Yikes! A good reason to keep a fire extinguisher in your trailer.

It does look like the fiberglass melted around the vents. Might possibly have other issues. It certainly at least needs gutting right down to the fiberglass. The subfloor may be burned as well. Certainly not for the timid!

If I recall, Casita's have a full fiberglass floor as well. If the integrity of the shell is good and that looks a bit questionable then it might be possible. Eradicating the smell, etc. from fire damage is an art. Don't think I'd personally want to take the chance on this one.

Complete gutting of the interior. A trick Tom Haney showed me was to drill two inch holes at each end through the floor and install pvc plugs as drains. Then you can wash and hose the whole inside. Since things like clothes and toilet paper didn't burn, it looks like it could be worth doing although with the fees being $200 and the bidding up to $300, the cost is approaching the "not worth it" amount.

I was thinking that for the cost... the air conditioner, tires, awning, stove, windows and even the frame would be worth the salvage. the rack on the back must be $100 bucks?

true, just noticed the fees... will likely go to a dealer who will gut it for every part possible then sell the shell as an ice fishing hut.

This is the first "broken" trailer that is so bad even I wouldn't tackle it!

It looks like an inside out burned marshmallow!

I don't think the fiberglass around the vents is melted but all the plastic trim and the inside AC panel is.

Anyone here bidding on this? I was going to at the $300 level, but then thought that I had enough projects. The shell looks to be in reasonably good shape. I didn't know about the buyers fee, so I am glad that I didn't bid. I wonder if you could empty it, clean it, and then call it a homemade after you modify it? (to title it as a homemade?)

I would say probably so - at least in some states.

I looked at a Scamp in North Carolina wherein the owner could not get proper paperwork from the person he bought it from. He said they advised him to title it as "homemade," which he did, and they stamped a new number in the frame.

Of course one would want to check in their own state.

My guess is they overpaid about $700 - 900. Unless it's a dealer and figured out resale on any salvageable parts after a personal inspection.
