It's funny… I know that fact in my head, but when I look at interior photos and try to visualize the layout, I find I keep getting my directions turned around. Am I looking toward the front or toward the back? Toward the left or toward the right? It requires an extra layer of thought, almost like translating from another language. It doesn't help that the Vogue has a more-or-less symmetrical arrangement of windows front to back!

I don't know what you call it but whatever it is that the curtains are hanging from sure is nice and the interior looks brand new. What a nice restoration.

Very kind of you to say so.
Again the restoration was to original spec, reusing original fittings where possible. The curtain tracks and runners are the original and are " hidden " behind a " pelmet "
Cheers

I am really appreciating the galley design. I like the recessed, built-in drainer next to the sink and the fold-down covers that hide the entire galley when not in use. The sink side looks like it might serve as extra counter space when open.

What a masterpiece of functional beauty!

Never heard of a pelmet but I googled it and sure like the idea.

All I can think to say is WOW! That is a thing of beauty. Earlier I commented the exterior is the prettiest trailer I've seen. Now I can say the same of the interior.

Love the looks of those trailers! The folks that designed it, all those years ago, knew form and function. Love the windows, just great. Your restoration was very well done and it looks fantastic. Now if we could just find a mold to start making them again! Maybe the door on the other side for across the pond.
