Please no e-mails or texts. Please read entire ad before you call.
The first few pictures you see were taken December 31, 2003. The rest are in the present, now 21-22 years later, November 2020. I have owned this rare travel trailer for 22 years. They say that there are only very few of these Fiber Stream trailers left on the planet.
This rare trailer has some fixable issues and I am selling it for the person that wants to fix the issues and have the rarest, the best of the best when it comes to lightweight fiberglass trailers.
I have provided the first pictures the way it looked when we took it to Padre Island back in 2003. We had a blast. I can think of only four or five times that we used it, over all those years.

It has not been smoked in and no pets have been in it.
This camper has the original carpet and original cushion covers. All cabinet doors and slides are in excellent shape. The unit shows very little wear, if any, inside.
The fiberglass outside needs to be washed. The secret is a green scrubby sponge with water only and it will look like new.
The vinyl white plastic cover on the walls and ceiling is sagging. The fix: Take it all off and varnish the beautiful wood underneath or paint it white.
The grey and black water tanks need to be replaced.
The two gas bottles need to be replaced. It comes with a fiberglass bottle cover (not original equipment).
It has a cracked area in the front behind where the gas bottles set. It needs to be fixed or covered with a new piece of camper fiberglass.
There are soft spots in the ceiling around the roof vents and other areas.
The back fender that is fiberglass is broken and needs to be re-fiberglassed back together. It is rare to even have the original one on it.
I am asking only $4,925 for this rare beautiful camper. That is about 1/3 to 1/4 cost of a 2020 fiberglass equivalent. I request a $500 cash non-refundable deposit because I will have a hundred want-to-buy buyers. The balance of $4,425, a real give-away price, is to also be paid in cash upon pick up.
The buyer has 14 days to pick up the camper. If the buyer fails to pay the balance, for any reason, he or she forfeits the $500 deposit and I will sell the coach to the next person that has put up a $500 deposit. If the first buyer completes the sale, those that got in line and put up a deposit, their money will be quickly returned.

answering machine. Feel free to leave a message
and I will return your call asap.
HISTORY OF FIBER STREAM, BY A
YOUNG COUPLE THAT POSTED ON WEB.
"We knew nothing about Fiber Stream campers when we stumbled upon the Craigslist post that led us to our 'home on wheels'. However, the breadbox shape, bubbled front window, and dual axle immediately caught our attention and intrigued us to do some research.
We purchased our 1985 Fiber Stream without hesitation and have been thrilled to be part of this small community of owners and enthusiasts.
The Fiber Stream Company began in San Diego in 1975 individually manufactured by three people – a husband/wife team (the Lenards) and one additional employee. The company had a short 11 year run and relocated two times (Mira Loma & Fontana). Its unknown how many Fiber Streams were produced throughout the years, but the number must be small – we’ve yet to see another in person.
The history of this company is sparse. Details can be found among fiberglass camper message boards and deep internet surfing. We’ve found that FiberglassRV has the most active and helpful community.
Fiber Stream only made one model in their 11 years of manufacturing; a 16 foot, dual axle camper made from a fiberglass “molded-in-one-piece” body. The company’s 1985 advertisement reads, “Made for those that want class with economy”.
The campers have a front end, U-shaped dinette that converts into a king size bed. A bathroom with shower and full size closet are located at the opposite end of the camper. The kitchen consists of a range with oven and double stainless steal sink. There are four larger windows in the living area, and one small window in the bathroom."
