Bettie Page

A few days ago I met Marilyn who told me she had recently restored a 1951 Spartan Trailer.
The model is a Royal Mansion and the shell is aluminium that Marilyn had professionally polished to near mint condition.
I begged for an invite. I pulled on my hair. I bribed her with vintage crochet pieces that I knew would match Bettie's interior. I considered making demands or crying on the phone when she emailed and graciously allowed me to visit Bettie today.

Bettie is road ready and leaving for a warmer climate in two weeks.

The living room:

It's tragic that I didn't notice the glare across Bettie Page's backside (below) and no, I didn't censor the image.
I can see Marilyn's face in the reflection.
Marilyn named her trailer after Bettie Page. If your the only person in the world who doesn't know who Bettie Page was click on the title.
Marilyn told me she search images on Bettie Page and settles on this one because it resonates with the lamp to the left of the photo.

The honey golden interior wood is Birch:

Inside the front door (there's a back door also off the bedroom):

The kitchen:

Marilyn told me the fabric on the booths is original:

Chartreuse Melmac. Yours truly has a matching set.

The bedroom. Complete with vintage chenille spreads:

The bathroom is also the shower with a drain in the floor and two shower heads:
