Sequoia is a 1973 Wilderness travel trailer who has only been owned by 2 people in her 50 years of adventuring. She is exceptionally well kept and has been loaded with updates and loving touches, renovated by American Travelers Restorations (see complete makeover here: www.americantravelersrestorations.com/1973-wilderness). I was inspired by Ralph Lauren's rustic western designed trailers, and this trailer definitely carries a similar vibe. I am deeply emotionally attached to this trailer, it was a dream of mine to buy an old shell and rebuild it, with original appliances. And that is exactly what I did. Over the past 4 years I have put over $20,000 of renovations into Sequoia, maintained the old appliances, and upgraded certain aspects to suit my family's lifestyle. Sequoia has been featured in Vintage Camper Trailers Magazine (Issue #35), and has proven to be a show-stopper, I can't tell you how often I am stopped and asked about her, and people are enamored with the redesign. I don't really want to sell her, but we are saving to buy a home and this will be our nest egg! WILL NOT BUDGE ON PRICING, I have spent over $30,000 to get Sequoia where she is, DO NOT CONTACT UNLESS SERIOUS INQUIRY.

A few additional things...
I have removed the toilet but all the toilet plumbing pipes are in-tact and ready for a new one if desired. I used a porto-potty instead, so we didn't have to deal with hauling a nasty septic tank. The oven and stovetop are made by Dometic (1973) and work great, but the are very finicky and require maintenance by someone familiar with vintage gas stoves. I removed the heating unit as it had not been used in 40 years, we use a portable electric heating unit and it gets plenty warm! The screens and curtain-rods were damaged during a break-in at a storage facility, and the facility refused to cover damages - they are warped but in working order. The folding table and countertops I had intended to replace with live-edge wood, but I haven't had the finances to continue this project, both are in working order but have signs of use. Cushions need to be replaced, they are original and super comfy, but the fabric and foam have begun to degrade. Hot water heater needs to be replaced. The tongue could use a foot and stabilizers, but we have made-due without thus far, crank is manual.
