We saw this trailer just as we got on Texas 130 to avoid the morass of Austin traffic. Southbound at about 2:30 pm on the 8th. We were streamless at the time, this is a car+hotel trip.

Must have been one heck of an AC to cool that baby down.

Thanks for the pix.

Spartan for sure

That unit is a 1956 as the window in the front tells the story. My parents divorced when I was 15 and when I was 16 my mother bought a 1956..."Mansion" in Roswell, NM. Note the small window under the large window...tells the tail.

The windows tell me that there was a front bedroom, then the large window next is the living room and then the kitchen (stove vent), then bath and bedroom.
