American Pickers’ Mike Wolfe shows off sold ‘time capsule 1933’ camper from Nebraska museum in its original condition
MIKE Wolfe has sold a 1930s travel trailer that he acquired on his hit show American Pickers for $20,000 after the vehicle sat in a Nebraska museum’s archives for years.
Viewers are blasted with nostalgia when Wolfe moves past the entryway’s screened door and films the camper’s wooden walls that have hung copies of old road maps, which are purportedly souvenirs.
Other shots inside this vintage trailer reveal a dining table, one-tube radio, two burners, and a bed area.
The sales ad for this vintage travel trailer read: “Very rare and unusual 1930s 5th wheel looking travel trailer.
“Picked on an episode of American Pickers from a museum in Nebraska that had stored the trailer in their archives for many years, it’s a true time capsule.
“Maybe one of the first vagabond trailers believed to be from 1933. Skinned in what they called leatherette.
“100% all original inside and out and is untouched. Features a front kitchen with sink and a removable 2 burner camp stove and rear bedroom.
“New curtains, mattress pads, windows, and tires are recommended. Overall, will need a good cleaning and detailing but is being sold as is,” Tin Can Tourists reports.
Several viewers praised this classic set of wheels when Wolfe posted his tour of the trailer on Instagram.
One Instagram user wrote: “A time capsule. Love it!”
Another viewer commented: “That’s probably the only one of its kind left! Where did you find this in this condition? It’s awesome!”
The reality TV star picked up the trailer during episode 348 of American Pickers, titled Wolfes Go West.
