Barn find beauty! The barn was built around her in Arizona decades ago and used by the family as a guest house. Last year we removed it from the barn and towed it to Sacramento, CA. The trailer is clear and current with a California PTI registration (low registration cost.) The interior wood, body and undercarriage show no signs of water damage. The 110v electrical system all works. The refrigerator works. This trailer has been indoors most of it's 70 years. It is a blank slate ready for you to pick out the upholstery and paint. Body is 20'x 7.5'. I do not know the weight. A full size truck tows it fine.
This trailer is mostly original, unrestored, and shows signs of patina. Floors and drawers have been refurbished to reflect the patina of the period. The front seating area is new and has storage underneath. Green foam is new and ready for upholstery. The bench across the front of the trailer is 33" wide and 88" long. It is designed to have throw pillows across the back and be utilized as seating/lounge/bed. The backrest cushions fit the space where the table is to create a bed that is 66"x 88". There is a bedroom in the back that has a bed that is 48"x 79". (Photos are mocked up with an old foam mattress.) Interior height is 77.5".
The original countertop is painted (as it was originally). I will include the paint that I have left. The sink is not installed nor is any plumbing or fixture. (Fixture not included). Temporary taillights are included. The trailer only has the one original taillight! Masonite with Aluminum roof and steel windows. Windows are all good and function correctly. ‚ÄčOriginal keys included.
