    We picked up a little 59 Shasta towards the end of this past Summer… very good shape, very little water damage, but the usual bumps and dings…. I never really got to it this year. but pulled off the eyebrows and gave them a quick buff n rub.. came out mint.The interior is 100% correct and has never been messed with… a few floor tiles are gone.. but thats it.The chassis is excellent and no rot.I found out I am the 3rd owner since 59. which is very cool….I plan a re-paint and fix the dings in the spring…. I was quite surprised when all electrical and brakes worked when picking it up.Just needs some good ole elbow grease and attention.Plans are to haul it behind my 57 Ford….

    My ex-boss just picked up this '58 Shasta for a grand; looks all original inside. A few dings (especially the fins :() and a little water damage below the rear window but otherwise decent:

    Geez, I want a small Shasta style trailer SO bad but I've no place to store it. But it's nice to know there are some good quality, yet fairly low-buck ones still for sale if and when my vintage RV experience happens. Gary

    You guys really have some nice trailers . After my Shoebox is "done" (it'll never really be done) , I'm going to start saving my sheckles for a small old camper - most likely a teardrop - to tow behind it . Until then , I'll just keep dreamin' !
     
  11. I know what you mean Allen,I have one and I'm still dreaming.:rolleyes: HRP
