Her name is Betty Lou. She has the iconic 13 panels and the rare front kitchen and interior dinette. Manufactured in Ohio. There were 133 made. Less than 15 of those still exist. Fewer yet, if any in this exemplary restored original condition. Winner of Best 1950's Platinum Award at the Vintage Airstream Club Concours D' Elegance at the 2016 WBCCI International Rally in Lewisburg West Virginia. This unit also won the Gold Award (cannot win Platinum twice) at the 2019 WBCCI International Rally Vintage Airstream Club Concours in 2019 at the Meadow Event Park. She also won Best 1950s in Show (of all makes and models) at the Southern Vintage Trailer Friends in Jeckyl Island Georgia.

A previous owner was John McAfee, founder of the McAfee Anti Virus Software Company. It has spent the majority of its life in the dry climate of the Southwestern part of the country. It was photographed in Money Magazine in 2015. In the photos I have included a picture of the original owners in 1956. I purchased this unit in 2014. It has been meticulously restored and maintained by Capital City Customs in Raleigh, NC. Capital City Customs is a certified Airstream Service Center specializing in world class Airstream Restoration.
