This is what I'm starting to look for on my next re-build. I wanted something from 25 to 26 feet +- to fulltime in for 4 to 5 years. I would have bought this one if the timing were better. I want an old cheap one to completely redo the interior. It looked to me I could have put a queen bed sideways in the front, put a U-shaped dinette in the back and had room for a side bathroom, something I would like to do to a 19 foot escape but it just cant be done as it doesn't have the room in front for a queen bed. I have 4 to 5 years to find something like this. Who knows, this one may come back on the market by then.

Loaded? I would guess around 8000 lbs. Cause we know fiberglass trailer are all "light" right?

That does look perfect for what I want, I figure the weight would be high going in on this thing. It allready has the big windows in the back. If I cant find a project trailer we do have an artic fox picked out we like, but I think I could do a pretty cool one frunm scratch. Thanks for the info, and yes, Siesta will be going up for sale in 4 to 5 years if we do this. I want to keep it while a new one is being built to keep us camping.
