I can't tell from the pictures, but unless the hinges themselves are cracked, you could probably just replace pieces that wear by purchasing the hinge bolt kit. You'll want to replace the bolt with stainless steel. Basically you end up spending $5 for a brass ball and spring, but what's a person to do when you need it? And you'll need two of those too!

I looked at one like this a year or two ago and the floor was very soft and spongy. aka shot.

I figured the only repair would be to raise it off the frame and replace the floor.

Because of that and his asking price I walked away.
