In November of 2012 my Son called me about the purchase of a 1961 Mobile Scout travel trailer. I had no Idea what one was. He said something about a “Canned Ham” I thought it was something we could EAT!!! Boy was I wrong. Any way he said they could be worth quite a bit of money once they were restored and fixed up. I told him I’d think about it. I began to “Google” the subject and found that the Mobile Scout trailers were not all that common but were fairly unique with their Triangular windows in the door etc.. I told him that it appeared it would be an interesting woodworking challenge and that I would spring for the $400 dollar purchase price for the trailer. He delivered this to my house on November 25th of last
She was in a SAD state of repair. LOTS of Leaks and rot. Gunna need a lot of wood work. Probably not gunna do a Pure Original restoration on the interior but we will make her solid and sound and give her a paint job so the family can get a few more years of use out of her. I plan on posting pics and update here on the blog so you all can follow along with the progress. Hope you’ll post your comments and enjoy the ride.
It should be fun.
