Smile Listen to me

STOP! ˇALTO!

Unless you have either lots of time and money to pour into this thing or are skilled with fiberglass.

OK To have an uncontrolled itchy trigger finger is one thing but to not take responsibility and blame your spouse is entirely another.

Brilliant in a sense!

Buy the thing and get it over with you are not kidding anyone here least of all me.

I have 3 in my Driveway right now and it is not the first time and I still look every day!

$500 sounds like a good starting point. The overall cost of a project should fall short of the enjoyment and satisfaction. Of course this is relative, high end finishes require high end prices which produce high end results. I for one prefer to have something to do instead of something to watch on TV so I'm biased.

But as you requested... stop thinking about it and just do it. Maybe that's not what you had in mind but it's how I see it.

"Stop me"

Ok - you said to stop you.

Well, because this is a forum comprised of folks who actually care, we looked into whether or not there are any locally-available treatment facilities and/or rehab places.

We have also contacted your family and we are urging them to consider an intervention because we care.

I would not hesitate to pick it up. Starting with a shell means you can do anything with it.

I made so many mistakes the 1st time around.
I want to pull all of the mistakes out and have a do-over.

The very 1st thing I'm going to do is strip it down to nothing but frame & axle, 2 wheels (no spare), fiberglass shell, existing 3/4" plywood/sheet vinyl floor, and windows & door. No furniture, no cushions, no battery, no water tank. Then I will weigh it.

I want to try to build the legendary 950 pound trailer.

Pictures from the original ad

This is one of the three trailers I now consider un-savable. I want to flesh out the information with these pictures I saved from the original ad.

This is one of the other un-save-able trailers

I forget what the owner wanted for this, but it was something like $2500. The ad said it was crushed under a pine tree for several years.
