  1. Hi-
    Hope you can help me. I own a Aljo 1960 or 61, 1500X. I can’t find a thing on the internet about this trailer. I’ve told it is one of 100 built by Modernistic Industries, Gardena CA and would like to verify this. hope you can help!

  2. i have been told that in order to be able to use a travel trailer in alot of rv parks that it has to be certified as vintage however have not been able to find any information on how to go about getting it certified. any help would be appreciated.

  3. I have a 1951 Silver Streak Clipper. It is fully vintage complete with a full bath in the front. I would appreciate thoughts on its restoration
    1) value of restoring it to vintage origional condition
    2) thoughts on keeping all the “cool vintage stuff” but modifying it with greater usability such as removing the bath and placing a dinette in its place
    3) a source to find aluminum molding that seals around the outside (alien eye) windows

  5. Hi Gregory,

    I apologize that it took me so long to respond to your comment on the camper blog, by now you’ve probably already found the plastic molding for your starcraft tent trailer. I do have a really great supplier that you might try, if you still need it.

    Have you tried the link to Vintage Trailer Supply? They have a really nice website, I think you’ll have good luck there. If you have a chance to let me know, that would be great. If this doesn’t work out for you please come back to the blog and leave another comment. I hope you don’t mind but I modified your comment, so that you address and phone number don’t show up on the internet.

    Thanks for visiting the blog,
