"Princess Fiona" – Floor Plan

A Brief History

We originally thought we could keep as much of this trailer as original as possible, but soon realized that it needed a rebuild. We replaced the floor with a pine green, period correct material, lined the walls with green laced cork panels that lead up to varnished birch, and covered the ceiling with a soft vinyl. We remodeled most of the bathroom, but left the avocado green tub that inspired the rest of the trailer’s color palette. It only takes a few minutes inside the trailer to appreciate its layers.

Avion Coach Corporation was founded in 1955 with the same idea as so many other trailer manufactures: to build a better trailer than Airstream. Their arguably superior build quality gained a big following in the marketplace. Avion was purchased by Fleetwood in 1976 who continued to build travel trailers under the name until the mid 1990’s. You will still see many Avions on the road, just keep an eye out for their anodized aluminum exteriors.
