(9/24...update...We think it is a 1964 FleetCraft, based on an other exact trailer w/o the back chopped off)
I think the whole back end has been replaced, as the aluminum is not the same pattern as the front & sides, plus the make-shift metal band across the top was put on, rather crudely I might add, to cover the joining of the roof & back side.
But as I always say...Show No Fear!
The front and sides look fairly decent considering this old gal is about 40 + years old.
And it actually has a decent amount of storage space considering it's small size.
I love the aqua in the ice box, and no musty moldy smells anywhere. Whew!
It has cupboards above the sink as well as under....
The original Bankette/Dinette was here and most likely there was a small kids bunk up above, but who ever had this trailer removed the Bankette & put in a Full size bed....I threw out the bed foundation & mattress....I will re-frame this area and convert it into a twin bed/sofa and then on the wall just adjacent I will install a hinged table top that can be in a closed position when not in use and when I want to dine in my trailer I can flip it down. I have a cute little portable chair that will fit perfect in this spot.
I will buy a Futon mattress to fit on the Sofa/Bed like I did in my Scotty trailer.
More cupboard space & windows...Oh, & I have the perfect cute little Chandelier to fit in the kitchen area! SCORE!
Again, more storage, and the oven/stove is clean as a whistle. All I need to do is buy 3 stove rings to go on top of the stove burners.
All in All, I am really delighted....The underside has been totally rebuilt and in great shape....no saggies or squishies...
There is a small crack in the narrow front window that can be repaired with glass putty/sealer.
It also has new insulation in the walls...
I will have to do some crafty cosmetic work to cover up the "uglies" but there is very minimal water damage, I did find some light staining in 3 spots, but the wood was not damaged by it....That's what water seal & paint are for.
So,,,I am thinking this will be my "Farm Girl" trailer, using the "Whistle Stop Cafe'...Fried Green Tomatos" as my country theme...I think cheery red/yellow/green & blues will be the perfect color tones.
I will paint the walls a cheery yellow & use the other 3 colors as accent...Thank goodness I collect vintage linens, doillies & aprons....cuz I am going to need them for this "Country Farm Girl Cutie".
Well, now I am off to go play in my new play house......come join me, I will put on a pot of tea and slice up a piece of Apple Pie for us.
