1955 Airstream 30’ Commodore Vanderbilt
Airstream manufactured only 32 of the 30’ length trailers in 1955 at the Ohio plant, (per Airstream club historian). It appears this is the only intact 30’ trailer remaining from that year and the only one of this model. Comes with all original manuals and an original sales flyer.
We are the 3rd owners (2nd had from 1961 to 2003 and kept indoors).
Sleeps 4. Twin beds with rear full bath (huge). Pull out couch in living room.
Trailer tows easy. It weighs 4,000lbs empty. We used a weight distribution hitch only. We never used or felt the need for sway bars.
All original except for the 60’s era Dometic M-52 gas/electric fridge (clean and working). Original Payne electric water heater, works great, will hold heat overnight with power off. Complete original working stove and oven with porcelain and grates in good condition. Original stove vent fan works great.
Bath has original toilet and ¾ tub (very rare according to enthusiasts), sliding wood doors at bath entry and bedroom entry (also rare).
Twin beds have original, thick, “Airfoam” Airstream mattresses in good condition. 2 huge wardrobes and plenty of storage.
Original radiant furnace (works with a blower and duct added by PO). Auxiliary radiant furnace added by PO in bath.
All interior lights work (110v and 12v), original with shades in great condition. Has original Veritas gas yacht lantern in great shape with globe. Original folding table with custom drop leaf top and Leg-O-Matic chairs. All wood work is original, has a Weldwood brand decal still present.
Custom 20’ vinyl awning used less than a dozen times. Original, rotating “UFO” tv antenna. Has aluminum LP tanks with new regulator/selector. New marker lights. Original Bargman taillights in GC. New Door gasket set included. Original door handle in GC. Original Hehr roof vents in great shape, complete and working, center vent has optional 110V fan and rare skylight. All windows are complete and operational with newer glass seals.
Power tongue jack. 15” Dexter brand heavy duty wheels (newer baby moon hubcaps) with Goodyear marathon radials. Original Hadco heavy-duty axles. Original Zolatone paint is in fantastic shape.
