Wow ! even has AC ! thats not camping ! Nice rig
It's called 'camping', NOT 'roughing it'. After a hard day of fishing, a guy needs SOME comforts!
And if you expect your lady to join you.....
Not many of these around, 1966 Cruiseair, one of 7 ever built. My brother and I have been commissioned to restore it for the son and grandson of the original owner. Big project, I'm doing the mechanical and paint and body, brother is restoring the interior at his vintage trailer restoration shop.
Does anyone have a camper restoration shop recommendation near southern New Hampshire?
I am in the market for a nice 24-28 footer. My 19’ is getting kinda cramped.
I recently bought this 1964-24 footer, fished it out of the woods near my place. It's in remarkable condition, needs new appliances, but I got everything from a '99 class C motor home, with only 40,000 miles. Can't wait to work on it.
Skin looks great. One piece of advice. Start restoring at the potty. Tanks are often times an option on the early coaches.
Gray water was just dumped on the ground. They frown on that today.
Start researching it now, so you can build around the idea of installing tanks.
Nice score !!
I haven't delved into the holding tanks yet, it has a shower and tub. Trying to find an owners manual. I am going to tow it with my COE, and haul either a Track Roadster or 29 RPU inside the box. It should make travel to and from events a joy.
Sweet! There is a website called Tin Can Tourist that has a lot of info. Also Vintage Trailer Supply has a lot of stuff.
1954 Silver Streak Since I don't seem to like anything running! lol I thought I would try this and yet still haven't started lol. I purchase this down the street from Hilltop trailers was one of three purchased which gave rise to hilltop in 1957 they closed just before the Covid shut down and I bought it. They said their Grandfather and the Brunswick (Bowling) family bought these new. This one was traded back in 1969 by Brunswick with the condition it would stay in possession of Hilltop in case they wanted it back. It was damaged in a tornado in the 90's and left. Needs everything but mostly original inside. They restored in the 70's hence the ac and gold trim.
Marty, can you post a pic of the inside of your COE box?
It's just an empty box for now. Started as a bread truck, that I cut the front section off, and closed it in.
