sleeping beauty home safe and sound. New pics!!

The trip involved an overnight stay due to bad weather and my lights stopped working!!! Even though I live in Oklahoma, I have to admit that this state has the worst roads of all 50 states. Even with that challenge, she pulled real well and this was without my brakes hooked up yet. Gas mileage was good. Had to park her at the in-laws(out in the country) for now, more room than my backyard!
Anyhow, the plan is to take my time. will more than likely gut, and then design. Most are placing a new kitchen up front, shower/toilet midsection and bedroom in back. Above all, I am not going to rush this!!

Guess you received a lot of comments along the way home. Your project has a good foundation, and eye catching too. You are right, those tires do appear too small for the trailer.

I love to see those lovely old trailers on the road.

We lived in Chouteau for a bit over 2 years and I can attest to the roads in Oklahoma. Parts of Hwy 412 make a cow trail look like a silk lined road.

Glad you found a welder to install the necessary parts for the new axle. Now you will know that the axle is solid and will not cause you any future concerns.
The outside looks to be in very good condition. The inside looks good but definitely dated.
Sounds like you have made some solid plans for what you want to do to the inside.

Wow that's neat. Haven't seen a roll-away-bed in years. Just courious, what type of heat was provided in 1948?

Nice job on getting it home! We're in the "thinking stage" of what to do with our Manor. Lots of info out there on all systems - am enjoying doing the research. We'll have to share ideas.

Definitely new birchwood and wiring upgrade. The biggest challenge will be the bathroom, since this model did not have one.

Will do. Going to attempt to carefully remove original panelling and furniture. Might need it later.

They used an oil furnace in the front. Mine was missing. I believe some even had these furnaces in the floor, but on this model it was free standing.

Please try and salvage as much of the original cabinetry as you can, the styling of it was partly what gave those old trailer their interior charm. What is that sink made of? It looks like an old Porcelain coated cast iron sink (Lasts for close to forever).

If ya totally modernize the inside, you'll lose the effect of having such a vintaged year.
