I just stumbled across this guy! Owner thinks it’s a 1950s Kit promo model. Anyone have any insight at all ? I was really hoping to restore it but it might be too far gone and/or a complete money pit. Help!
I'm not sure it's a Kit. The roundish windows front and back don't match my friend's. This one has got a great shape. Is the interior complete and the appliances/sink still there? That's very important.
Also, those are house windows so you would have to re-frame and try to find 50s vintage windows which are hard to come by. If the trailer is gutted and the original windows went missing, it's worth very little as it sits. No title is a big deal in some states.
Thanks For your reply! Now I really wonder what it is. Here are a couple more photos. Unfortunately the other side of camper is worse.. huge house window. And it had one original upper in it but the rest was pretty much gutted for a fish house. So sad. But I’ve never seen anything like it! The round windows are so neat. I also noticed the seam down the middle.. maybe because it’s a prototype?
Many of the older 50s trailers had seams here and there-not sure which one you're talking about. It's definitely early 50s, maybe late 40s. Very cool exterior.
It might be a hard build to start out with as there's nothing left inside. There are so many trailer manufacturers out there, you may never figure out what it is. Take a look at photos on the 'net and contact Vintage Campers below:
