“This is an original U.S. Army WW2 Ben Hur trailer that I purchased from a farmer in Waterville 20 years ago. It’s all original except for whomever painted it orange decades ago. Anyway, it’s all in working condition and has served me faithfully all this time with never a problem. Two Novembers ago I had to come up with a very affordable place to sleep for a few months and building this little cabin into the trailer was my solution. I designed and built it myself and it is solid, insulated and very cozy. Great ventilation thanks to dual roof vents and the opening windows, which are vintage. The interior is all tongue and groove pine. Exterior is all cedar and clear polyurethane coated. The bed deck is Queen mattress size, (mattress in photo not included). It’s basically a super comfortable sleeping space with lots of storage. The trailer bed is 4×8′ and the camper dimensions above the trailer bed side level is 62″x9′. I am 6’1″ and I can stand in the middle at the foot of the bed. It served me very well and has been a great impromptu guest bedroom where I live now. But, I really don’t need it anymore and am lightening my material load in life.” (source: http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/rvs/4928871470.html)

Asking price is $2k. I think it’s a great deal if you’re in the market for something like this, you have the money and are in or near the area. It’s listed on Craigslist here in the Seattle area: http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/rvs/4928871470.html.
