Home built Awning!

I am building an awning for our 1966 Kit companion. Cost around $150.00. It is 11 feet long by 8 feet wide. Looks almost original, doesn't require ropes to hold it down and stores in the trailer. I will post pictues soon!  Almost every thing was bought at a local hard ware store including the awning material. Sounds interesting? Pictures's soon.

Added 12 volt system to my 1966 Kit companion!

When my wife and I bought our trailer last year. I noticed that it had 12 volt lights already added to it. What it didn't have was a converter!

First thing I did was take the batterys out of the inside of the trailer. Next I went to our local RV store to find out how I could hook up the 12 volt system correctly, He was a great help!…

1964 17 foot Silver streak (bad floor) How do I replace the complete floor!

I found a silver streak trailer that has a dry rotted floor. I can buy it reasonable but my concern is replacing the floor without taking every rivit out of every panel to get to it. Interior is great, walls are good, anyone know of a good easy way to repair this problem! Silver streak is a cousin of air stream. Thanks Wade!

How to find a Vintage Trailer at a reasonable price.

If you bought a vintage trailer or are looking for one you already know how hard and frustrating it can be. We have all looked on Craigslist either finding a good buy only to find out it is beyond repair or priced way beyond our budget. My wife and I found our 1966 kit for 500.00 and actually were looking at 3 different trailers at the same time. All were priced between 500.00 and a 1000.00 I might add none of these were advertised at all. Sound's interesting huh! My wife thought I was crazy…
