In LOVE with Shasta Trailers

When I saw this 1966 Shasta trailer for sale, it reminded me of the "glamping nights" when I was a youngster. My grandparents had a cute Shasta trailer that they would bring to my parent's camp, and we had campfire dinners, dressed up in my grandmother's costume jewelry, baked pies in the little oven, had treasure hunts, and my favorite thing was to sleep in the "bed" on the upper level of the trailer.

When I saw this 1966 Shasta Travel Trailer glamper camper for sale in Farmersville, Texas on Facebook, I squealed with delight. It is the same trailer (and color) that my grandparents had, and I've been looking for one to restore when I am retired.

The ad read:  $4,800 Adorable 1966 16' Shasta Travel Trailer. We have painted the inside and outside, new flooring, replaced a front window and removed and corrected the damage from some wood rot. The front door had been replaced by the previous owner along with the sub flooring. And it was done correctly or we would of redone it. We left the original Ice Box for storage, however we added a dorm refrigerator in. Trailer comes with a double hot plate and toaster oven. The oven was removed by the previous owner, however the gas lines still are there if someone wanted to replace it. Comes with portable A/C and all decorations you see. This is a great Camper, ready to roll. She was built right here in the Grapevine, Texas plant and been in Texas all her life. Texas Title in hand. Asking $4800.




  1. Very cool! I hope you were the lucky one that snapped it up:@)

    1. Lynn, I wish I was the lucky one! It was posted on FB at midnight (our time), and I didn't see it until 7 a.m. when I got up. By then, someone had already bought it.

  2. Aww, Debbie, the one that got away. The inaugural trip from TX back to NY sure would have been telling, wouldn't it?

  3. Wish you could've bought it, Debbie, and made the trip to Texas to pick it up!!!
    My sister and I were just talking the other day about all the cute Shasta trailers and how fun it would be to fix one up. I look forward to when you buy one and you can post about it.

  4. Sad this gal didn't get to go home with you. You definitely need to make a trip to Austin. There are numerous food trailers set up around town, and I just bet a few of them might be Shastas. This would have been so cute at your camp. I'm a firm believer that there is always another one waiting to find it, and it's usualy a better price. '-) Good luck in the Shasta Search!

  5. I was hoping the last line would have said that you owned it, Debbie! How adorable it is! And, to think that it was the same style your grandparents had makes it even more special. Good luck on your search :)

  6. Oh I'm so sorry you didn't see this little jewel in time to snap it up yourself! Let the hunt begin and I hope you find just what you are looking for. I see why you love this so, it is adorable!

  7. Debbie, You have such wonderful memories of your childhood! I think there must be a trailer out there with your name on it...keep looking and it will come to you! Linda

  8. I'm drooling!! I also want to find a camper to restore at some point - this one is super cute!! We had a Shasta when we were kids and I have many happy memories of our time spent traveling around in that trailer. Thanks for visiting my blog...and thanks for bringing back those great memories!!
