 +===== 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.
