Bon Voyage Little Camper

The camper has been adopted by a great family. I am happy that the new owners are enthusiastic about joining the family of vintage campers. I will leave this blog as a reference for other Metzendorf owners. I encourage all to get out in the woods and unplug!

Metzendorf For Sale! $4,499 Again June 2014!!

We have decided to really put her for sale. I am listing her here first while I develop the full listing, inventory and photos. We have brought her back down to White Plains, New York. This is where it will stay until sold.

There are no leaks on the camper. When I got her, Fletch from Fletcher's Vintage Trailer went fully over her. Many parts of the camper are original, to include most of the original speckle paint. The cushions and bed are all made from Ikea comfy latex mattresses. I furnace and two burner stove works, but I have not gotten the small gas fridge working. I didn't really try --  just use it for storage.

I will post more soon. But for now, you can go through the blog to see every thing I have done. I am selling her for $3,999. Feel free to email me at corbitt.tracey (at)

Calling all Metzendorf Owners!

Some asked me what size tires/wheels the Metzendorf has. Since mine is in the mountains, I can't check. Can someone post what is on their Metz?

Summer in the Green Mountains

The camper has her home for the summer. There will be no traveling about this summer to the Catskills and Adirondacks. Hopefully she will get some use as a guest cottage. The camper makes the cottage look huge -- and it isn't!

Another summer!

This weekend I am taking the camper up to Vermont. She will be serving as a guest cottage at our primitive camp up in the Green Mountains. It sure will be nice to have our garage free for other stuff! Where we live, all RVs must be stored in a garage. The Metzendorf is probably the largest camper that fits in a garage...without being a pop-up.

The 1962 Metzendorf is for Sale!

I have decided to put her for sale. The price is $5,000. I am only selling it so someone else could enjoy it and fully restore it.  However, if I can't get the asking price come June, I will just park her on my property in Vermont. If she were fully restored, I surely would ask for more. The trailer is located in the lower Hudson Valley, NY.

You can flip back through the blog and see everything I did to her. The fridge doesn't run, but is still all there. The furnace works and the two burner stove works. Fletcher's Vintage trailers rewired and put in new plumbing lines. Most of the original speckle paint is in good shape. If you are interested, please email me at corbitt.tracey at or respond to this post.

Considering selling my Metzendorf

I can't believe it, but I am considering selling my Metzendorf. I love the little camper, but we have purchased land in with a primitive camp in VT. I still may just park it there and use as a spare bedroom but am starting to think that I should let her be adopted by someone who really wants this special little camper. I won't need a camper this size to keep in my garage (the law where I live).

I may just keep her through this summer and finish a few things I wanted to do and see how she works out. Our thinking is that we might want to get something a little larger as the spare bedroom...although the camp is pretty small.  It is less than 400SF... so may the little camper will be just perfect!
