-===== Streamline Travel Trailer ====== 
-I've learned the two partners of Streamline broke off from Airstream, and started Silver Streak, then one decided to use 3 rails foundation instead of just two to go on his own to create Streamline, with belly pan and more support. Some say the best made, but like a Ford, or Chevy man, that might be a personal concept. (Two plants were in production) lifetime warranty, was upheld by the placememt of parts in a warehouse in Elkhart, Indiana, supposedly. It was thought the CA plant had a higher grade of aluminum, so these tend to polish up better...godzilla2@peoplepc.com

-I have a 1972 Streamline Regency (24'). What I have noticed is that it does not have a window next to the entry door like some of the other models. I have only seen one other Regency model online. bataylor66@gmail.com 
-===== Interiors ===== 
-The most striking feature is the gold stripe and trim on the streamliner,​ can be seen from a distace to be what it is   ​godzilla2@peoplepc.com 
- 
-===== Standard Features ===== 
- 
-As oppossed to Airstream & many other trailers, the Streamline (at least the 66 model) did not come with a power inverter for the 12 volt systems. ​ Came with 2 seperate systems, 1 ac & 1 dc.  Most of the light fixtures have 2 seperate lights & switches, 1 for each system. ​ Trailer battery is charged by the tow vehicle when hooked to it. 
-Just purchased a 59 Streamline Regency and would like to know the worth . 
-===== Unique features/​Options ===== 
-The pre-70s Streamlines,​ at least, were designed with Light Weight in mind. The designers knew that a lighter trailer meant better gas mileage for the owner'​s tow vehicle. ​ 
-The cabinets are made of aluminum frames, with verticals and crossmembers bent in ways and riveted together, to create the cabinets, make them structurally strong, yet very light. 
-They are designed in a mannner to make the cabinets somewhat Modular, meaning they can be rearranged, moved 
-around in different configurations,​ as long as you find a way to enclose end walls. They also are pop riveted 
-onto the wall originally, so can be removed from the trailer initally, then screwed back onto the walls with 
-screws. ​ 
-The famous "three rail frame" that distinguished the Streamlines,​ is partly true! The 2 heavy steel C beams that comprise the two outsidemost frame rails, go all the way from the front, where they are curved and bent in to 
-form the tongue. The center rail is actually not solid-- it is made of Ibeam sections and a tubular section-- 
-but the center beam ends at the wheelwell boxframe. The entire frame after the wheelwells, is the two outside frame rails only 
-  
-I know all this because I am renovating a 64 Countess. It got all new floor and is being rewired with updated wiring for a converter, more DC and AC outlets, and ultimately, Solar panels on the roof. The aluminum cabinets 
-are beautiful things, very light and I intend to keep those. 
-BTW a Countess is 26 foot overall but only weighs 3500 pounds as originally equipped! A similar 26 foot trailer manufactured today will weigh anyplace from 5000 to 7000 pounds. Quite a difference.
