Overview Interior cabinets and appliances all original. Stove and oven work beautiful and refrigerator needs to be checked out. All original interior lighting is there and working. We purchased in April of 2013.

I think two windows have been replaced but all others are original and work great. Just replaced all the rubber seals. No significant dents and was probably polished about 10 years ago then stored indoors. Will polish again this summer. New propane tanks. Undercarriage patched professionally in one spot. New tires and hubcaps.

Interior

Half of the floor replaced and re-riveted to frame. New Marmoleum flooring installed and new upholstered cushions made. All interior given fresh coat of paint and all wood cabinets have been taken off and refinished and all original hardware removed, cleaned by hand and replaced.

Customization
I don't think anything yet. Removed a formica shelf in front. Did not build-in benches and table as I believe the original was purchased without. Have a period table and chairs freestanding.

Other Information
As I have not found another like, I am guessing it was made in California the end of '53 and looks very much like the Globetrotter except 1' shorter and no bathroom.
