I am trying to make some progress in restoring my 1951 SS Clipper. While the weather is to cold to pull it out of storage. So I started some cabinet work. Mine has rear twin beds. The cabinet in the rear of the trailer had been removed and replaced with a cedar table many years ago.
The original beds looked like this. Zigzag deck with inner springs covered with musty cotton.
I saved the framework and removed the zigzags and covered the frames with 1/2" plywood. I found a mattress company that will build me new inner spring mattresses that will work just like the original. But they will be comfortable and smell new!
I wanted a TV in the trailer but did not want it out in the open. So I built this cabinet with a vertical drawer to hold a 19" TV/DVD. When I want to watch, I just pull it up and lock it open. I stole the magazine rack design from an old Shasta.
