That's the perfect trailer to tow behind that truck !
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….
i love the old campers here is mine and my j and camping with the fam its a homemade built in 1943
DAM! Jeff ya done good on this score...I like it.
Damn! That's in great shape. Hard to find them like that anymore. Congrats!
Yes sir,Jeff's is a cream puff compared to my old '56 Shasta...I've started taking it apart but I got a long way to go. HRP
Wow, talk about a great find! Color me jealous. Gary
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' !
I know what you mean Allen,I have one and I'm still dreaming. HRP
Vintage Cars, Campers & Swap Meet....... Not that kind of swap meet Pappy!
This may help some vintage Shasta owners,… if your wings are beat, this fella will sell you a new pair for 2-300 bucks… his work is very nice.
