What GVR is suppose to look like!

Aljo Trailers 1958-61. Modernistic/Winnebago Corp.
Ok, someday she will look like one of these cuties,,,but for now, she is as naked as a Jay Bird!Gary has started cutting out the wood for the new frame and support joints...unfortunately he had to work today so he could not go out to the "Man Cave" and play this morning, but he gets off early and I suspect he will be out there, with the heater on, his favorite C&W radio station blasting and having fun with his tools.

"Give a man a hammer and saw & he will grouse about having to work on a project...give him some power tools and he will go play in the workshop all day!" lol!

Actually the framing should go up quite fast, then it's time to order assorted pieces, trims & what ever that is not worth putting back into the trailer. We found a great source to order parts from. It's a company in Oregon, called Interstate Metal Fabricators Inc.
You can download their catalog or contact them by email or phone:
Well while I am thinking about it, I should thumb through my catalog & start pricing the items I need to buy.

  2. I just bought a little, old trailer and we are beginning the restoration process. Thank you for recommending Interstate Metals. A Google search revealed that they are just a few miles from where my sweetheart works! So convenient and we appreciate your recommendation.

    Love your blog - your trailer has been an inspiration to us, even before I bought mine.
