A couple of Sundays ago I kidnapped Heffe post California Burrito at Tacos Por Favor and we fought the road warriors up the PCH to Will Rogers State Beach to take a look at an little piece of gypsy heaven via 16321 Pacific Coast Hwy — a tiny fantasy that seeded itself into my mind the night before as I stumbled upon a little Trulia gem.
Our vintage Shasta 16-SC is completely gutted. At some point in time, after removing the kitchen and most of the original furniture, someone took a bucket of flat grey paint to the interior and covered up all of the birch. The dude was okay with this because he wanted to rebuild the entire interior from scratch.
Stumbled upon this camper for sale in Wisconsin. Price tag is around $4k on Tiny House Listings.
Dude and I are into it though b/c we are planning out our floor plan and its always nice to have a look inside to see what the original was like.
How do you find the VIN number on an old vintage shasta camper? I found mine by scraping off years and years of paint layers off of the trailer tongue.
We loaded up and took a trip down to Santa Ana to check out our Craigslist find, and here is what we saw. She’s not so pretty as-is, but is just the right shape. Since Heffe is so keen on rebuilding the entire interior on his own, we were happy with the guts and didn’t care too much about original appliances,
