I put mine on a free photobucket account. Its very easy to do...

Once thats done, just click on the little landscape button on this site and paste the direct link from photobucket. When you put your cursor over the pic in photobucket, it pops up the links...

looks like the kind of thing some folks around here dream about...

Do you own it or are you considering buying it?

I *think* it is a '57 or earlier based on the number of panels on the end. I also would guess that it is an Overlander (26'.) Do you have better name badge pictures?

It's my friend's dads. He has a lot of stuff. Is there anyway we can put a new floor in it?

The short answer is: Yes. Yes, you can put a new floor in this trailer.
It's not a small task: the floor extends all the way under the upper shell. In order to replace the floor you will need to temporarily remove the shell (everything above the floor.) It's doable, though. We did it. Many others before us have done it.

If it's too big of a job then you might be surprised to know that you could probably find a buyer for this trailer without replacing the floor. The trailer's age makes it more desirable. Many people who buy a trailer this age would expect to have to replace the floor.

If you decide to tackle the floor then you can find lots of resources here on the forums. You should look for "shell off restoration" or "shell on restoration."

It's a pretty trailer!

Would Plywood under and over the rotted wood work? My friend asked.

If all you are doing is hanging out in it then some plywood on top should work for a while.

Its a cool trailer. Since its gutted, replacing the floor properly shouldn't be all that hard. Especially if you have a few guys working on it.

Its a cool trailer, any Idea what he'd sell it for?

I have a similar trailer also, a 1954 26'cruiser and it was not in much better shape. They are rare, so quite a few people looking for them. If you are not going to pull it down the road, a temporary floor over the top could be fine. The way the floor is now the trailer is not very stable for the road. Have fun with it!

How would you put plywood under the rotted wood?
By removing the belly pan (aluminum under the trailer)?
