New to the board... questions on Craigs List find

I reciently got a free trailer on CL. Score for me!!

I cant seem to find much about it. It was painted puke brown but it looks like this. It was used as an office...for a writer.
It hasnt been registered for decades.

The door opens the opposite way and my trailer isn't ribbed but the windows are the same although a few of mine have some damage.

It has a plaque by the door that was painted over I believe it says Oasis travel trailer. There was the original Licence plate a Black and Gold CA plate it 2 letters and 3 numbers. So it has to be old.

The trailer needs a lot of work but it has a lot of potential.

Cute. You may want to visit the Tin Can Tourists website. Their club is a mix of trailer brands, all vintage. Many have "canned ham" trailers. The site has a lot of info if you spend some time looking.

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)

You might also check out the Vintage vacations antique travel trailer talk site. I learned a lot about my two late 40's Boles Aero "canned hams" there.

It's a 50's Aljo (the winged logo on the side is a give away). I'm guessing 1958 or 59.
