Project Overview

23' 1970 Safari

New Aluminum Shower Panels
Electric Tongue Jack
New Water Heater
Rebuilt Bathroom

This rather rare little trailer was delivered to us via flatbed transport due to extensive damage from a fallen tree limb. This is an unusual specimen because they were making Safari's with double axles in 1970, so it must have been a special order. The interior shower area was completely caved in, the ribs bent, and the exterior skin significantly worse for wear. The owner had a dream to eventually travel full time and wanted to get the trailer ship-shape for the journey.

In addition to repairing the frame/skin damage on the interior and exterior, we also thoroughly checked the systems to ensure everything was working properly. We swapped out to an electric tongue jack, replaced the water heater, made various other updates/repairs, and addressed any issues that would have caused the owner problems on the road. 

We must say, the before/after photos certainly make quite an impression! 

Vintage Base Camp would like to give special thanks and recognition to the owner of this trailer for naming it after our late coworker, Craig, who passed away suddenly during this build.
