I found out what I have by 3 hours of searching. I'm going to try to post some pictures. Its a 1953 Rooadmaster Custom 35 i guess the wood inside is birch wood. It needs new linoleum. or whatever and a few other things.

WOW! That's B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!

You can use many of the posts on the forums to figure out how to do a restoration - I'm sure many of the components are the same or similar to 50's Airstreams. As far as costs...the linked below website has a lot of good info & resources.

Restoration Resources

The thing is - these restorations always cost more than you think they will, it's like peeling an onion...the more you peel, the juicier it gets. It would depend alot on how structurally sound the floor & frame are. If in good shape, you can just focus on aesthetics - if bad, you may have to take it down to the frame like we did (and many others on this forum) on our '56 Safari. That can cost upwards of $20K.

It'll be a total GEM when you are done...

Great Trailer! Love the two doors, picture windows and wood interior. It looks like you also have a great fridge from the one photo too.

It will be a labor of love. Lots of info to be had around here with lots of helpful folks.

Welcome!!
