Identify This Fibreglass Fifth Wheel

This free trailer is about just east of Calgary. At first I wondered if it wasn't a Transcontinental Coach, but I have photos of one, and it is a bit different. It clearly has the letter 'C' on the front.

FREE 5TH WHEEL CAMPER | travel trailers, campers | Calgary | Kijiji

It could be a great project trailer for someone. It does look like some fibreglass repair is needed to the front loft area.

Here is the text from the ad.

Wow ...that looks like a project for someone who may be finished with a Trillium and a canoe - and doesn't know what to do with all their spare time .....

ROFLMAO

Aren't you the funny (but truthful) one.

You forgot to mention all the mods I plan to do when I get my 5.0TA.

The preliminary list right now is quite long, as I am sure the final will be. I am having fun planning what I would like to do. I will likely plan a few weeks off work to work on it full time to finish at least what I need to.

That is about what it will cost me. Pics will definitely follow.

It kinda looks that way, but has too large of a loft for it to be that though.

This is a photo of the Transcontinental Coach I took in Sitka, AK in June. Similar design, but not the same.
