Hi, We have been reading post on this forum for sometime and finally getting to joining in. We acquired a 1954 Aljoa Sportsman trailer a little over a year ago. After several camping trips it was decided to repaint and make some repairs to the interior. The bedroom was reconfigured and a bathroom added (not functioning now) in probably the 60's or 70's, the intent is to bring it back to how it was originally. So the bathroom has been removed along with two layers of flooring exposing the original floor that matches the existing floor. The trailer had been repainted at some point, not a very good job at that, the black trim was 2" black tape, since then we have been stripping the paint, almost done with that. It was actually really cool, in the process of removing the paint the original paint and logo were exposed, the plan is to replicate the original paint scheme but a little different colors. The down side is we have discovered significant dry rot in the front of the trailer, when we think about it, it is amazing the trailer stayed intact while being towed. The whole front wood will need to be replaced:( We are new to all of this so will be looking for input and advice from those that have already been where we're headed. Mike & Kim Wilton, CA.
