Ironing Board Update...

My suspicions were on track and THIS is in fact a ironing board storage bracket. A few folks were nice enough to point it out and give me the info I needed. VSTF member Distant75 sent me some additional info...
Here are the measurements he sent me...

I hope to reproduce this item for our trailer at some point. It is one of those original features that makes the Shasta a Shasta. Again, not a critical item but hey, I think it is a feature from a bygone era. You don't usually see a ironing board in a 16 foot trailer now a days. Not exactly looking forward to ironing my slacks at a State park or anything like that. I hope this helps another owner recreate their ironing board if they wanted to.

Hi, I'm restoring a 1967 Aloha Travel Trailer and ran across your blog. Keep up the good work!

We're having some work done on a 1966 Aloha....has a plywood ironing board sure enough. Did these come with the trailers when they were new?

Yup. The ironing boards were a factory produced item. It was a different time then...

The ironing boards are great little buffet tables or martini stations once camped. The Sisters on the Fly often use them that way and they look fab set up outside the trailer.

Perhaps that was the original idea by Shasta? :-)
