Pearl goes to Sandwichfest

Today was a ton of fun.  I brought the Pearl to Sandwichfest to promote Historic Homes of Cape Cod.  The day started out rainy - as in, severe thunderstorms.  But even so, I had fun chatting with people who stopped by to take a look inside the trailer.  I love how the Pearl brings a smile to people's faces.  I often hear that someone's uncle, or mother or grandfather had one just like it...  It's a great conversation starter and it definitely brings back warm memories.

Do you use your vintage trailer in your business?  If so, please share your experience, photos or links.

Making your own table for a Shasta Compact

If your Shasta didn't come with its original table, here's some dimensions to help in making your own.

The dimensions are 24" wide by 39" long, 27 5/8" high (to top of table).  One end of the table has squared corners the other end (the end that faces out) has 2" radius corners.

The aluminum edge on the table is similar to what can be found at New York Metal - called "nose edging"

Here are some photos to show how the underside is put together:

Our table has metal trim around the edge of the laminate
and has a folding table leg.  The table must slide off of the wall bracket when the leg is folded under.
It does not fold down against the slanted outside wall.

Hardware the folds the table underneath 

This photo shows the hardware that attaches the table to the wall
