAUSE I LIT IT UP RIGHT AFTER I GOT IT, HOWEVER I HAVE NEVER USED THE HEATER. THIS TRAILER IS 75% RESTORED TO ITS ORIGINAL VINTAGE SPLENDER!!

The unit has the original gas operated light in the kitchen area.
