Pre-Chino move, this lightly used 1971 Silver Streak Deluxe Rocket encompasses the rich aeronautic history and excellence of Airstream, minus the high premium. At its height, Silver Streak’s Chino factory never exceeded more than six trailers a week — and with no holidays, that adds up to a little over three hundred trailers a year.
To say Silver Streaks are rare is an understatement, and with only one on our lot of multiple silver bullets that point is driven home. It wasn’t a lack of demand that caused these low production numbers, but an initiative of quality manufacturing which resulted in slow fabrication. That excellence-first attitude defines trailers of the late 60’s and early 70’s, considered the golden era, and is something that’s respected at RePairadise.
We took this Deluxe Rocket, Model #28, with original documentation and clear title, and went over it with a fine tooth comb. The result is a fully functioning sub-30ft trailer ready to become an instant mother-n-law addition, turn a southern tier plot into an inviting get away, or travel the continent behind a modern SUV. As it may seem large, Silver Streak bumper-pulls were designed with yesteryears’ station wagons intended as tow vehicles.
This trailer spent the majority of its life in Southern Utah, meaning it’s lived in a very dry climate with a lack of deterioration and corrosion that’s to be appreciated.
