They don’t make travel trailers like how they used to, so we love seeing classic campers like this 1959 Oasis restored with old-school style.
The trailer is a 1959 Oasis “Seventeen Six” model and weighs about 2,900 lbs.
According to the original listing, the vintage trailer was structurally sound and ready for camping. The owner posted:
“Of the dozen or so trailers my wife and I have done over the past 10 years or more, this was by far the most extensive and time-consuming. If I can’t refinish, restore or rebuild the original, we search for and try to find the best period correct replacement pieces and hardware.”
The almost 60-year-old travel trailer was lovingly refurbished inside and out. The aluminum was cleaned and polished and the exterior got some fresh new paint and a clear coat.
They installed gorgeous wood laminate flooring and refinished & rebuilt the cabinets. The kitchen still has its original and fully functional refrigerator, as well as a stove and a sink.
The dining area is just as comfortable as it was back in ’59. The dinette seats and table are all still original.
The windows were furnished with new handmade privacy curtains. They give the interior space a nice homey touch!
The old dull ceiling also got a fresh new makeover. Several portions were repaneled and brightened up with new white paint.
The propane wall heater was rebuilt and updated as well. This will be much needed for the cold months ahead!
The new custom fit mattress measures about 44″ x 75″. It sits beside a small nightstand and only steps from the renovated bathroom.
They refinished the bathroom walls and rebuilt the wooden doors. It was also updated with a new modern RV toilet.
The all-aluminum shower is still completely original. The trailer was upgraded with a 110-volt electric hot water tank as well as a new 12-volt water pump.
The exterior also got some new seam sealant, window butyl, caulking, and an undercoat.
They added new tires, new wheel trim, and hubcaps, as well as electric brakes.
The refurbished trailer was up for sale on Craigslist in Bellingham, Washington. It has since been sold for about $15,000.
