If you haven't considered one of the small Airstreams (16' or17'), you might
want to put that into your mix of ideas. There's an email discussion group
(500+ members) like this one for owners and restorers of 25 year old (and
older) trailers. It's called the Vintage Airstream Club. Let me know if
you're interested and I'll provide the address. Also, there are a dozen or
more URLs with Airstream classifieds if you'd like to begin searching by
looking at pictures, prices and floor plans.
As for amenities, they usually include most of those that were in your
"Reevey," although on a smaller scale. If you buy a restored Vintage
Airstream, there's an excellent chance of it being attractive and as road
worthy as anything you might buy brand new (but for a whole lot less money
and a whole lot more camaraderie).
By all means, look at the Tony's Travco website and anything else you can
drum up. There are hundreds of options. If you choose an Airstream Bambi or
Airstream Caravel, your truck will handle it better and will need fewer
modifications than if you choose a larger trailer weighing close to your
1975 Mercury Wagon 460CID with factory trailer towing package
1967 22' Airstream Safari weighing more than 4,000 pounds.
