1950's Sears Pop-up

We were at Collegiate Peaks CG last weekend and had a very interesting neighbor. This interesting relic is now being used by the grand daughter of the original owner. The grandparents bought it new from the Sears catalog in the 50's, used it some and then stored it in the barn. Inside are bunk beds on each side consisting of steel poles with canvas stretch across them. The outside canvas is original and they fortunately stored the camper with the canvas nicely folded inside. The front and rear wall and hinged as well as the front porch wall allowing it to pretty much fold flat. It just received a new coat of turquoise paint and some work to the tongue. A very cool rare sight indeed that I thought the vintage crowd would appreciate.

If you didn't say what it was and a description of interior, I would of thought it was someone's prank of a portable outhouse.

That's pretty neat, with history to go with it.
