1961 Land Yacht - what model?

Hi! I'm new here and found this forum while trying to decide what it is we are looking at regarding a trailer we found for sale on-line. The owner can't answer our questions. He says it is a 1961 Land Yacht and measured 25 feet from the front to bumper. He sent a photo of the model plate and it is hard to read, but might be:
D6DSS0544 and below that it reads 661
I think I've attached the photo.

Can anyone help me determine what we have here? I've also attached a photo of the trailer itself that he sent. Thanks!

I think I saw that on eBay , looks pretty rough! Is that a swamp cooler on the roof? I'm pretty sure it's an overlander... Good luck!

Thank you! I was guessing Overlander, but I appreciate the confirmation.

Yes, that is a swamp cooler on the roof. That along with a gouge under the window has us hesitant to drive the ~1.5 hours each way to go see it in person. I don't know if it is on ebay. We found it locally on Craig's list.

I'll give it to the owner, he has been very upfront about the condition of the trailer. We just aren't sure how much it will mean for that repair. We hope to do most of it ourselves to keep the cost down. This will be our first trailer refurb, but we are hoping our experience with car and house refurbs will work well on a trailer.
