For some time now I have been daydreaming about getting a vintage travel trailer. I think it stems from my desire to escape. (*grins*) I periodically scour craigslist for them and I joined a group on facebook that is for enthusiasts like me. I even have a pinterest board that I have mainly dedicated to these lovely creatures, but, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would actually be able to get one. They can be rather pricey and hard to find, especially if they have been restored.
So, imagine my surprise when a friend recently told us that he had one of these cuties and said that we could have her if we wanted her! First of all, I was floored by his generosity, and secondly, I was over the moon excited!
The Mister says, before I get too excited though, we need to see her to see how much work would need to be done, or how much money we would need to sink into her. I say, money - schmoney, whats a few kazillion dollars when we can have one of these beauties and get the joy of bringing her back to her former glory. For some reason, he doesn't share my attitude.
Said friend gladly sent us a couple of photos of her and says we can come look at her anytime. Cross your fingers for me that she will not be a total loss on the inside and that she is structurally sound. Here she is, what do you think? Should we get her?
She is an early 1960s Shasta Astrodome. We aren't sure of the exact year yet but I think she may be a 61 or 62? And, she doesn't really look like the canned hams because of the cabover but that gives her extra sleeping room. Any experts out there want to offer up any advice or resources?
