Your dream trailer?

Actually this was my dream trailer, it's a 1956 pleasure craft 16ft.

We rescued it from under a chestnut tree where it sat for 30 years!
The body is amazingly straight and even the original turqouise paint was preserved under the inch of green moss and dirt.


It is the most AMAZING trailer I have seen, but my loss could be your gain if your up for a project. My husband isn't and I am reluctantly putting it for sale, because it deserves to be loved and restored by someone who will appreciate it's magnificent self as much as I do.







So I hope you didn't get tooo excited, because as you can see it needs SOME work.


Actually alot of work , the back half of the trailer needs complete restoration , the front half is solid and dry with the original rounded corners and beautiful birch.









The rear corner kitchen could be amazing. This trailer has ALL of the original parts, from the princess stove to the marvel fridge




It has the original door , but needs new screen:))LOL!









So if you want an awesome piece of american history and are up for a restoration this could be the one you've been waiting for!



$995.00 as istitle in hand

  1. Oh wow, that's a great price! This is a dream for my husband and I but first, we need to move from So Cal to somewhere cheaper (planning on FL) then we can pursue. But something like this is exactly what we're hoping for:)

  2. So...how much would one expect to invest in a little dream such as this, needing so much work?

  4. I am new to this, but I am in love! I am in Colorado Springs and just found a place in Canon City that restores www.retrorestoration.com. Can I ask, does this floor plan include a toilet closet, and how many will it sleep? Thanks!! I wouldn't be able to pick up until spring break, but I can buy now.

  9. hi! i'm very interested in vintage campers (i just did a post about them!) my husband, not so much, but that's not really important! what area are you located in? i'm assuming the northwest coast, so that's a distance for me (i'm in ohio, but i have a friend up in washington.) but anyway, i will be interested in making a purchase sometime in the upcoming year, and i'm just trying to do my research and hook up with as many contacts as possible in the meantime. if you can give me any info or good advice, it would be awesome! if you're too swamped or have no suggestions, i understand. at any rate, i like your blog! helpful info! my email is jesbergerd@yahoo.com. thanx a lot!

  12. Hi Amelia, I am so excited!!! Finding your blog is like discovering a gold mine. I have been talking travel trailer to my husband for years, and he is finally starting to catch the bug. Your blog just might be what it will take to reel him in. Your blog is fantastically mind-blowing. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! Your newest follower, Connie :) Now, comes where I'm going to ask for a favor, please visit my blog, and I do hope that you will follow, but more than that I'm going to ask if you would follow my husband's blog. He is a brand new blogger . . . and only has a few followers. He gets so excited when he gets a follower, that he gets into visiting, following and digging into their posts and archives. I really want him to see how absolutely gorgeous your trailers are. I would truly appreciate this, and I do hope I'm not asking to much. Have a wonderful day. Here is a link to his blog:
