On the surface, Dottie’s interior looks pretty good. The previous owners of our trailer had good intentions of restoring her, but had only gotten as far as a cosmetic upgrade inside. They went with a 1950’s car theme, complete with checkerboard tile, fuzzy dice, and a serious sound system. The entire inside of the trailer has been painted in a black and white scheme.
The kitchenette still has the original icebox, sink, and plumbing fixtures. Unfortunately, the original cabinet hardware has been replaced with dice-themed drawer pulls. We will be searching for period correct replacement pulls. We are debating about whether to install a refrigerator conversion kit, or keep the icebox as is. The dinette cushions have been recovered in black vinyl, although the original mustard yellow upholstery is still visible underneath!
