This is a riveted, rare trailer popular after World War II. Many veterans, post war, used these trailers as a family home.
Background: The Westcraft Manufacturing Company of
Los Angeles and later Burbank, California, manufactured two different lines of trailers: Westwood and Westcraft. The Westwood series included the Coronado. This is a top-quality trailer that used aircraft-construction methods with aluminum frame ribs, but they used heavier-gauge aluminum skin panels than many contemporary brands. All Westcraft models had painted exteriors, many in handsome two-tones. During the late 1940s and early ൺs, Westcraft trailers were considered to be among the highest quality trailers on the market. Thanks to their excellent construction, they rarely leaked at the outer seams, vents or windows, areas where many other trailers had problems. Unfortunately, production had stopped by 1955.
