We have decided to sell our cute little trailer that we have named, “Sweetest Edna”. We named her after the lady we bought her from because she was genuinely nice and caring. She is such a cute little trailer and you will have many who will admire her as you drive down the road.
This trailer is 13 feet long, 6’6” wide and 7’7” tall. It weighs 1100lbs and has a hitch weight of about 130lbs, she is incredibly light and can be pulled by smaller vehicles. The seating area converts to a nice size bed for two adults and above is a bunk for two small children. She includes new hardwood flooring, shiplap on the walls, custom made cushions, a pink oven and new curtains. The tires are excellent and we recently had the axle serviced and the bearings packed. She does not have a bathroom, but has room for a port-a-potty in the closet.
Please call, text or email if you are interested. Asking $7400.00 OBO

1965 14 foot Vintage Forester Camper in great condition, roughly 1800 lbs. located in Denver CO. $10,000 Sale Price.
We purchased this adorable 1965 Forester and converted her into a fully operational mobile hair salon.
My clients always loved the look, feel and ease of this salon and I loved being a mobile hair stylist in this time of on site vendor businesses with a vintage look.
Here are the details for this one a kind hair salon camper we affectionately call "The Root". (A complete logo is also available for purchase with this camper.)
The Root is equipped with 22 gallon water tanks (fresh and grey water tanks) with 10 gallon hot water heater that offers cold and hot water from hand held water hose.
There is a custom designed shampoo bowl and professional grade stylist chair which is removable as well as lots of storage for tools, towels or anything you'd like to bring along.
We reused all the original hardware and cabinets (we build all new storage but re used the original cabinet doors and hardware). We replaced what was necessary but for the most part she has original windows.
There is propane heat but No A/C. We installed a battery fan in roof which does a nice job keeping the camper cool.
The camper has new custom exterior paint, new interior walls. No current water leaks. We did our best to seal any leaks after purchasing and have no current issues.
12V/120V Convertor charger box that handles all the electrical duties and charges the 12V battery when hooked up to shore power. Hot water heater is plumbed for easy winterizing with bypass valves installed. Dual propane tank with selector valve.
This is a completely custom and well loved camper. Please let me know if you have any questions.

1953 Vagabond Travel Trailer for sale, located in Park County, Colorado. I was told that the original owner was a circus clown who used it as a full-time traveling residence. It originally had two separate bedrooms and a bath between them. It has been opened up to be one continuous living space. I replaced a section of flooring under where the bathroom was and added parquet flooring thru-out. Some of the original birch paneling is in perfect shape. I replaced what was left of the base cabinets with cabinets and a working countertop. It was a great space for camping while my house was being built. All electrical, plumbing, and heating would need to be restored. There is some body damage on rear (see pictures), some leaking. The International Harvester refrigerator is original. There is no bath/shower area currently. Single axle. I have good marketable title. It needs work, but is not in bad shape for a 64-year-old well-made trailer. I have loved owning this beautiful piece of history and am hoping someone can restore it back to glory. I don’t know the weight, but it’s substantial. Asking $3,000.00. Please call Sonja at (303) 777-1009 or e-mail me at email@example.com
The Vintage Camper Trailers Book
Vintage camper trailers are a unique symbol of midcentury America that resonates with many people. This book introduces many of those people, along with the trailers they’ve lovingly maintained or restored. It includes hundreds of photographs of everything from fancy and comfortable trailers designed for glamping (glamorous camping), to trailers handed down through families across generations.
Paul and Caroline Lacitinola enjoy everything about vintage camper trailers, including rescuing, restoring, and rallying. In 2011, they began publishing the first U.S.-based magazine for collectors, restorers, and admirers of American-made camper trailers.

Silver Palaces Book
Vintage and modern-day photographs and advertisements add depth to Silver Palaces: America's Streamlined Trailers, a must-have book. It is historically significant for those who suffer from wanderlust, some fulfilled by owning and traveling with a "silver palace," or perhaps owning an older model that's been rebuilt and refurbished.
With a simple, historical beginning, the streamlined trailer got its start. There were challenges in making mobile spaces for living-could anyone make a self-contained streamlined trailer complete with full hookups? After World War II, housecars and motorhomes were seen everywhere-a result of aluminum becoming available for trailers. Once these silver palaces were on the road, RVs and travel associations became popular . . . and well, the end of the highway was never in sight.

Teardrops and Tiny Trailers Book
Buckle up as Douglas Keister takes you for a decidedly retro ride in the world of diminutive travel trailers in Teardrops and Tiny Trailers. The demand for vintage trailers-the smaller the better-has risen dramatically in recent years, with the most in-demand trailers being "teardrops," first manufactured in the 1930s and containing just indoor sleeping space and an outdoor exterior kitchen. Also profiled in the book are "canned ham" trailers, whose shape resembles the profile of a can of ham; small-size examples of America's most beloved vintage trailer, the Airstream; miniscule gypsy caravans in Europe; and fiberglass trailers made in Canada. Two hundred color photographs showcase these trailers' sleek exteriors, retro-styled interiors, and, in many cases, the restored classic cars that tow them. Teardrops and Tiny Trailers includes a resource section chock-full of places to locate vintage trailers, clubs to join, and rallies to attend.
Photographer/writer Douglas Keister has authored thirty-six critically acclaimed books. His books on classic recreational vehicles include Ready to Roll, Silver Palaces, and Mobile Mansions. In addition, he has authored twenty-five books on architecture, including Inside the Bungalow, Storybook Style, Red Tile Style, Classic Cottages, and Cottages. Keister also writes and illustrates magazine articles and contributes photographs and essays to dozens of magazines, newspapers, books, calendars, posters, and greeting cards worldwide.
