Skin off Restoration, 1966 Aristocrat Travelier Trailer

Aristocrat Camper started in the business of building small camper trailers in the 50s to 70s. It became a hit due to the combination of several factors: an aluminum body skin that was durable and lightweight, a low towing weight, a compact interior, and a very retro-cute exterior design.

The company was quite successful, during its operational period Aristocrat successfully sold more than 170,000 trailer units and was declared to be the market leader in the small trailer segment in the 1960s, and was once the world's largest RV manufacturer. One of the reasons for this success was the garageable low profile which was a low-height travel trailer that could be fit into most garages.

The trailers were all built as wood-framed with an aluminum skin as was the convention at the time. This makes them very restorable but also quite susceptible to water intrusion. Furthermore, the I-beam frames and asphalt undercoating means the sturdy build makes for a more logical restoration project.
