Hi, we're Paul & Lynda from Seattle, Washington. Here is our new (to us) trailer. She is a '72 Starflyte that came with most of her original manuals. We had to tow her home 200 miles and she was a good little trooper. Too bad for us that we had to go over the pass in the snow when the state patrol was closing the highway! She is not the oldest trailer in the world, but is in vintage condition, with all original appliances. We joined once we finally had a trailer of our own!! We tried to take pictures of every aspect of the trailer in original condition so we could remember what she looked like when we bought her. We've already decided to pull the toilet. She's a real cute trailer, can't wait to use her!! We will need to do some resealing because after getting 4" of rain in 2 days, we did find some leaks. Right now we are just working on cleaning her up. Thinking about taking her to the rally next month at the XXX drive-in out in Issaquah, but not sure we want to put her next to the pretty pristine trailers that will be there.
Hey guys! Come out to the XXX. I'll be there with my '69 Starflyte and would love to see your trailer. BTW even if you come without the trailer to the show you could get a great idea what others have done to their trailers. It's nice to see the variety of things you could do, and everyone is really friendly. I've yet to meet someone who wouldn't let you look inside and ask questions.

We have only pulled out the toilet and are getting ready to replace it. I have been working on curtians and replacing contact paper on the shelves but other than that we have not done anything. Next is checking the bearings and getting new tires just to be safe. I also bought plastic containers for food items that I plan to keep in the trailer over the summer. It does have some skin issues that will need to be replaced but we are waiting for dryer weather. You can check the heading for West Coast Vintage Rallies and it has the XXX rally listed there May 4 & 5.
