Linda is that Canadian dollar? I don't understand the exchange, but I would say No that is not toooooo much! Like I said in another post, I have only seen 3 now. 2 for sale, 1 on the homepage of this forum. If it's in decent shape, and you like it then I don't think it's to high. I personally would love to own one just for the retro factor and how unique they are. Let us know if you end up buying. Robin

Yes, that is 3,200 Canadian, so a about 2,900 US. We're going to take a pass on this one. Not enough room for the fur-kid (he would take up all the floor space) and it needs a fair amount of TLC.

Thanks for posting the pictures. It looks more roomy inside than I thought it would. There is an 84 Miti-lite for sale near here and the sellers pics aren't very good, I wasn't really interested until I saw yours, now...?

Question though, he's asking 3,200 for it and doesn't mention a fridge or heater/furnace, just a stove and sink. Do you think this is too much?

Thanks,
Linda.
I just saw the photos of the Mity Lite in question. Looks like some pretty extensive remodeling to me. That may be bad or good. The original cabinet doors are pretty cheap & ugly. The ones in the photo look like they may be an improvement, just depends on the skill of the remodeler. Where the refer usually goes, it looks like the space is now cabinetry. It kind of looks from the photos that they preferred the cabinet storage to a refer or icebox. Probably went with a Coleman cooler in the tow vehicle.

There is definitely no heater in that one, just as there was none in mine, even originally. I put a "T" on the propane line & found a nifty little safe portable that we can hook up when necessary.

Hope that helps,

-Gary

Hi Gary,
This little gem is mine that I'm selling. Yes the whole inside of the Mity-lite has been redone 3 years ago. The person I bought it off of redid the inside and he wripped the ice box out. I never replaced it but the area is still there in the cabnets to put one back in if the future owner wanted to put one back in.

It's quit funny that Linda felt the Mity-lite needs a fair bit of TLC. Yes it the original exterior with the sticker for where it even came from in Shelton, Wa. as well I believe the orginal canvas. The Mity-lite aka the lil button is 25 years old so I'm not sure what she is looking for. I will try and put up some more pic's for the forum.

I have really enjoyed my little trailer and it really is so unique and rare. As I'm sure you are already figuring out. I too have had people follow me and stop me just to ask questions and see it. As well in all the camp grounds, people can't get enough of it. I should have started to taking admission 2 1/2 years ago when I bought it. You will just luv yours, I certainly have.

Anyone who decides to buy the lil button will really enjoy it as I know I have.

Angela

I sure wish there was one in the old north west (read Minnesota / Wisconsin). I have never seen one or heard of one for sale anywhere near here.

wow.. that thing is "huger" on the inside than I expected!

The higher ceiling when deployed would be great... even for short little old me!

Or is the person in the photos very tiny? (Don't laugh; I've seen some boat selling photos where the interior looks huge, and then it turns out that the person is 5'0" tall, which really does make a big difference in how big the space looks, as I guess one's eye is used to judging by someone who is more like 5'10" or something like that.)

They do look nifty!

Gary,
I have question for you? Does yours have the two pads on top for a boat like the one Andrew Gibbons saw in Alberta as well as mine? You know it is funny more and more I think every Mity-lite or Miti-lite or Spacemaster Mity-lite like Rick Hansens are all the same or similiar fiberglass molds but it appears maybe everyone might have been custom built to suit the purchasers needs? As they all seem to be very close but none the same. The one with the sighting in Alberta by Andrew Gibben's posting back in 2007 appears to be the closest looking one to mine. Down to the two boat pads on top as well as the exact same decal and logo on the side.

No, no boat pads on ours. Interesting theory about custom builds, especially considering the one that had the boat attached perfectly to the top. You may be on to something there.

I do hope you post some more interior pics. I could tell it was custom cabinetry in there, but it was obscured by shadows. It looks like the front cabs now have some sort of stepped countertop or something.

Someone else asked in another post if my wife is small, & if that was what made it look huge on the inside. Probably some truth in that, but I'm 5-11 and have no trouble standing fully erect at the kitchen counter. I'm sure you'll agree that for it's incredibly small footprint, these things offer an amazing amount of usable and comfortable space.

-Gary

Hi Gary,

I will take some more pic's this weekend and try and post them on here. I was able to post the one but that was it. It said they downloaded but didn't show up. Robin G was nice enough to post them for me. If I can't I will put them on a photo page and post the link.

The cabinets were redone by the guy I bought it off of in Feb 2007. He redid the floors and countertop and painted the inside a light sky blue. He redid the lights as well. He told me when he bought it in Point Roberts. He said it was in nasty shape when he bought it and redid it all inside. The only thing he hadn't done was the upholstery. I reupholstered the cushions and made the curtains myself the first month I had it. It has two sets of wiring hooked up to it. I guess in the states it is 5 or 7 prong and here in Canada it is 4 prong. I never had the original removed.

It's really amazing how big our little trailer our. I'm sure yours has the same size bed (queen) which is used as the table top as well.

It seems like I have another different thing on the lil button as well. I'm not really sure as to what they are for, but it's on both sides of my trailer. They are flat screws all the way around except the front of my trailer. I will take pic's of that as well, maybe someone will know why they are there. The only thing I can think of is maybe it has something to do with if a person was to put a boat on top. hense the two boat pads I have on mine. Mind you the pic from 2007 with the one with the boat doesn't seem to have them on it so not really sure? These little trailers are a bit of a mystery.

As for the space in side, I do agree. I can't believe all the storage space, I have storage in each of the three bunches. In the kitchen area like you say is high, a person over 6' can stand up with out hunching.

I'm still thinking they were all individually custom done for the purchaser. I've always wondered how many they actually sold. I don't think is was very many as they are really rare little ones.

Anyway Gary I will most definately post more pic's

Angela

This is just for fun:

Washington doesn't allow vanity plates on trailers, but we made up this one in Photoshop & laminated it, then we hang on the back when camping.
