Abandoned Trailer From The 1950s Opened For The First Time In Decades (Photos)

Back in the 1950s, many things were built to last. Among such items is a 35-foot luxury Vagabond trailer that was built in 1953. This particular trailer is special in that was only used for a few years, and then the couple parked it and it was not touched for decades. Although its exterior appearance did not fade much with time, everyone who saw it assumed the interior was old and shabby.

When people eventually took a look inside the trailer they were stunned to find vintage luxury. These 1950s luxury trailers were actually designed to replace a traditional home, and were marketed to those who moved frequently or “snowbirds” who travel seasonally.

The new owner was amazed at the condition of the Vagabond. Almost everything was immaculate and fully functional. They replaced the old upholstery and carpet, but left everything else, from the wood paneling to the chintz curtains, in the original condition.

The appliances are all original to the trailer and are still in working condition. Amazingly, even after six decades, the refrigerator is humming along in fine form. The trailer also has a working propane stove.

Last but not least, the Vagabond actually has a full-size bathtub; an amenity you won’t find even on high-end modern campers or RVS.

The good news is the Vagabond is hitting the open road with regularity again today, as its new owner is taking it across the country in search of adventure.
