New Trailer Modeled after 1947 Cabin Car

Having finished and have for sale the "Wallabago" http://s1101.photobucket.com/albums/g440/Seabee74

I'll be starting a new trailer fashioned after the 1947 Cabin car and will use a reclaimed and refinished frame from a Camper Deville pop-up. It'll have a cook stove, AC, 2 sinks, cooler, TV/DVD, queen bed & porta-potty. More pics will come as I progress

asking 8500 for it....American hauler cargo trailer 5x10 with a V nose. 1600 pounds as is. All aluminum exterior with an undercoated bottom and the frame has also been sprayed with a truck bed coating. All wiring is enclosed in plastic tubing. Galley has a 16 inch wide laminate covered counter with 12 volt lights, 12 volt outlets, and 110 ground fault outlets. There is a roll out cooler tray with storage behind, a 5 gallon water jug with storage behind, a 3 burner cook stove, a space for a second cooler, a fold down table on one side of the double rear doors, napkin holder, paper plate holder, plastic bag holder, antique can opener, & an antique bottle opener. There is a pass thru door to the interior dinette table which seats 4/5. The interior has that dinette table covered with the same laminate and also has 4 cup holders in the table top. The cushions for the benches are custom made and covered with a nice cloth to match the cedar covered walls and ceiling. The table legs comes out and the table drops down to become the base for the queen bed. The seat benches have lids that lift for more storage. There are 12 volt lights on the wall and ceiling. The front counter has the microwave for making the popcorn while you watch movies or tv on the flat screen mounted on the wall. The front upper cabinets have sliding doors for lots of storage. Under the counter is the portable AC unit which vents thru the floor. To the right is a cabinet for the marine battery and all the circuit breakers. The AC unit is portable so it can be removed for colder camping trips and more useable storage space. There is an additional heater which does a great job during colder temps. Not much heat is needed because it is well insulated. Trailer has an awning over the door which removes easily and stores inside while driving. There is a sliding window in the door as well as one on each side of the trailer. A large American flag decal is on the front of the trailer over the red , white and blue tongue box which allows for lots of extra storage space. The road side of the trailer has a very large Route 66 decal. The roof of the trailer has been coated with rubber (2 coats) for sound and insulation. Everything you need for a cozy camping trip...it is located in Dixon, Ill. I was in MCB 74 68-74

Hey Glenn, 

How much are you asking for the wallabago ? Can you give me the specs for it: length, height, weight and brand of cargo trailer. Oh, husband says hello from a fellow Seabee NMCB #5 from 1976 - 1981. :-)

it is already so low that I don't think that will be an issue and the galley has to be in back to avoid stepping over the tongue
