We just picked up this '57 Jewel. need to be completely torn apart and redone. gonna rip into it this month.
1953 silver streak was gutted by the last owner but have had it redone. Not original but with two young boys hope to be having fun for a long time.
FREEBIE from a buddy's boss. Was just sitting in the middle of 10 acres in north Baldwin County. Told me to take it, so I did!
Needs a good bit of work but it's a great foundation. Think it's a 71'? Kid's are SUPER stoked to go camping at the beach later this summer.
One more with a very jealous 49' Ford in the background. "I'll finish you, I swear!"
that is sweet! what make is it? looks more like early '60's by the shape. more interior pics??
Shasta! The reason I say 71ish is because it's the same layout I've seen in the earlier models but they are more rounded on each end. Any help with ID is appreciated! I have all the pics here: http://public.fotki.com/invizibletouch/1971-shasta-travel-/
Im guessing 69-73 also. Too squared to be mid early 60's. Cool though. Congrats..
Here's one I scored on ebay a couple months ago.Its now taken apart for a slight refresher,and soon to be pulled behind my A sedan
Not vintage but here's my Teardrop i built a few years ago, Its a little bigger than normal at 10' long, 4' 6" wide.
Langy you did a exellent job, most home builts don't look right at least the ones if seen, yours does.
I agree, that teardrop is perfect!
Most homebuilts look, er well homebuilt. You did a great job and got the proportions just right. Who owns the wooden tear parked beside yours. I am finishing up a 41 Ford Woodie that would look great on the other end of that ones hitch.
Thanks guys here's some more pics you may like, The trad trailer next to mine is my best buddy's Brian Lucas, I don't think he comes here much but i will see if i can get him to post some pics of his.
love the teardrop! great work

They are a sharp bunch when it comes to trailers.
Here is my 1960 Oasis and my Belair. The camper was a fun winter project.
Heres an updated pic of my 1960 Shasta...just painted the light blue.....
Well, its been 2 months exactly, so time for a big fat BTTT..
Just cuz I love these little things.
We sold our 61 Scotty Silverside because at 11'8, it was just too small. And we found a 61 Yellowstone, which is 14' and nicer than the scotty was.
We bought it off a 77yr old guy. And its very well preserved. And we kept our red and white striped awning, so it'll look great on the yellowstone.
**Note, I already removed the goofy add-on awning track from the yellowstone and it has painted steel wheels with 55 pontiac hubcaps now.
I'll have better updated pics of it in a week or so, once we're done with it.
can we see the inside?
Here's the one I just bought. Not sure why. 1966 Northwest Coach. I have been stripping the paint off for a month and am still on one side! The top was an ant colony and the floor was rotten so it's half gutted now. Plans are two tone polish/paint and to the backyard for the kids playhouse. I will have less invested in this than buying a crap wooden playhouse from Sams!
call me chicken, but I wouldn't sleep in that...
