Looky what I finally got.

Postby mandy » Wed Oct 09, 2013 11:42 pm

I haven't been here in a while but its still makes me giggle that the peeing in the woods thread is still going strong :o :lol:
This weekend I finally found the trailer of my dreams. :)
I still don't know what it is yet but here it is in all its glory. :roll: :lol:

What do you girls think of it? It needs work but hopefully we (my sisters boyfriend and I) hope to get it done by next camping season. :worship: ( but we all know they are never really done) ;) :lol:

Spend a little money and a little work in trade for a lot of road trips and fun!
Congratulations on your new tin baby, Mandy!

Love your trailer----can't wait to see when you get it all fixed up. Would love to see "in progress" photos.

I was looking through my list of "Pinterest" sites and came across what looks like a redone version of your nifty trailer. Wasn't sure if I could "swipe and post" the photo here, so here's the link:

Looks like a bed at one end and a dinette at the other. Not having to build a bed every night is a big plus in my book. Good luck with the redo.

Went looking some more and your trailer looks like a 1955 or so Aljoa (check out the red one, middle of page):

The photo from my first post and on another website describes it as a 1956 Rainbow.

Here's a 1955 Rainbow:

I just love these canned hams. We see a few around central Wisconsin, during our travels, but they're usually in dire shape due to the weather.

It's close but mine dosen't have that little divet in the front. I think it's called a Fleetwing. The Title says 1951 Flee. I think it's a transition between a Fleetwing and a Fleetwood. Because it isn't exactally a Fleewood or a Fleetwing its a little of both. :thinking:

I think the bed was a jimmy rig kind of thing. I might just keep the idea but rebuild it the right way. :thumbsup:

I thought mine was a Rainbow but the front dose not match up with mine.

I also thought it was an Aljoa / Aljo but the doors are diffrent.

Hello Mary Nice to meet you too. :shake hands: I think I will have a build journal if and when I get started. So far I'm just on the research phase and trying to find all the stuff I need to fix my new baby. I hope I have it done by next summer :worship: but who knows what needs to be done before then. :thinking:
