Just bought a Shasta. Went to look at a truck with a friend and saw this trailer under the shed. Needless to say I own a trailer but my friend could not get the deal done on the truck.
I have sent the vin to Ross to help id the trailer. Title says 1963 Shasta but no model. From what I can find it looks to be an Astrodome.
In pretty decent shape but I plan to do some remodeling. I want it to pull behind a 1952 Suburban which is still under construction. Wife says too many projects but if you don't have projects what is there to look forward to.
Once I start remodel I will put together a build thread on it. (If someone can tell me how to insert a picture here I will so you can see it as found.)

Welcome to the forum. You will find answers to all of your questions here. Do yourself a favor and don't start tearing the interior apart before you fully understand the importance of the design and structural integrity of the cabinetry. I suggest you watch the videos that Larry Walsh has on his site @ Canned Ham Trailers. He is known on this site as Mobiltec. Also, I understand that there is a book of information available from Vikx at a cost of $25.00. I have heard it is packed with invaluable information for rebuilders.
Looks like a fairly nice clean trailer. You definitely need to see what's going on under the skin with all that water staining, especially the rear window where the PO installed that a/c unit, lotsa damage there.
Good thing is you have all original parts it seems, which is great for those like my husband and I who are doing a restoration as close to original as possible
You're in good hands with all the help you'll get from the great people on here.
I decided to get a vintage trailer so I could get out of my house more and see the country. How then did most of the trailer get in my house and the other parts of it get to see the country?
OK, Got it home safe and sound. Got to check the inside a little more. Even found the keys in a drawer. Previous owner did not know where they were. Also saw that it has the heater option. Now have to change tires back so I can have my flatbed back in order.
