Have to part with my project trailer

Due to a fire at my home last February, I must sell my project trailer. It was setting in front of the garage door when my motorcycle caught on fire and burned down the back half of the house. Miraculously, what with the fire, water, firemen, lookie-lous, etc, the trailer sustained very little damage. The gel coat bubbled in about a nine-inch square area and two window panes are broken. I was able to tow it to another location near San Diego, CA where it sets today. I lost a lifetime's worth of carpentry and cabinetmaking tools and materials and I just don't have the heart to replace all of them and continue on with this project. I put on new tires (and the spare), and new cushions last spring. All of the appliances work, but need a little cleaning. I'm asking $2,000.00 for it as it is very much in a "useable" condition. Of course, I'm in a position to dicker, barter, trade, or what have you. I'll post pictures as soon as I figure out how. BTW, I'll even deliver it if the buyer lives in an interesting locale. Ahhh, the joys of retirement.

Please contact me by email (through this site).
I will write or call you.
I would like to see photos.
You said you might deliver.
I live near San Francisco (30 miles).
It's a great tourist town.
I also have some tools that may be of interest.

Evan, et al... Jim was Last Active 24th September 2009 - 07:31 AM.

If you click on his profile (top post, left-hand side), then view profile... you can send him an e-mail (link on the right-hand side). Don't send a PM, he probably won't see it.
