John, Welcome! Glad you joined us. Don't have any leads other than to say, California seems to have lot's for sale off and on. Keep your eye peeled to the both the (for sale) and (referral) forums here. As well as search Craigs list daily. ..........


As far as precautions, if your looking for a "project" trailer any precautions I would have to suggest would/could be repaired during the re-hab project. Unless of course your just looking for a small decorating project. If so then the precautions would be many, but more suggestive to a certain brand versus blanket precautions for all brands. I would highly suggest taking the Buyers Check List with you to look at any used trailer

But keep in mind if your looking for a project, the check list will only help you identify issues for your project...........

Welcome John,
As Robin suggests, it is all fixable. Two things I would like to be OK when I buy are:
1. A floor with no rotten wood.
2. An axel that doesn't need replacing.
These are described in many treads, and I am a lousy typist so I won't detail here.
Good luck. I like projects too.
Don

All these trailer sell fast below $2000.00 . You have to look everyday and be quick. Many people, also looking for the same thing.

Thank you for the helpful suggestions. A trailer with many needs is not a deal breaker. Do you feel inclined to mention what brands might have significant issues that need to be considered?

All trailers have leak points so I wouldn't say there's one brand-specific to avoid. It's more about layout/size that you may want to consider. Some brands have the "furniture and cabinetry" molded into the body, hard to take that out and change.
