Posted ImageHere's a few of my vintage travel trailers. All 1/87 scale. Green striped one is a 1955 Nashua kit by City Classics, then I took another City Classics kit and weathered it. The pink one is a '59 Pacemaker bi-level (yes, they actually made these), an older kit by Bachman/Plasticville.

1/87? That's HO, right? Very small. I agree, how cool would it be to see kits like this in 1/25 scale!

Yes, HO scale (1/87). I too would love to see some old trailer kits in 1/25. These little guys will become part of my 1/87 scale vintage trailer park one of these days. I've got some others to build too. Someone put a vintage hand built 1/25 scale '58 Kozy coach on ebay, looks to be made out of sheet styrene, awesome job, full detail inside and everything, but it's quite expensive.
