I've been kicking around an idea that required a totally stripped out 13' trailer, but I have too much on my plate right now and I don't need another project!

So far over my head. I can't do this. This will be cleaned a bit and put up for sale. I am in no way handy and have limited funds.

Kristi, take a deep breath! This can be a wonderful oppurtunity for you. If you look at the albums in my profile, my lil red vardo I built, which is now officially gone, my ParkLiner can come home next weekend! YAY! Now the lil red vardo is the 2nd trailer I built. Prior to the first, I never built anything...zero...squat. I spent alot of time reading about what people did, and am also on a very limited budget, and did it slowly.

The most important thing is makeing it legal and safe to tow. If the axle is good, or even if it needs to be replaced as long as its towable, you can use an air mattress and a cooler and a porta pottie in the begining. Then slowly tackle one project at a time...there is no better feeling then getting complimented that you did a great job. Most things are not really as complicated as they seem once you read about them and how it was done. Don't sell yourself short...confidence! (this is probably why the principal at my school calls me Mr Rogers lol) Take lots of pictures and ask lots of questions. There is a wealth of knowledge on the internet and just think how awesome it will be when you make it customized just for you! I almost went this route, but the place I would have rebuilt a camper at was kinda destroyed in Hurracaine Sandy, and my mom gave me grief about me and my "projects" I just got real lucky with getting my ParkLiner.... but still have a dozen projects to do on it and its a 2012 lol.

What do you want for it? Where in Arizona? Are you close to Vegas?
I've been gathering stuff for my 19' and have changed my mind so many times I have double and triple for most everything. Plus I just pulled the benches out yesterday and am pulling the base cabinets out today. I have two new convertors because I decided to go with the PD4045 instead of the PD9060. 3 sinks, 2 fridges 1 DC and 1 propane, 3 styles of flooring, 2 stove tops, etc, etc. It is a sickness I tell ya!

Thank Deryk. Deep breath taken. I really don't need much. I can bring an icebox and a bbq for a while. I have a portable AC.
I felt overwhelmed when I found my own personal water reservoirs inside. I am siphoning and using a coffee can to bail out the water now. Something was mounted on the back and drilled holes were left unplugged. Windows are not sealed. There is lumpy discolored insulation all around.

Steve, I would probably sell if offered enough, but with the problems I am mentioning here, I doubt I would get it. Are you selling your extras? I am in Tucson. Let me know.

As long as the shell is good, its all fixable. Seal the holes once you get it bailed out.... try to find out who made it, would help alot.

For a temporary fix chewing gum works wonders to plug a leak LOL! I had the PD9060 convertor in the swap meet at the Quartzite Rally and it didn't sell for $100 which is what I paid for it "slightly used". If you were in the area I'd just give you a lot of the old stuff like the sink, faucet, old fridge. The old Dometic work sometimes on propane but not on electric. Could be an easy fix and it looks good. I also have a brand new Norcold N400 4.5 cu ft that I'd sell for $700. I'm going all 12v for my fridge.

I would go with you on that David, would seem very unlikely someone would bother to round off a Trillium like that.

What I find interesting is that not only was the front window filled in but it looks like the trailer had a front kitchen or something else up front as there was also what looks like a vent opening at the front that has also been filled in & I dont think Scamp did any vents up at the front like that.

Due to the closeness of the photos posted by the OP of the inside I cant tell what I am looking at so hard to tell if the inside gives any clues as to what it might be or once was. I did see at the rear inside under the window the same wall curves as Scamp uses.

Being in Arizona, my guess would be an old "window" A/C location.

If you ever want out of this let me know what you'd want as-is.

It appears they put a different window that was originally more squared because I see the cutout at the corners of the windows. Also there are numbers stamped on the tongue of the trailer. 90206 C3463 (military?) No brand info anywhere.

Kristi you have a photo that shows the rear lights and the bumper - the lights & bumpers can sometimes give away what it is/was.

The upper rear driving lights on the trolley top should be a good clue but I've got nothing.

Toward the back of the egg on the ceiling is a bar. Is that a clue? I will get a picture of the bumper tomorrow.
