What's this

it is a pleasurecraft form the 50's. I saw one of these in Carolina Beach, North Carolina last October for sale. A very nice and rare trailer. I don't know what the camper went for but the asking price was $16,500 there had been a total restoration of this trailer inside and out. looked showroom new. I was told by the boss (don't even think about it) but it was nice to see it. have a good day.

We've actually talked about the Pleasurecraft a couple of times. Dave Secrist joined us last summer: Pleasure Craft Finned Trailer, unfortunately we haven't seen Dave for a while (Last Activity: 07-05-2010 08:58 PM).

Camilla posted an image of the Pleasurecraft brochure in this thread: Old, old egg 1957

i saw a fiberglass boat about 3 months back in a autowrecking yard and just stood in awe. the unit was already sold. this unit brings the same glare to my eyes.

Luke, these are some great old photos. Do you have a
PleasureCraft? I have a 1957 model. My research shows the manufacturer, Ontario Trailer Works, built conventional trailers in lengths up to 45'. Around September 1957 they introduced the fiberglass trailer. They went out of business some time in 1958. I have seen modern photos of two other PleasureCraft fiberglass trailers; I can't imagine they built more than a handful of these trailers.

Wow, that is one cool trailer! Like Donna, I'm wondering where Peter got the pictures. Peter, is it yours? Did you take the pics? Is it for sale?

Assuming this works, attached are several photos of the 1957 PleasureCraft. The trailer was restored to original specs, except for a color change and a few safety and convenience modifications, with all work done by Kevin Reabe and Marcia Reabe. The trailer had been painted several times inside and out, which necessitated stripping to bare fiberglass. The interior was then done in epoxy boat paint, the exterior was done in PPG base coat clear coat. The floor and floor joists were rotted and required replacement. The steel frame was cracked in two places and was missing a crossmember. In one of the photos, the trailer body is shown hanging from a temporary structure that was built to allow the body to hang while the floor, joists, and frame were out of it.

The State of Illinois honored my request for a personalized plate for the trailer.

I wanted to point out that the table and countertop, both of which are molded, were originally done with glass glitter embedded in clear gelcoat, which we reproduced in our restoration of the trailer.

I am not normally one to go for big flowers and bright colors, and most of my restorations are more subdued,but I did this trailer to suit the tastes of my 25 year old daughter..and she loves it.
The flooring tile is new old stock Goodyear vinyl flooring from 1963.

I knew that some day Kevin would be working on a fiberglass trailer. Really neat pictures, boss.
