If you love vintage trailers, this find is for you! It’s a 1947 Great Western trailer.

It was made in California, and is so rare the owner has only been able to located three others around the US. The trailer is said to have been designed by Aeroflite designer, Frederick C Hoffman.

The Great Western has a one of a kind, space age style, window located in the back of the rig. While this trailer definitely needs a bit of renovation, it has strong bones and the full, original kitchen. One of the unique selling points for this unit was the platform on top of the roof, allowing two people to sleep up there under the stars.
