1937 Pierce-Arrow Model C Travelodge Camper

The Great Depression put many automakers in peril. To help survive, Pierce-Arrow expanded into travel trailers. The smallest of their three offerings was the Model C. Measuring 13.5', it used a steel frame covered with sheet aluminum, lined with beechwood, and finished with linoleum flooring. This particular example is in outstanding shape, having only two owners since 1956, and outfitted with a wood-burning stove, hand-pumped sink, insulated icebox, and modern safety glass windows. It comes with a few period-correct accessories, as well, including blue speckleware dishes, a Philco table radio, and a three-piece luggage set.
