1960 Mobile Scout Has All Original Fixtures And Custom Painted Exterior

According to Tin Can Tourists, Mobile Scout was based in Arlington, Texas and built mostly 5th wheel trailers starting in 1955. I want to show you an early-model Mobile Scout camper that’s for sale in the Dallas, TX area.

This 1960 Mobile Scout is only 12′ long.

While you could take it on weekend trips, the previous owner used it as a backyard camper and pool house!
