Saw this neat vintage Model T based travel trailer on eBay yesterday:http://www.ebay.com/itm/1912-Ford-Other/222625269864?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3A IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

I hope someone can preserve or restore it and put it back in use with period rig to pull it.

Chris, you're right, that thing could be awesome!

It's absolutely fabulous. Would make a perfect traveling darkroom. Even the color is correct for that purpose. Yes, if only I had the room.

I would like to see a master carpenter purchase this to both preserve it and to reproduce copies of it, the market may be small, but I'm sure many of us would find the $$$$ somewhere to own one of our very own ! Imagine the looks towing this down road ! Heck I might even sell my modern for a copy of that little darlin' !! How about you ?

That thing was for sale at the Long Beach Meet a couple of years ago, It was from the estate of Bill Trepanier(sp) of Bill's Radiator. The asking price was a bit high, and I don't think it sold there.

I looked at it and I have to say that, in my opinion, it is pretty rough.

It does look rough indeed, you'd have to take it to the chassis (because there is a Model T chassis under it, you can see the cross member in the front) and rebuild from there...and from I see in the pictures, its got a lot of wasted space too, and once the table/bed is up, there's no passage room around it.

A far better design and better thought out camper is the Lamb-Steed Kamp-Kar, carried 100 gallons of water and 14 gallons of gas, has stowage and cubby's in and around the outside skirts and a fair sized closet/wardrobe near the rear door (on both sides). The sides fold down and the seat cushions make mattresses for the beds (one on either side, plus the front seat), making for better pass through and fold up for travel and it sleeps 6...if I had an extra chassis, that's what I'd build, not waste time on this thing.

Thanks Mike S, I knew I'd seen it somewhere before. It was in a photo post here from an earlier Long Beach Swap meet. With the level of reconstruction needed, I think the interior could be better laid out.
