Scouring Craigslist I found this 1955 Catolac Deville from the Eastside of the Cascade mountains.  At first I overlooked it but after a month of looking at trailers from the Westside I found that they had a lot of water damage and mold.  So I called about the Deville and the next thing I knew I was headed East to meet up outside of Leavenworth.  As soon as I looked it over I knew that it was in enough good shape that the restore would not be a rebuild!  He was the 2nd owner and had used it for shelter during the hunting season. At the time of the sale the owner didn’t know what make and model it was.  It wasn’t until I got it home that I was able to locate on the internet what it was by its faded original design scheme.
