I'm a bit surprised no one has mentioned the health dangers of breathing black mold. (I am allergic to black mold, and many others are too.) It's nasty stuff to breathe. Be sure to protect your respiratory system while cleaning this pile of mold. (I don't know how to do this. Ask others or the Internet for advice. A respiratory mask is probably in your future.)

Thank you all again for your suggestions, support, ideas, and of course, the safety reminder.

I hope to begin the cleaning and deeper inspection of the camper this weekend. Should I post progress pics here, start a new thread, or is there a preferred method amongst the group for ongoing project updates?

Thanks!!!!

Greg and Robin

I am allergic to it too.


I would run away from this one. For a few $1,000's you can find one in much better shape.

$0 vs. $2000?

I can have a lot of work done by someone else for a "Few $1,000". And any you can buy in that price range are going to need a lot of work anyway. Although it's bit nasty right now, once referbed, the owner will know that everything is fix and fixed right.

BTW: Please post a list of Trilliums available in that price range, there are lot out here looking for just that.

Greg,
I think that you might start with a small hand sprayer filled with water and bleach! Give it a good spray job, then after a while take hose and wash it down. Bleach should kill to mold and make things a little whiter.
You have a real diamond in the ruff! It will be a fun project! Today you can start making memories. Remember, Elbow grease is cheap! HA!
Good Luck!

Smile A famous quote

"That'll buff right out."

Only you can judge your abilities and commitment. You can have a treasure or trash.

I would firstly talk to the state people and find out about the ownership. Like others have said, it would be sad to put lots of work into this project not to mention hopes and dreams, only to find some legal barrier.

It could turn up stolen, have a lien, or any number of things that would snafu your ownership.

Or at least add a link to this thread in a new one. You could more appropriately title the new thread, with the trailer model for future searches.

Greg,

Some states do not require a title to register old trailers, NH is one.

It's possible.

Have a look at one of mine Restoring Our 1972 Boler American

As for concerns about mold, N95 masks are a common thing today. Cheap protection. Not perfect, but better than nothing. Enough people are certified in fitting them, just ask around. Check your local post secondary schools, they probably have a policy like this one: Mask Fit Test Certificate - Clinical Pre Placement Health Requirements

Awesome info, and I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts and followed all suggested links, which lead to more links, which lead to more links, and before I know it, I'm off looking at some interior plumbing thing instead of the exterior paint options for which I was searching...so much fun, and so much information.

I'm so ready to get to work - is it Friday yet???

It could be worse:
I was sure I was done buying Trilliums for Now

Kinda stalled out on the reno, had to kick my 20 year old out in his trailer, Launch Pad. Now that is done, I guess I might get to work on Humpty Dumpty.

Painting Time

If and when you get to the exterior painting part, be sure to ask lots of questions before buying anything. There are a very few options that will work, short of taking it to Bilz Kustom Painte Shoppe and leaving about 25 of Ben Franklins pics with him, that you can do yourself.
