Hi again folks.
Since many of you are inquiring from far away, I thought I'd add what I think is WRONG with the trailer, or needs fixing.
The outside does show some stress cracks in a couple places. It looks like somewhere along the line something may have hit the trailer in a couple places, but the fiberglass is solid and I don't see any weakness in these areas. You kind of have to look for them, but they are there. The door has sprung... big surpise huh? However, it does not leak. The wheels are fine, just ugly black. I think the plate that the propane
sit on needs to be tacked down on one place. It doesn't go anywhere, and I can fix this myself if you'd like. I have no idea if the electric brakes
work, and unless you're towing it with a Geo, I doubt you'd need them.
I didn't replace the drip edge over the door when I had it painted because I thought it was ugly, but it can easily be replace with a drill and a pop rivet gun. That's about it for the outside.
On the inside.... The ensolite foam on the walls is still plyable, but is old as you'd expect. I was going to paint
is like alot of folks on here. The seams have been shodily filled with caulk. I was going to redo that too. There are a few holes where I had to drill to get pieces off the outside for paint
. With some careful caulking and paint I think they could look really good. The roof vent needs the screen replaced. The cabinet doors are cheap stained plywood. The one under the sink has the wood grain vinyl laminate, original I think. The dooron the fridge
is also covered in cheap woodgrain laminate. The fridge
is supposed to work, but I doubt it. I tried the propane
stage once and it cooled, but not good enough for Arizona. I replaced all the interior 12v lights
but one of the lenses kind of darkened already. The curtains are fine, but the back one falls off everytime I tow it. The cabinet shelves are kind of shoddy plywood too, but work. The wood that covers the storage under the front bed is plain plywood. The inside color is bright yellow, original and definitely retro. The prior owner installed a stereo in the cabinet above the sink. Definitely shoddy, but works. I think that's about it.
Okay, here's what I've done to it since I've had it;
I've redone the wiring to the plug, and exterior lights. I solder almost everything because I don't like having to make the same repair every year. I replaced all the outside running lights, license
plate bracket/light, and brake lights. The brake lights are round and recessed. I had a 2" coupler welded on, since nothing seems to be 1 7/8" anymore. I put a new deep cycle battery
on it and also a new propane tank. (it's full) I replaced the roof vent. I added a 12v water pump. (That was a bugger to do, but it works great!) I put new carpet in but left it loose so all I have to do is take it out and shake it to clean it. ( The floor is clean and in good shape.)
This trailer COULD be restored as original, but I tried to upgrade comfort items without compromising too much originality.
I can deliver to anywhere in Arizona. I'm located just north of Phoenix. Thanks again for all your interest. ~Gary
