Vintage Winnebago 1967 F19 RV Motorhome for sale - Project - Must Sell https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/713/vintage-winnebago-1967-f19-rv-motorhome-for-sale-project-must-sell/motorhomes-for-sale/ Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:56:38 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Motorhomes for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/713/vintage-winnebago-1967-f19-rv-motorhome-for-sale-project-must-sell/motorhomes-for-sale/ This vintage model Winnebago would make a great project for someone to restore, or use as a chassis for a tiny home. Please don't make me scrap this piece of history. The vehicle does start and run, but it is not road worthy. It will need some TLC to get it useable again. The interior is fairly complete, but is old, stinky and will need some elbow grease. The Winnebago is currently parked on my property but I have to get it moved asap. It will drive (barely) but I would recommend getting it towed or put on a trailer to haul away.

We named her after the lady we bought her from because she was genuinely nice and caring. She is such a cute little trailer and you will have many who will admire her as you drive down the road. The Compact is the smallest trailer in the Shasta line. This trailer is 13 feet long, 6’6” wide and 7’7” tall. It weighs 1100lbs and has a hitch weight of about 130lbs, she is incredibly light and can be pulled by smaller vehicles. The seating area converts to a nice size bed for two adults and above the seating area is a bunk for two small children. We recently put in new hardwood flooring and shiplap on the walls as well as adding lots of beautiful touches throughout the trailer. Other upgrades include custom made cushions, we painted the oven pink and made new curtains. She does not have a bathroom, but has room for a port-a-potty in the closet. She is ready to tow with great tires. We also had the axle serviced and the bearings packed. “Sweetest Edna” is ready for you to start making memories in! Please call, text or email if you are interested, want more information, more pics or have questions. Asking $7400.00 OBO Located in Wellsville, Utah Kim Howard (435) 754-5386 Khoward356@gmail.com

1964 Silver Streak Sabre 17' https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/706/1964-silver-streak-sabre-17/trailers-for-sale/ Mon, 13 Nov 2017 09:47:34 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/706/1964-silver-streak-sabre-17/trailers-for-sale/ You won't see many Silver Streak trailers of this year model that are polished, as they were originally anodized aluminum with a dull but durable finish. Lots of sweaty hours were put in to remove the anodization, and the polish job is about 90% complete. Copper accents have been added to dress it up a bit, and there are no major dents (unfortunately the sun in the photos is causing the shadows to look like dents!), although there are a few pings and bumps as you would expect from a trailer this age. The trailer has retained its original turquoise countertops and range, however the cabinets have been painted and the interior customized. The floor is solid and covered with wood laminate, and there are no leaks. The bathroom was removed in favor of more storage space (most campsites have bath houses anyway) but there is a brand new-never used chemical portable toilet that is included for emergencies. The sink works when connected to an exterior water source, as there is no freshwater holding tank; however, it does have a small interior greywater tank. Other specs: -new tires on tandem axles; uses a 2" ball hitch and is wired for towing -all interior/exterior lights work from 110V/12V inverter -two 30lb propane tanks -stove burners work, however oven does not -refrigerator and microwave included -A/C and propane heater work great -good spare tire -door unclips and separates to utilize screen door -couch pulls out and table folds down to sleep 4 -from a nonsmoking home

1979 Prowler Original with custom Cedar paneling ceiling. Ready to camp! https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/703/1979-prowler-original-with-custom-cedar-paneling-ceiling-ready-to-camp/trailers-for-sale/ Sun, 12 Nov 2017 10:45:27 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/703/1979-prowler-original-with-custom-cedar-paneling-ceiling-ready-to-camp/trailers-for-sale/ For sale is my 1979 Prowler model 19E. This trailer will make a great starter camper, cozy man cave, very comfy doghouse when the wife or husband is mad or a great vehicle to tow behind your vintage vehicle. This trailer comes with all the original paperwork from the day it left the dealer, and the weight distributing hitch. It is in good to excellent original condition with there only being a few minor things to fix. The good: -Custom T&G (tongue and groove) Cedar paneled ceiling milled from our own trees in northern Michigan. -Tires and bearings have about less than 6,000 miles on them since we bought this 20 years ago. -Roof is sealed as of spring -water system works -Original pwr inverter has been rebuilt. -All lights work -New "Fantastic vent fan" installed W/Remote control. The bad- The water heater needs service. I could never get the pilot light to light. the awning end caps need to be replaced, the plastic is broken from age The sink in the bathroom needs a new pipe to be functional. Otherwise, I always used the kitchen sink. -I accidentally dented the hubcaps as I pulled the trailer out. They can be fixed. This trailer is in overall great condition and is ready for restoration, or to use and enjoy as is. It tows like a dream! I towed it across the Mackinac bridge with sustained winds of 60 with no sway or issues. Price is OBO. Title in hand! Everything is included but iPad and Heineken mug. I can deliver, but it will be .50 cents per mile.

