We’re in a terrible recession. What if you lost your home or apartment and had to live in a trailer park? Could you? Would you? I’m kind of fascinated by trailer parks. I have to stare when we pass them on the road. I think I’ve been to one once in my life. Perhaps I lived in one in a past life. That’s why there are 3 cars in my driveway and a bunch of broken furniture. Since the history of the mobile home only dates back to the 50’s and I was born in the 60’s, I probably never did live in a trailer. Unless I died at a very young age.

Ok, now that I’m finished rambling on about that, let’s have a look at some aesthetically pleasing mobile homes. Really!

We have a 1956 Stewart Coach custom trailer that needs a lot of love and are trying to find a refurbishing company that may be interested in buying it. It has a staircase that leads to two full bdrms upstairs with 1/2 bath and downstairs has two twin bedroom. There is a full bathroom on the main floor. We live in Riverton, Wyoming and it must be move before November 15th. Do you know of anyone that might be interested. It’s 8’wide by 56′ long and it is cool. It belonged to my husbands grandparents. My husbands cell is 307-850-7242 if you have questions. Thanks for your time. Sonja Fairfield Wk No. 307-856-6944
