It is with a heavy heart that are choosing to sell our dear, Gidget! Beautifully restored and decorated, this little camper has given us many wonderful memories. Our family of 5 has recently become, 6. As much as we have talked about cramming inside for the next several years, we have set our eyes on something a little bigger and are moving on to new adventures!
Asking Price: $8,900
- Located in Livonia, MI – We will not deliver, you must come prepared to tow it away!
- 16′ long (not including tongue)
- Approximately 1,800 pounds dry weight (we had her weighed while we were in the remodeling phase, so this may have changed just slightly)
- 1956 Century, made in Detroit by the Federal Trailer Co
- We purchased a few years ago and completely gutted and restored the interior and painted the exterior
- No AC, but we installed a 12V ceiling vent fan that works wonders!
- Sleeps 4 to 5: Table converts to a bed which can fit 2 adults (but it’s tight!), full size bed in the back with a single bunk over top. My husband and I got cozy and slept in the front on the fold down table, while the kids slept in back.
- No bathroom, but we purchased a little marine style toilet that worked great for the kids.
- Working sink with new faucet
- Spacious refrigerator with freezer (can fit a full size milk jug)

- Awning and poles
- Table that attaches outside camper
- Frame has been re-welded and reinforced anywhere that was showing signs of weakness. Tongue was extended.

- Not all windows open and there are a few screens missing
- Threshold of door needs to be reinforced with new metal trim
- You get the charm of a 1956 trailer, but she needs continued attention and maintenance. I check her over every Spring to watch for leaks and make sure to re-caulk anywhere that is showing signs of age or cracking.
