I found a 1959
Caravanner today, in mostly original, extremely good condition. It seems to even have the original curtains (or very, very old replacements), the original pole-type awning, and original appliances, all in very good to excellent shape. All the windows are there, and there is no appreciable damage to the outer skin.
It does, however, have a brand-new rooftop air conditioner, and the person that did the install had to remove the rear light assembly from the ceiling, and it is dangling. Assuming I can figure out a way to patch the hole in the ceiling (this IS Florida) and either relocate or completely remove the light fixture, will the A/C unit detract significantly from the value of this trailer? The installation seems well done, with the exception of the aforementioned light fixture.
The rest of the trailer seems to be "just a polish away" from being in great shape.
