1957 Avion Rambler 20' Travel Trailer Exhibit "A"

1957 Avion Travel Trailer 20' (A)
1957 Avion 20' Travel Trailer

VIN: 541
Model: R-20 (Rambler)
Length (feet): 20

EXTERIOR: This is a very high quality trailer with riveted construction for long lasting durability. It is a small light weight trailer which can be pulled with almost any SUV. It has the very cool 13 panel front and rear caps which are in nice shape. Exterior has aircraft grade aluminum which can be polished up to a mirror-like shine. Has a few very minor dents on main body. Bottom wraps have the typical small dents and dings. Rear cap has very small dent. Overall this trailer has a very nice exterior shell.

INTERIOR: For an unrestored trailer from 1957, this has a very nice original and intact interior. It still has the original Zolatone paint on the walls which is in remarkably good shape. Has the original birch wood work which would really look sharp if it were sanded down and re-varnished. Floor is solid in all walking areas. Is soft at rear of unit under the beds. Floor has been built up with plywood in the front under the carpet.

RUNNING GEAR: I'm thinking that the axle has been replaced on this trailer with a mobile home type axle. Wheel bearings have been inspected and repacked and we towed this trailer approximately 400 miles with no problems. Has Brand New 7-14.5 LT 10 ply bias tires mounted on mobile home type rims. Has electric brakes in working order. Weighs approximately 2300 lbs. so it can be towed by most SUV's.

ELECTRICAL: Has original electrical system with 2 screw in glass fuses. Does have the power supply cord with the original Tiidee 35 amp plug. All 110 volt outlets work. Has original 110 Volt Lights in working order.

LP SYSTEM: Has the original LP system with the copper LP pigtails. Entire LP system and all appliances should be checked by certified expert before use. Has newer Marshall brand automatic changeover regulator. Original Panalray brand gas furnace. Pilot lights but main burner won't come on. Has 2 - 20# LP tanks. One has the new OPD valve. Has original gas light in working order. Original Preway brand range. All burners and pilots light. Original (I think) Norcold brand gas/electric Refrigerator. Got cold on gas & electric. Water Heater original 110 volt 6 gallon. Untested.

PLUMBING: Has original copper fresh water lines and original copper and plastic drains. Did not see any cracked water lines with visual inspection. Did not test water system with water. No Toilet, but perfect storage area for porti potty under lavatory.

Has newer AM-FM-CD player. This old girl is in pretty nice shape for an un-restored 1957 model. It is small and light weight so it can be towed with most SUV's. Avion is a very good quality trailer and this is a very early model which is pretty rare..

Location: Peru, Indiana
