Update to the ad, with pictures, and a higher price.

At $2000 I would have walked away. At $3500 I'd run. The interior is ruined and it must be gutted. The guy went window happy. No wonder he has had leaks. He has radius jalousies on one side and a series of small square jalousies on the other. If he gave me this trailer for free, I would remove all but the front windows. Glass over the holes and start from scratch. A BIG job.

The lower fridge hatch is missing too.

The lower fridge vent is there, it also has a roof vent, since the fridge is mounted high. Seller is getting greedy for something that needs a total overhaul including axle from the looks of it.

Is that a RM360 fridge though? Wonder if it works? Looks like it might have a W/C.

Different windows on either side? You only see one side at a time, someone told me that about hub caps once ;-)

It think it is an RM460 fridge. But I am probably wrong.

I meant that the fridge hatch cover is missing, but I think you knew that.

I'm looking for a fiberglass RV and love the sportsman because of the double back doors, I Don't mind the work that needs to be done but what are these worth?

I can only go by the pictures. This one appears to be a total gut job since the floor needs replacing. I sent Tom from TrilliumRV a heads up on it just in case he might want one to use the body for making a mold of the original.

Depending on the condition of the fridge and furnace etc. and what is in the closet that is not shown, I'd say $500 - $1000. Plan on a new axle and tires. The remaining woodwork should only be used as templates for new.

The buyers checklist will help you decide
Fiberglass RV - Document Center - BuyersChecklist

Looking at the floor in the last picture again, I'd only consider flat bedding it to it's new home.
