One of the features of the Silver Streaks, as well as other streamlined trailers in the late 1940's and early 1950's was the use of Plexiglas to create wide curved windows. Manufacturers touted the advantages of these large windows fore and aft, pointing to the fact that they created a see-through trailer, a definite advantage for a driver, especially when backing up or changing lanes. Like almost all trailers of this size and smaller, the Clipper had a dinette in the front that converted into an extra bed. To make the dinette area in this trailer more like a living room, the owners reconfigured the seating and it no longer converts into a bed. They reduced the size of the dinette table to a size that is more like a coffee table. For more formal dining, he coffee table pops out and a larger dining table is inserted.
