1969 Aristocrat Lo Liner

I found this girl on the net about 3.5 hours away back in 2013 and pulled her home to rebuild for my son and I to take camping trips around the area. I had to use my dads S10 to go get her, Clyde wasn't in a mood to drive that far at the time.

I thought she was in pretty good shape but knew she had some water damage and proceeded to take her apart.

Here is my progress..

first pix are when I pulled her home and then when I stuck her in the garage for tear down.

Re: 1969 Aristocrat Lo Liner

quick look at what I had. She didnt have much damage and all of it was dry from sitting in an warehouse for 10 plus years...

Re: 1969 Aristocrat Lo Liner

I removed all the windows and the molding at the top of the trailer that runs front to back so I can reseal everything with the special tape stuff and I have most of the windows back in. I had to remove the dinette ( one side) to replace the wall nearest the door, was real bad since the door was whopper-jawed. Siding is all back on, I used some spare Tyvek under the skin to hopefully prevent this again, also I used fiberglass resin on the bottom 6" of the boards for the same reason, those should never suck water again.

More pix to come when I get back out there to work on her.

Thank you sir!

I felt like I bit off too much but since I have just taken a small bite at a time, it doesn't seem to be too awful bad...only thing is I got laid off last September and haven't found the right job so $ is slim....I am working at Lowes right now and it is paying most of the bills but no extra at all.

I would even entertain selling her if someone wanted to finish....until that time, ill keep plugging away...only a few more pieces of wood to replace and then the skin goes back on...then the windows...

Re: 1969 Aristocrat Lo Liner

Thanks Joe!

I bought this to gut and rebuild. I have found this was A LOT bigger than I thought, I didnt really have the skills to take it on and it was going to take far longer than I anticipated(2years so far).

I hired a company to start and they tried to screw me but I was smarter than they thought.

Re: 1969 Aristocrat Lo Liner

Update: I havenít touched my trailer for over a year, I never have time to do any work on her because I am working on my truck as well as working on my Kubota tractor and also full time day job!

So...I sent her to someone who has time and talent.

I have tons of pictures, what are you looking for?

I have more to do, this is not a show winning trailer, I wanted it clean, warm, dry and safe. I am working on rebuilding the rear hatch door, some interior moldings and the upholstery also.

Re: 1969 Aristocrat Lo Liner

The interior looks in good shape. I have a 1967 Shasta that the farmer who now owns the field around my home gave me that was 1/2 a mile behind the house back in the woods. I believe the original owners of my house put it back there to use as a hunting shack. It took a lot to get it up out of the dirt it had sank into and get new wheels on it. I now have it up to my place but it was trashed by woodland creatures and needs a total renovation head to toe. Wish it was in as good of shape as yours. I hope to restore it to pull behind my 64, but first I have to get the 64 done. If only I had more time and money. Hope you have fun with it.

Re: 1969 Aristocrat Lo Liner

I’ve had mine for 3+ years, found it cheap enough and did tons of rot repair. I found myself at a point where I just do not have time to put it back together so I paid someone to do that...overpaid them actually but...I can now camp in it. I took the cushions to the upholsterer and ask them to have them done by Christmas. I want to go camping after Jan 1st, weather permitting.
