History of Sophie

Somewhere in the late 50's three employees of Airstream decided they could build a better trailer (we think they did), so they broke off and started Streamline trailers in El Monte, CA.  They named their coaches after royalty, with models such as Duke, Duchess and of course "Countess".  One of their trademarks is the unusual third tail light, reminiscent of the streamline trains of years past.  Streamline trailers were built until the mid 70's.  Sophie was built in 1966 and was built as a "park" model, meaning no holding tanks and more household type fixtures.  It was designed only to be used in a trailer park.

About three years ago we were contacted by a lady in Dallas that had inherited Sophie from her parents, who had purchased it when new.  Having sentimental attachment but no use for it, she thought it would be great if we could restore it and place it in our park.  In honor of Lois & George Endicott, they donated Sophie to the Starlite.

In 2016 Retro Restoration was able to complete the restoration of Sophie and it was placed into service in July.  We did do some obvious changes from original (everything inside... walls, cabinets, flooring was just beige), just for fun the changes were kept secret from the entire staff at the Starlite until it's debut.

1966 Streamline Countess

For a bit of glitz and glamour, take a look at Sophie.  Our latest addition to the park has a Hollywood theme throughout!

Sophie is 26' of polished, rivited construction (similar to an Airstream).  Outside features a patio cover with automatic party lights, and in Hollywood fashion a red carpet!

Picnic table and firepit/grill are included.

Centrally located in the park by several of our other vintage camper rentals making it a great choice for groups.

Step inside to a colorful interior with Cherrywood floor.  Sofa converts into a 3/4 full bed, suitable for two children or one adult (or two cozy adults).  

What Hollywood theme trailer would be complete without the famous Hollywood sign and a few Oscars?

Large kitchen with stove, full size fridge and a double sink.  

Dishes and cookware are provided, just bring your own food and drink!

Just past the kitchen area is the bedroom with a full size bed and a dresser.  

Bedroom features photos of several famous Hollywood celebrities of the past... can you name them all?

Any Hollywood star would have a dressing room and Sophie's is just beyond the bedroom.  Behind the door is actually a full bathroom with a house style toilet, full vanity and a shower.
