Down on the Used Car Lot

We so need this.
I've ridden past it, sitting pretty along Coast Highway in Leucadia, but today I had the time to stop and take some pix. It's a 1955 Airstream "18 Footer" model. that's been updated and buffed to a mirror finish.
Going inside reveals some fun styling by the restorer.

Bright and cheery yellow (although I would have greatly preferred the original, natural varnished wood), it's been done up in a mid-century modern theme with many period pieces placed throughout.
It'll sleep four, has a small bathroom with porta-potti and a rooftop A/C for those nights when it's unbearably hot.
Four-burner stove, solar panels on the roof, etc.
And best of all, the curb weight is only 2000 lbs, making it easily towed behind our VW Van (towing capacity 4400 lbs). Now if I could only come up with a spare $17,000.
