This is currently the oldest known surviving post war built Airstream - the 5th or 6th one built (depending on if serial numbers started at 1000 or 1001). It was built in June of '47, likely partly by the founder himself, right after production resumed after WWII, and a full year before Wally Byam, Airstream's founder, formally formed the Airstream Corporation.
After getting the trailer to Wisconsin, we recreated the famous 1947 photograph where Alfred Letourner pulled this exact Airstream Liner model (possible even this very trailer) with a Bicycle for a marketing program. The stunt proved so popular showing the light weight and efficiency of the Airstream trailer, the company went on to use the image as a logo badge on trailers made for the next several decades. We'll be posting video of that fun project soon.
