#15 - Mystery Receptacle
Many 1950s & 1960s Airstreams have an odd outlet about window height on the curb side of the trailer. It has a screw-on cap and a little chain. Many people mistake this for a 110V convenience outlet, but it is really a place to attach a removable porch light. These removable porch lights are extinct, but every once in a while, one will turn up on eBay. I found this new old stock receptable on eBay this week. Now all I need is the light. They came in several different styles. Keep your eye out for me!
