For Sale: Impeccably Restored & Modernized 1950 Westcraft Capistrano Trailer

1950 Westcraft Capistrano Calypso Trailer for sale luxury restoration

Available for sale: A 1950 Westcraft Capistrano Trailer named “Calypso” – one of only two in the world. This stunning work of functional art (picture it as a guest house or a pool house overlooking the ocean) is the product of 11 years of work by a team committed to transforming it from a slightly forlorn collector’s item into a move-in ready piece of art and history.

The restoration included the trailer’s return to spectacular, period-authentic style both interior and out by one of the most acclaimed restoration professionals in the country – but with high-end, luxury amenities that bring it into the modern age.

The goal was NOT to restore this trailer to the original mint condition, but to create an even more opulent antique style based on the original 1930’s Art Deco design, thereby adding many new elements to attain a much higher level of luxury and elegance than the original had. 

In addition, many modern practical and luxury appliances were installed for truly comfortable living – but all of them are completely hidden in cabinets and behind curtains, so that when all cabinets are closed, the trailer looks and feels like an antique vintage specimen in absolute mint condition.

To achieve this double goal, almost all elements of the interior had to be meticulously designed from scratch and handcrafted in the shop, with the assistance of third party specialists working on the metal elements, such as water-jetting and bending aluminum, cutting and forming stainless steel, polishing and chroming, as well as high-quality painting, especially on the exterior.
