This trailer has a wonderful and unique history. The story began in 1969 purchased by the then International Treasurer of the WBCCI (member #295). It was passed down through the family and eventually sold to an individual with a plan to make a mobile restaurant. Those plans never came to be and the trailer sat in storage in Northwest Oregon. In November of 07 a devastating storm struck the small town of Vernonia. The Nehalem River crested its banks and water flooded the town. The floodwaters picked up and carried the trailer several hundred yards before leaving her straddling a road down stream. The trailer was rescued by Mona Heath of Hillsboro Oregon. Mona had a vision, with the help of northwest artisans nearly three years later “Kalakala” as she was dubbed made her debut in Southern Oregon at a Wally Byam Caravan Club rally. She has proudly been displayed at a number of rallies and events on the west coast.
The entire trailer was gutted and all vestiges of the flood were removed. A complete ground up renovation of this trailer was performed. Designer Greg Simons of Portland was called upon to develop the interior to meet Mona’s vision. Using CAD design software every facet of the project was carefully prepared before actual construction was done. The result is a Mid Century Modern lounge on wheels. The forward kidney shaped couch and matching ottoman along with the Eames Styled Fiberglas chair provide a great area for entertaining or relaxing with a good book. Mid ship is equipped with a nice galley and breakfast bar with adjustable hydraulic bar stools and custom Avonite green Cat's Eye counter tops. The rear of the trailer houses the sleeping pod with queen size mattress and ample overhead storage. The exterior of the trailer is polished to a near mirror.