One of a Kind Covered Wagon https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/702/one-of-a-kind-covered-wagon/trailers-for-sale/ Fri, 10 Nov 2017 22:59:34 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/702/one-of-a-kind-covered-wagon/trailers-for-sale/ This unique trailer was protected in a barn for years. It is the only one of its kind around anymore. I believe it was built in the 1940's. It is a sturdy chuck wagon or Vardo style trailer to carry all you camp gear and provide a place to sleep at night. The top is duck canvas. the box is solid wood. The wooden slats that support the canvas are very attractive. It would be perfectly suited for a slide out style chuck-box kitchen. Add some period amenities and you will be the talk of the campground. The canvas extends out on the front and the back to create more shade and make a bigger living space. It has a tufted mattress that fits the box. There are leather thongs hanging inside that were designed to suspend a loft bed. The black and white photo shows a similar trailer being used that way back in the 1950's. I bought this one from a yard/estate sale when someone else was talking about buying it and tearing off the top to use it as a trash hauler. I couldn't let that happen. Now I need to find a good home for it. Are you interested?

At the time I thought it would be a good project for me, but as I cleaned her up I started finding more issues than I could really deal with with my small (virtually non-existent) budget. I am hoping that someone on here will see what I saw in this beautiful piece of history and restore her correctly. I’m asking $1,200 so I can break even on this, but I am open to reasonable offers as well. I know she’s really really rough, but with $3,000 of work put in you could easily make $7-9,000 off of her, based on the research I’ve been doing...I just don’t have that much to invest. With the right owner this trailer can be so stunning!

Own a piece of history This camper was stored in a barn for the last 21 years. The outside of the trailer is EXCEPTIONAL!! It has never been painted and the outside is all original. No dents or dings. The rear stop, turn and tail lights were tested and work. Someone removed the step (we have it) at sometime and there is a missing tail light lens. Amazing condition for its age.... The inside of the trailer is in great shape as well! Sink, stove top, refrigerator, in-wall heater. It has a small 5 gallon fresh water tank that is original, we have not tested it. There is a dinette that folds into a bed in the front of the trailer, a large closet across from the sink, a full/queen sized bed in the back with an overhead bunk. The flooring is original and is in great shape for its age. The front of the trailer looks like it leaked under the front window at one time, it is only cosmetic as you can see in the pictures. We have had the trailer outside the last couple weeks and it has not leaked at all. There is one small spot near the edge of the ceiling that had a tiny leak at one time as well. No current leaks. The trailer will come with a NYS transferable registration. The registration is listed at "Home made" due to the original being lost over the years. $3000 - sold as is.

The trailer is 22 feet long which includes the length of the hitch. It has one axle. Extensive renovation has been done since 1992, when I bought it. Some of the woodwork is original and the rest has been custom-made. All wooden surfaces have been re-finished with water-resistant oil. The new kitchen counter-top is covered with formica. Approximately $6,000 has been spent reconditioning the woodwork alone. The custom-made cushions have removable slip-covers. All three couches open into beds. One is 3/4 size (i.e. bigger than a twin but smaller than a double). Two other couches are opposite each other. In-between is a table that can seat six people. When the table is folded up against the wall, the couches can pull out into beds with two possible configurations: 1) Two separate beds, one big enough for a woman, the other child-sized. -OR- 2) One queen-sized bed if the two couches are joined by an extension in the middle. The copper propane lines, plastic water pipes, water heater, water pump, two faucets and shower-head have been replaced. The cold water tank is original. The bathroom has a small tub with a shower. A new shower wall was custom-made with formica over plywood. The stove and refrigerator are original. The hood over the cook stove has an exhaust fan. One of the ceiling vents, situated a couple feet from the stove, has a fan that could serve as a second exhaust while cooking. A furnace is
