1954 Jewel Travel Trailer
This adorable 15 foot trailer is a classic mid-century design call a "Canned Ham". Called such, because it's shaped like a canned ham of course. The interior of this Jewel is all original, with stove/oven combo, original linoleum flooring and icebox. Check out the stunning rounded birch cabinets giving these classic trailers the other nickname of "Birch Beauties". It's all decked out with vintage camping gear and well appointed with fabulous fifties memorabilia.
