Want to Buy Apeco "Small World" trailer

I just missed an opportunity to buy a very unusual camper and now I'm on a mission to find another one.

The Apeco trailers were made in the 1970's, and they made very few of them. All fiberglass with a very '70's style. See photo.

I would prefer to find one that needs work, but I would consider one in very good condition.

I'm in Connecticut, but I can travel to find the right one.

My new acquisition! Apeco "Small World"

I've recently acquired a very rare fiberglass trailer. It's a 1973 Apeco "Small World". It was gifted to me by a very generous family in California. They are the original owners!
I hope to document to process of renovating this marvelous trailer. Here are some photos of the very beginning of this process:

That's intriguing. Congratulations and welcome to the forum! The body appears to be in good condition. Would love to see pics of the interior.

Wow! Rare trailer, one owner, California all the way to Connecticut after a needle-in-a-haystack search for just that specific model... This has all the makings of a great molded fiberglass documentary.

Can’t wait to see more!

We saw one of these in pretty rough condition next to an old gas station in a small town north of of Tampa about 5 years ago. Maybe I can find the pictures we took then. Donna Dee...do you remember our posting about this?

Found them! It was Jan., 2016 from Old Town, FL on highway 19/98. The For Sale sign was unreadable as to phone or price.
