Thanks lhanna. The history of the trailer that was told to me was it was stored under a carport in the desert it's whole life, and not used much the last ten years as the original owner had a fifth wheel. He used it for hunting expeditions but would also set up a lodge tent apparently, for cooking and eating and so on. Since it was in a dry climate, under cover, and not used much, that is why it is intact, and even the cushions are like new. It did have obvious dog hair though on the carpet, not the cushions. I guess the dogs hung out on the floor.
I have to go get barkeeper's friend for the weatherstripping, and a toothbrush, according to someone else on here, will supposedly get some of the grayish grunge I see on the weatherstripping around the door entrance, off.
We are going to make a decision very soon as to whether to keep it for a year or sell it now and go back to looking. I didn't even know tongue lengths were included in trailer dimensions until this arrived. I think for weekend, or even weeks long campers this size is better. This is hard to fulltime in.
Yesterday I spent the whole day salivating over Olivers and Eggcampers pictures online. Of course Olivers are for the wealthy. Sheesh. Apparently they go for 40k now. That really seems overpriced, but anyway...that's like getting a Bambi airstream. Not in *my* budget. But they sure are pretty. I like almost any egg camper
, but definitely prefer the ones that are double walled with the fiberglass interior walls rather than carpet. There is just such a clean feeling, plus for a chemically sensitive person its less likely to have absorbed odors, perfumes, or pesticides if a person did use them. That's why I like the burro, too, it's just a burrito lol, a leetle puppy. OTOH I have seen some nice spirit deluxe casitas at campgrounds.
