It looks to be a 50's 21 foot flying cloud with the window placement. A steal at $1,000 even if it needs everything.

If the shop was already built out on the land we bought.....

Even if it cost me two weeks of PO'd better half it would be worth it....

I just want to see the inside if it trully has been closed up for "decades" who knows what it might look like.



(part needed - one original hub cap with the + pattern in the center)

Who cares what the inside looks like at that price. Your wife will understand.

I'd say it's a '47 to 49 22' Liner. It has both ends rounded. Beyond that I don't know them well enough to identify it more closely from the window arrangement. That means it would be a pipe frame model.

I will say that it appears to have no tongue, since we are looking at the door side (curb side), so the tongue would sticking out to the right, but there is a white wall where it should be. I hope I am wrong on that note.

In any case $1500 seems to be a good price no matter the condition, at least since what we can see of the shell looks pretty good. Chances are any un-restored trailer of this age will need frame work, especially a pipe frame model, so the tongue issue should not be a deal breaker. Having any of the original interior would be a nice bonus.

I thought so too, but I did wonder what "some of the wood panels are peeling" meant...

Ah, well that can be fixed (re-glued), right? But to me it looks like the veneer in the trailer for sale has ALREADY been re-done. I mean, it's so pale, when "dark" was the style back then, right?

Soooo... IF it had already been redone, WHY is it already peeling??

I think you are looking at the pic of the 67 TW but reading the ad for the 64 TW...maybe?
