-Images and details from Ventana vintage trailer: 
-Go camping in DeCamp trailer. ​ This compact little 12 footer includes a modern zip awning and could be ready for camping with only a weekend worth of work.  The DeCamp is a great little breadbox style trailer from the mid-60s. ​ Funky exterior styling that you either love or....you think it looks like a breadbox and you really would liked canned ham.  Beautiful, original turquoise sink, stove, exhaust hood and icebox. ​ Original gold fleck laminate, tile floor and cool white and gold light fixtures. ​ Newer sarape look cushion coverings with dark green velour bolsters on the back bed.  A  mix of turquoise and sarape curtains. ​ Jalousie windows all around. ​ Standard dinette/bed up front with a great gaucho couch/bed in the back and another sliding bed up above the gaucho. Ventana claimed this to be a 1967.
