This is a beautiful and unusual 1957 El Jay camper. Totally vintage and in lovely original condition! I have had it 2 years, and store it in my barn off season. The original stuff is very cool; a Marvel refrigerator, original orange cushions and gingham curtains, beautiful sliding wood cabinets, old heater, stovetop, and even the original fire extinguisher. The camper is a little museum inside. A few minor dings as expected for its age, and a little water staining under windows (from being open in the rain, not leaking). The back piece of wood behind the bunk could be replaced because it has minor staining, but it does not go through and according to the Airstream experts who looked it over, there is no rot. I GSM in Plattsburg, NY check the trailer out when I bought it, and they gave it a thumbs up, and did all maintenance type stuff - repack bearings, do a blower test, reseal leaks, check brakes, etc. It's such an eye-catching camper, looks like a breadbox!
I unfortunately need to sell it, and am motivated at this point. I hardly ever use it except my neighbor and I sometimes sit and have a cocktail in it during the summer. I did not clean it up for the pictures; it cleans up beautifully and would make a lovely summer home! I hope someone gets it that will get it back on the road. It always gets attention!
