What an amazing find! I thought these sorts of stories were more legend than fact.

And I wouldn't molest this time capsule with any modifications or customizing. We're going with the 70s flow with our Ventura buy furnishing it with period contents, e.g., Corningware coffee perc, etc. Too bad that the floor was redone with laminate, but I'm tempted to pull it up to see if the original vinyl is in reasonable condition.

You shouldn't have to worry about the orangey plaid seat covers for a long time. I've seen photos of well used and abused Venturas with the upholstery intact. Our covers our still like new - but we replaced the foam. They're some tough fabric, for sure.

Are you going to fill out the warranty card and mail it in?

Glenn I see in addition to the fridge you also have a 12 volt furnace so the trailer must have had a battery on it at some point. It not uncommon for people to take the battery off the trailer when it goes to storage.... so you are probable just need to find where the connection was located - under a seat? or on the front tongue behind the propane tank?
