Help Me ID

I'm taking a wild guess this is not an airstream, but it certainly looks like a prehistoric cousin. Do you guys know what this is? It was in a field not too far from an area I passed. The owner just wants gone, if I had some land in bc, I would be tempted to make it into a vacation home. It's HUGE on the inside.

That is a Spartian. Interesting trailer. The birch interiors were beautiful. Not many parts around anymore to restore them. It would be a labor of love.

Hmmm... Is it bright colors on the inside? There was a thread recently about a trailer that looked the same as this one and it was for sale in your area. The ad was very "entertaining" in it's description. I went back to check it out, but when I go to the Kijiji ad, it says the ad is no longer available.

Those are beauties when refinished.

I stand corrected Here is the link to the Vagabond picture site.
1953 Vagabond 35

Pretty rare trailer. To me, it still looks pretty close to a Spartian.

It's actually the very same, the owner has been trying to get it off his property for a good while. They were asking 900, but I think at this point, he just wants it gone. I would hate to see it go to scrap.

I'm not sure I would want it restored, I would rather make it modern, perhaps even a stand still vacation home; an homage to 60s futurist architecture.

T.B.

If you do decide to rescue it, keep us informed and post photos... Anything you do will be great rather than the continued decline she's in now.

Good luck in your decision!!!
