Summer’s not over! Your adventure awaits.
Why vintage? One-of-a-kind, piece of history, no depreciation.
This is serial number 2196 of the Silver Streak Trailer Company’s Model 7 series, the direct descendant of Wally Byam’s Curtis Wright Clipper. It is affectionately known as the “alien eye” trailer. At 71 years old, she is a gem among vintage trailers for her airplane style construction and her Art Deco aesthetic. This trailer has undergone a full down-to-the studs restoration and modernization completed in late 2021, pairing modern luxury amenities with that “rocketeer” look. This trailer is optimized for boondocking off grid in full luxury. Among modern trailers she is very light—3200lbs dry weight, and about 3700 lbs fully loaded (food, water, clothes, everything!). She can be towed by a mid-size truck or SUV and comes with a Curt Tru-track weight distribution system for level, no-sway handling.
Everything on this trailer has been repaired, replaced, or refurbished: new torsion axle/wheels/hitch, all new electrical, plumbing, holding tanks, propane system (w/ polished aluminum cylinders), appliances and modern safety features. Her exterior shell has been sealed and professionally painted silver for a vintage look without the maintenance of a polished trailer. Full interior renovation adding wet bath, exterior shower, custom furniture, inboard AC/heat pump, new cushions and upholstery—but keeping all the original interior items that that make this vintage so cool.
This trailer is tiny, cozy and has an extremely versatile floor plan. She sleeps 4 in comfort in multiple configurations and has a propane fireplace, a marine DC refrigerator, full galley and range, on-demand water heater, a new vintage-style awning, 275 W of solar power, a modern 200 a-hr Lithium-ion electrical system, drinking water sanitation, an outdoor firepit, built-in media center with movie projector—too much to list here.
