1954 “Two-Story” Vintage Travel Trailer
I bought this house 5 months ago from a vintage trailer collector and restoration guy who had more trailers then he had available time to fully restore them all. I am Airstream nut myself that hadn’t seen one of these in just over 20 years. I purchased it with intentions of parking it on our walnut ranch.. building a deck around it, putting some personal touches on it and renting it. What a great idea … Right?
Well I still think so but the wife has made it very clear that she doesn’t want anybody else living on the property.. Just another lost battle of mine over the years!!!
So here it is.. I would bet that it’s the only one in existence.. maybe one more is out there but it’s certainly not for sale. It’s a 1954 Ventoura loft liner Land Yacht (two story), a very rare ultimate vintage tiny house survivor. This trailer was in a mobile home park on a lake for over 40 years and scarcely used as summer home most of its life. This trailer has three bedrooms.. a master back bedroom downstairs with a queen bed, two upstairs bedrooms with king beds, one upstairs bedroom has a closet and a privacy door, other upstairs bedroom has a large storage room. Upstairs there is a storage closet that has the a air unit that vents up through the old heater vent through the roof. New 50 amp service was installed and it has a 100 amp panel, new copper water lines, and a total of three new portable air condition units, 13000 btu in the living room, 7000 btu rear bedroom, 12000 btu upstairs. All new tires and rims. The tail lights and blinkers have new wire and work well, the exterior has a fresh coat of paint. It has an older fridge that works great. This is a portable little home, it has a title as a RV. This trailer is very rare and six months ago was towed 850 miles over the mountains and it towed well. This tiny house would make a great beach or lake lot home, it could sleep 8 with a front living room sofa bed.
It’s a 1954.. So it’s not brand new.. But it is functional and amazing condition for its age.
The trailer is 12 ft tall, 40ft long, 8ft wide. weighs approx. 11000lbs
Upstairs loft height: 6′
Rear bedroom height: 6’6”
Living room height: 7′
