Hi Folks, I have just finished up another little Vintage Vacations trailer restoration that I am now offering for sale, just in time for Christmas. This 1955 Rainbow has just had a complete restoration that has turned it into the beautiful "turnkey" trailer that you see before you. After the overwhelming response to the 68 Airstream Caravel that I restored/redesigned and offered for sale last spring, I had decided to rebuild and offer 1 more trailer for sale this year. Since all of my work over the past 5 years has either been for clients of myself, here is a rare chance to by a ready to use trailer that I have done to my taste and style without the wait.

I bought this trailer off of ebay last spring and let it collect dust until last month when I took on the task of what turned out to be a very time consuming project. All of the paint was removed and the body was prepped for a complete new paint job. Everything that could be unscrewed, was! All of the windows and trim were removed, acid washed and polished as well as every other piece of chrome and aluminum on the entire trailer. On the inside, everything but the cabinets frames themselves were removed making for a more thorough detailing and refinishing. Some of the details that you can not see in the pictures is the underside of the trailer which is just as nice (Well, almost!) as the interior! Everything was sanded prepped sealed and painted. The trailer has brand new tires and the brakes have been cleaned and adjusted. All of the wiring under the trailer is new. All of the running lights have been replaced with new vintage style lighting including added amber marker lights in the front as this trailer only had rear lights when built. All new "Vintage Vacations" Hehr window rubber seal has been added to all of the windows. With all new plumbing, an added 12 volt system including 2 vintage style ceiling lights, battery and charge line and brake-away device as well as all of the fine detailing that went into this restoration, this trailer is ready to go camping or to the next car show where it will surely steal the show. If you are looking for a project to restore yourself, this is not the trailer for you! This is a turnkey trailer that needs no work at all, it is ready to go. It is of coarse a 50 year old trailer and like most of us, it does have a few blemishes and is not a brand new trailer, but it is the cleanest one you will find for sale!

This trailer is currently registered in California with a clear title I have in

If you have any questions at all about this trailer, please contact me and I will answer them.

Thank you
