My name is Ryan. I'm new to the Vintage Trailer world and was referred to this forum by Larry at Canned Ham.
My girlfriend and I are just getting started on rebuilding a 62 Aristocrat Lil Loafer. We want to do things right. It seems like the owners before us may have done some demo that took away the original structure a bit. Does anyone have links/pics/layouts of this model's original structure and floor plan?
Any resources would be really appreciated! Thanks!
Most of the "little" trailers had a front kitchen, sometimes a side closet and a dinette in back. That made into a bed with upper side cabinets and a bunk above the bed. Hopefully someone will have pix of the same trailer.
There are 2 versions, an early and late model. I don't know the cutoff year, but it's around '62. Earlier ones were rounded in front, bare aluminum skin, and kitchen and entry door were in rear. The newer version moved the kitchen to the front and squared off the body. The general layout was kitchen on one end, starting (from door) with the stove/oven, icebox, sink with door underneath, then closet and pantry on streetside. Gaucho bed was opposite kitchen with a little nightstand next to entry door. There were 2 tableleafs that fold away on each side. Some had a canvas bunk. Post pics if you can. That would help. If you google lil loafer, you will get lots of hits and interior shots.
