An adventure in renovating a vintage travel trailer.
1962 Metzendorf Travel Trailer

Welcome to my road to renovating my 1962 Metzendorf Travel Trailer. The Metzendorf is a unique trailer in that it is only 6 foot 4 inches high, small enough to fit in a garage. Mine is the 15 foot version. The unit includes a drop floor so most people can stand in the middle of the camper. It also came with a furnace, 2-burner stove, propane refrigerator and closet for a portapotty. She is also wired for 110 and 12v. The camper sleeps 4 when the dinette is turned into a bed. I am attempting to renovate her to be respectful of 1962 while keeping the cost down.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain

"Everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so you can appreciate them when them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
