Very nice, and an amazingly 'modern' outside styling. Love to see pics of the interior. Looks to be fitted with a wood burning stove?


I'd bet their success is the same thing driving today's RV/TT market - lots of folks realizing, in the economic hard times, it's a lot cheaper to live in an RV/TT than own/rent a house or apartment.

Here we go

Sorry for the delay. Had to resize for posting. This trailer was a first for the company as it had electric brakes. This coach was restored to era period furnishings and was being towed by a period correct vehicle.

More interior pic's

Sorry for the door screen in the way but this trailer was locked for protection. This trailer just looked cozzy as heck. Even had a warming furnace. Note smoke stack in previos post. If your travels ever take you near Kalamazoo Michigan take the 20 minute drive to Hickory Corners to "Gilmore Car Museum" you will not regreat it. Rated as one of the top ten car museums in the country. View the museum at this link. http://www.gilmorecarmuseum.org/

If I am not mistaken that is a LaSelle (sp) pulling the trailer isn't it?
