Description
We bought this from the estate of the original owner with the original title! The Mobile Lodge was also known as the ""canned ham"" because of it's shape and polished aluminum! This one has been restored and is functional. It's smaller size makes it desirable as a display behind your 1955 car or in your collection. It is usable for a weekend of camping or if the mother-in-law comes to visit! These are very collectible, especially in good condition.

The restoration .....
was done just prior to us purchasing it in 2017. It's been in heated storage since. We have one of the best vintage camper displays anywhere, this was on display until we swapped it out for a different one.

Exterior: The roof was replaced. Wheel bearings were packed, tires were replaced. It has a new propane tank and gas line. New locks and door hardware. New hitch chains. The windows, doors and vents open properly. A fold out step was added. The aluminum is overall good. It has been polished shiny. We pulled it out of storage for the pictures, the black marks are polish residue that needs to be cleaned off.

Interior: New 110 wiring with outlets, it has a water and electric hookup on the driver's exterior. The maple paneling, cabinets and trim were replaced. New maple laminate flooring. Cushions, upholstery and matching curtains were installed. New stainless backsplash and countertops with original metal edges. A Thetford camping toilet is included, still new in the box. The original cooktop and draining ice box are in excellent condition. It has a comfortable full size bed with new bedding. The dinnete also collapses into a bed. It has a closet.

It is 14 feet long including the tounge, 7'1"" wide and 8'4"" tall. Inside is 73"" tall, 80"" wide and 12' long. It weighs 2,900 lbs. It uses a 2 inch ball and a 5 pin harness.

This item is from our museum display. We literally have thousands of the coolest vintage items on display that we have collected over many years. We have so many items that we are renting 4 warehouse units to store what doesn't fit on display in our museum. It is time to let some items go, reluctantly! Check the Museum Vault tab under inventory, items will be added regularly. These are hard to find, unique pieces. Each item is sold as-is. We can arrange shipping on any item to anywhere.

Financing is only available from us on the cars we sell. We apologize for the inconvenience.
