This really is a rare opportunity to own one if the rarest vintage travel trailers ever made. The Northwest Coach brand was made by the Gates Furniture company out of Azusa, California. These extremely high end coaches had a fantastic interior that was of the finest quality due to the gates furniture company producing them. Northwest had a handful of models including the “Little Dipper” that was a smaller coach without a bathroom, the extremely rare “Dipper” that was a well equip mid sized coach, the extremely rare “Saturn” that was the highest end single wheel coach and the extremely rare “Saturn II” that has dual wheels and was the largest coach Northwest made.

The coach we have has been the subject of much debate, some feel it could be a Dipper though it it to well equip to be a Dipper. The trailer aficionados (literally the guys who write the books on trailers) feel this could be the last example of the Saturn model. The Saturn was not a great seller due to its price. When Shasta, Cardinal, Fireball and so many others where mass producing trailers focusing on turnout. Northwest was nearly double the price but was a far superior coach.

This thing was top notch in 1968, it offers so much. I’ll post more pictures over the next few days. Thank you for looking. Feel free to ask any questions but please don’t call or text after 9 pm. Aaron show contact info . Please leave a message. With all the scammers and robo calls I won’t answer numbers I don’t know. Located in Salinas ca.

Clean and currently registered, zero issues with that.

This coach has been a show stealer when we take it to trailer events. In 15 years we have never seen or heard of another one nationwide. In person or online. This is a really rare trailer. Look for yourself! I’ve put a few ads from the company just for fun, as well as two pictures from a “Little Dipper” model that sold in Sacramento for 29k. I can’t tell you how rare these campers are. Thank you and I have a video of the inside if needed. Thx
