Interior Images

Finally I've cleaned out the camper and added the much requested interior photos.

A few notes:

There is a bunk that fits a twin sized mattress above the dinette.

The bed in the back folds out into a bed that is larger than a twin but smaller than a full sized bed.

There is not an oven, there is a black small dorm sized refridgerator below the stove top.

Everything on the interior has stayed the same as the original camper except for the curtains we had made and any bedding/pillows and art we've added for decor.

I took a photo of the front hitch and propane tank so you can see how it looks painted with a can of silver rustoleum.

My husband does vinyl lettering and did the "63 Yellowstone" letter in the back in a retro font.

There are also a couple of photos of the ugly rippled water damage we will be fixing/replacing next year hopefully. And if you have any other questions/comments feel free to throw them my way.

How sweet & cozy. Makes you wonder the travels it has been through & the people who made memories in it over the decades.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Looks great, and reminds me of our first RV, a 1969 15' Shasta. It too needed a lot of love to get it back on the road. Wish I knew where the photos are.

I have an old Air Stream, late 60's I think. It needs to be gutted and gone through. One of these days when I don't have anything else to do.

Is that a propane light? Haven't seen one of those in years.

Very nice trailer. I've rebuilt 4 that size and I'm finding myself looking at them from time to time for #5.
What ever you do when your taking it apart purchase a good filter mask, not the paper ones and eye protection. An auto body painters suit with hood is a must also. Don't wear them twice and put them in a trash bag before you take your mask off. Wash your clothes and have a shower right away. You have not been sick until you have been sick from mold poisoning. Mine lasted six monthes and I still have lung problems years later.
Trust me it's cheap insurance.

Steve.

Steve i really appreciate that advice because in a few months we are going to take down the ceiling paneling from some water damage and insulate it. We will definitely heed that advice and anything else you will be able to tell us along the way.

Shara, take lots of photos as you go. They are a great help when it's going back together.
Enjoy the rebuild. The last one I did wound up as a pile of metal on one side of the trailer and a pile of cupboards on the floor and very little of the framing left in another pile. Photos helped with that one big time.
One more thought. Unless you are really lucky the little bit of rot you see will get bigger as you go. Water travels and rot follows on it's heels.
I spent 43 years restoring antique furniture so I am pretty good at putting jigsaw puzzles back together. People love taking furniture apart and then bring the bits to me to put back together.
Good luck and keep in touch. I have to go check Craigs RV list.

Steve.

Steve i still look on Craigslist b/c if i had the money (and land) i would likely hoard the smaller vintage campers. My dad is finding them all the time and linking me to the ones he is interested in because he loves ours so much.

I hear ya about the rot you see is just the tip of the iceburg because we live in a home built in 1912 and we've done all the modern restoration on it. It's scary what you see when you pull things back.

Based on the wetness that came in near the back bed near our heads when it was raining really hard over Thanksgiving, we have quite a bit of damage to clean out under there.
