This 1934 Covered Wagon trailer is a charming throwback to the dawn of the modern recreational vehicle. Prior to spending many years in a significant collection, it is understood that this trailer spent over 60 years with the second owner, who used it for his annual family pilgrimage to the Kentucky Derby. The restored, period-correct dark green leatherette exterior conjures images of fly-fishing adventures and camping in Yellowstone Park in the 1930s. The interior is exceptionally original, complete with 1934–vintage linoleum floors, wooden cabinets and window curtains. Numerous fascinating details include period-correct food boxes, tins, maps, travel guides, and even a vintage radio. Factory original fittings include the icebox, Readykook camp stove, heater and porcelain sink.

Very few of these early travel trailers have survived, and it is rare to see them restored with such care and attention to detail. Exceptional authenticity sets this trailer apart from other restored examples, with the incredibly detailed interior being a particular highlight. Paired with an appropriate era classic car, this Covered Wagon is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at any number of concours events.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/af19.
