Bob, Sharp old motorhome. I knew they made SS
Class A motor homes but didn"t know they mad a class C. You might give Bob Ashby a call. Hes probably about as knowledgable as anyone on the SS, but hes not on the net. His number is 936-539-1692 in Conroe Texas. See the history on the SS site

Hello,

Take a look in the "Ads" section of this website and you will find an ad from a February 1975 Trailer Life that I scanned. It shows a Silver Streak Travel Trailer next to a Class "A" Silver Streak Motorhome.

Howdy all!!
I just found this site and was glad I did. As you all know there is very
little out there for us in the way of info about SS. I have a 1975 SS
Class A that I bought a couple of years ago and have been looking for
info ever since. Bob Ashby has of course been a great help. I did meet
another couple from Mass that owns the sister to my rig, we all got
together in the black hills last year for a little get together, Duane
and Fran have been godsends when it came to some of the idiosincrities
of the class A, I would love to hear from other class c or especially
class A owners. I have been told that 1975 was the only year the class A
was built and that there were only 15 built? Ours sits on a M-500 Dodge
chassis with a 440 for power, lots of power but the motor runs very hot!
(probably not enough air flow around the motor) We always attract a
crowd when we camp and we love the classic lines of the SS. At times I
have been tempted to trade the motor home for a nice pull trailer SS but
have not decided what I want to do.
I'm just glad to be the owner of such a wonderfull piece of history.

Hi Tom
Great site!!
There sure isn't allot of info out there on our campers! I have talked
with Bob as well and was hoping to find someone with even more
knowledge about the Silver Streak but that has been difficult. I own
(I'm told ) 1 Of only 15 Class A's ever built. They were only built in
1975. I had hoped to find a manual but as you say they didn't make any
except for the new trailers, If you come across an old owners manual and
would care to sell it please keep me in mind. If you would like more
pics please let me know. I know of three of these still in service, Mine
and one belonging to Duane and Fran Irving in Maryland. I also had a
friend spot one in use by a construction company in Texas.

Interesting enough, I just noticed in your 1975 ad the Class A doesn't
have the emblems on the front hatches like mine and Duane's do.
Thanks again for the great site.

Hello fellow SS owners - just found this board! Sherry and I have a "cream puff" 1965 21' SS with a blonde oak interior. We are the third proud owners of this classic cruiser, although ours is a travel trailer, not a motorhome. Does anybody know of a SS travel trailer owner they can put me in touch with? I am interested in obtaining a copy of an owners manual (if there was one with the sale of the units) and particularly in learning the details on the numerous water valves in the plumbing system. I will be very grateful for any help offered. Best wishes from Arizona.

Hi Jack,
Probably there was no owners manual. Bob Ashby in Conroe, Texas is your best source of information, but he is not on the internet. His phone number is elsewhere on this message board, but he can be hard to get in touch with.

I would be interested in knowing where we could find information on the internet about Silver Streak travel trailers. If anyone knows of a web site that would be great.

Somebody was saying that there where only 15 silver streak class A motorhomes built is this true? I have the oportunity to buy one for 800 dollars and I was wondering if this was a good deal?

Hi all!
we are the proud second owners of a '68 silverstreak motorhome with a Hanomag cab. We believe it was custom-ordered but are not positive. the spare tires ride on top of the cab. I will post a picture if i can figure out how!

I have recently purchased a 1972 Silver Streak 28 foot long travel trailer. What company sells parts for these trailers? I am in need for the forward/front astrodome up on the roof and a few other goodies.

By Tom Patterson on Wednesday, June 23, 2004 - 09:30 am:

You might try asking on the Silver Streak e-mail list. Someone on the list might know.

By brian on Wednesday, June 23, 2004 - 07:22 pm:

i have all the papers the class a came with including sales bochures for the trailers with floor plan options for both there is no actual manual for the motor home just seperate instructions from all the appliances such as heaters microwave even awning from the seperate supliers
there is a small manual from the dodge factory doesnt realy tell that much

Dear Brian,

Where are you located at and where did you find your Class A motorhome? Have you had it for very long? Do you know the year it was made? Do you have the Onan 5000 watt generator too?

Please email me if you like,

By Jim Jarzabek on Saturday, July 17, 2004 - 12:07 pm:

Dear Brian,

I have heard that only 12 Class A motorhomes were made between 1974 and 1978. However, every person I have had contact with has either a 1975 or a 1976 Class A. I have not heard of a 1974, 1977, or 1978 Class A. How many miles do you have on your motorhome ?

By Stevet on Friday, August 13, 2004 - 12:03 pm:

I have a 1974 30 foot class A motorhome it looks just like the two 1975s in the picture it is a dodge chassis and in very good shape. I would be interested in selling it for the right price.
