Get A Look At This Beautifully Restored 1947 Westwood Coronado

A small business based out of Bend, Oregon is doing big things for vintage travel trailers. Flyte Camp restores and renovates old campers that date back as early as the 1930s; they also sell vintage travel trailers that are ready to be renovated for DIYers who want to customize their own build. In fact, we have shared one of their restorations before—the rare 1961 Holiday House Geographic Trailer Model X.

The impressive portfolio on their website showcases all of the restoration and renovation projects they’ve previously done, including a 1928 Ford House Car and a 1936 Masterbilt now equipped with modern amenities.

The 1947 Westwood Coronado

The dilapidated 73-year-old trailer was beautifully restored to look just like it did when it rolled off the dealer’s lot.

The exterior was painted a glossy cherry red to match the client’s tow vehicle. The original doors and windows were restored, rather than just replaced, to look like new again.

The interior

The interior of the trailer was also fully gutted and renovated to its former glory. The original ceiling had suffered from years of extensive water damage. New insulation, wooden wall panels, ceiling panels, and Marmoleum flooring were installed.

The kitchen

The kitchen got a sleek new stainless steel countertop, as well as a new vintage-style stove. The dividing wall between the stove and the entry counter (pictured below) was removed to open up the space.

They refinished the walls, shelves, and fold-down table in the dinette area with a glossy new shine. The vintage Click Clack sofa bed was also reupholstered.

The bedroom

The trailer’s bedroom was updated with a small TV and refurbished storage cabinets. A larger bathroom closet was also built in just steps away from the bed.

This 1947 Westwood Coronado is one of the many restorations that shows Flyte Camp’s fine craftsmanship and attention to detail. They’ve also completed a custom restoration of a 1950 Westcraft Coronado and another 1950 Westcraft Coronado that was built specifically for the 2017 SEMA Show.
