Hey Joe,

I checked out your YouTube video... Fun! Looks like you had a good time producing that.

Thank you, Robert. Yes, I get a kick out of doing them. I acquire and restore vintage travel trailers and find that people really like to enjoy photos. By doing the videos, I can keep a record of those that I have done for others to enjoy. I wish I would have been doing this from the start, but have just been able to get good at doing it over the last year. I have another cool Scotsman restored 12' trailer on Ebay as well that you might want to check out. Also, you can check out my other videos on YouTube!

Thanks again...JB

I drove up to get a look at this trailer today, and I want it! But Robert says, "no."
I guess that it would be considered a 14' trailer, if it were measured from the hitch ball to the back wall (not the bumper) as for the California PTI plate standard. If you measured from the hitch ball to the back bumper it is close to 15'.

The good:
  • No rot in the floor!
  • Solid frame
  • Fiberglass interior (Double shell like Burro)
  • Has 10" brake drums installed to bolt-up flanges on leaf-spring suspension axle
  • 7-pin electric connection
  • Back-up lights (not usually found on this vintage of trailer)

Needs attention:
  • Old, non-OPD propane tank needs to be replaced, and mounted vertically
  • Rear window Gasket has gaps and needs to be replaced
  • Brakes are not connected
  • missing support surface & hardware for front top bunk; has cushion only
  • duct tape on refrigerator door, covering gap from missing panel

All in all, this is in very good condition.

There is quite the bidding war going on for this little 'gem' on Ebay ....and there's still more than 8 days left! I am afraid that it will be quite beyond my pricepoint by the time it sells. Too bad for me But good for you, Joe ! Nice Find!

So Sorry, Pam! I know that it has taken off after only a day and a half. It is rather fitting though because of it's rarity and condition. The eventual buyer is going to get a fabulous trailer!

Best,
JB

Last year I came across the Contempo Condo in an old trailer magazine. I did some research and found out that there was a recall on a previous product made by CONTEMPO CAMPERS, INC. Here is the link.
