Curtis Wright Model 5 help!

We purchased this Curtis Wright not really knowing what it was but thought it was really cool looking. Now we have no idea what to do with it or where to start. Says its a Model 5 serial # 8177. Anyone know what year it may be? 1947? inside has kitchen (super dirty but there) and 2 wardrobe closets and that's it, rest is pretty rough....any insight or others with Curtis Wrights would be greatly appreciated

That is a neat old trailer. Are you going to do a complete restoration?

We would love to see it restored but fear it is way too big of a project for us. Might be looking for someone to sell to who will have the time and know how to do it

I might be crazy, since I kind of know the work that will be involved, but send me a message of how much you need for her? Is she towable?

I'm about ready to retire and this would make a good long term rebuild.

Lumatic, you're not any more crazy than the rest of us, and I know you'd do an amazing job! Go for it, but you better post pictures
