1952 Silver Streak Clipper # 72335 https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=242 Sun, 23 Apr 2017 13:36:55 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=242 Bought this trailer in Santa Cruz, CA. It had some modifications made that needed to be corrected. Brought it Los Angeles where I had all windows replaced with original 1952's, belly repaired and replaced where needed, subfloor replaced with marine grade at both ends, interior double coated with white zolatone, and dark hard wood floors installed. It comes with original metal cabinets (also recoated with white zolatone),original and new wood cabinet covers ready to install --the originals had been cut out to fit speakers), new period door handle and lock, and it has recently been polished. Our intention for the trailer has been to turn it into a modern guest house but found out zoning won't allow us to install it in our backyard. The trailer is ready to become anything you can imagine, a modern guest house, creative office, or a slick fully renovated trailer. It truly is an amazing white canvas which I truly hate to let go of. I hope i goes to the right person or family that will realize its potential with respect to its heritage.

1932 Palace Palatial Manor 24' ALL ORIGINAL Barn Find https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=221 Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:16:04 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=221 Themed as: “Live Forever Again” Okay, so the 120 year old barn was destined to be destroyed and rebuilt. And it was huge….over 100’ deep and 40’ wide. What could be in there? Vintage cars…maybe a priceless Packard…maybe a Pierce Arrow…maybe an Edison car. Let your imagination run wild. The barn was packed with STUFF!!! So, all you pickers out there, rejoice, let the pickin’ begin!!! Oh, what’s this? Out comes a 1956 Ford Thunderbird (original and untouched), a few 1960’s and 1970’s daily drivers in REALLY good condition, a LOT of farm implements and then it revealed itself. All the way in the back, probably for at least 70 years…”who’s going to remove everything in front to get at it?”… was a VERY cool vintage trailer with 2 entry doors, wheel skirts and EVERYTHING intact and there!! When we pulled it out we discovered that it hadn’t even been walked in for at least 50 years because we left foot prints in the dust on the floor. Now THIS was a time capsule. Somebody left all their stuff in here for the next camping trip that was never to be, closed the door and over the years started piling cars, tractors and 80 years of farm life stuff in front of it forever blocking it in. The reason I’ve never heard of a Palace Palatial Manor or seen one is that this is probably the LAST survivor. Specs and 100 pics at https://1932palacepalatialmanor24.shutterfly.com/pictures

1950 Spartan Spartanette 28' Original MINT condition WITH full bathroom and original appliances https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=219 Mon, 17 Apr 2017 19:49:13 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=219 Themed as: “Wine … How Classy People Get Wasted!!” This is another “barn find” where it lived inside for most of its life in Kansas. Then we took it to the next level…or maybe a dozen levels. Spartans were definitely one of the top trailers AND airplanes ever built. They competed with the Westcrafts and Vagabonds in sophistication and design. They were marketed to the very discriminating buyer with lots of dollars to spend and didn’t care what it cost. And they never skimped on quality. Everything was first rate and done the right way. This MINT condition Spartanette with NO rain leaks or bad wood has been upgraded with new plumbing / heat. The original fridge gets ice cold in 10 minutes and the original stove / oven works perfectly. Even the original mattress has no wear, no smells and absolutely NO marks. With the rear queen bed and the ladies "makeup" vanity, full bathroom and LOTS of storage it is a woman's dream Having front and rear entry doors makes for an easily accessible trailer from either side. The original cabinetry and floor is designed like it was built in 1950. Has appeared at numerous vintage trailer rallies.. Truly a time capsule. Titled in Calif. as a 1950 Spartan and NOT as "special construction" vehicle. Title in hand. Restoration, specs and 50 pictures at https://1950spartanette28restored.shutterfly.com/pictures

The 1929 Depression and Wall Street crash just ended. The country is trying its best to recover from the worst financial crisis in the history of the United States. A big percentage of the country is out of work. There are homeless people everywhere. There are bread lines in some places for the fortunate few who are able to find them. Most of the country does not own a car…let alone a vacation trailer. Pension plans, paid retirement, paid holidays, Social Security, vacation days…NONE of this has been invented yet. People did not trust the banks or any financial institution because of the market crash. This was not a great time to be living. But your name is famous! You are famous AND rich! You CAN afford a car! You CAN afford a new Packard, a new Cadillac, a new Pierce Arrow AND you can afford a vacation travel trailer!! You have your own driver / butler / cook hook up your new 1934 Silverdome to your new 1934 Packard, pack up your camping gear and drive you to your yet undiscovered “river of solitude” away from all the crowds and your admiring fans. Because laws haven’t been passed yet about riding in the back of trailers while being towed you are being gently jostled in back sipping your favorite martini. Ahhhhh… the Good Life!! Please see total restoration, specs and 74 pictures at https://1934silverdomerestored.shutterfly.com/
