Trailer: 74 Amerigo
Posts: 19
We have only used it twice in the last four years, and now have a dog at the U of M for treatment and figured it is time to part with it.

It is a 14' fiberglass 1974 Amerigo Travel Trailer. It is nice and light, I think 3500lbs wet, our 92 Chevy Astro pulled it with ease. It has a gas oven, gas/electric fridge, sink, table turns into a double bed, front bench turns into a single bed, small closet, no bathroom. Tires are in great shape, and has a fullsized spare that is brand new. It has no A/C or heater. Has cabinets above the kitchen table. We have used the oven and it works good, and have used the fridge on the electric mode.

The trailer is not perfect by any means, but still does its job well and is nice to have on those rainey days. Previous owner said he had the trailer brakes replaced just before we purchased it. He also put some silicone around one window as it had leaked at one time. The access panel behind the fridge on the outside has been missing since the last owner, it should have something to cover it up. The third brake light in the back is missing the cover. It badly needs to be washed and waxed.

Don't want to sell, but our dog is more important than the camper. We are located in Brooklyn Park.

Actually, your trailer does have a heater.
Just like my Fiber Stream, you have a Duette Combination Range AND Heater, which has a built-in blower motor, and uses the oven as a heater.

Thank you for the kind words. I just can not see us without her, and her odds of a close to normal life is 90%, so there is no way I could let her go. I can get another camper, it will just have to wait for a while , but I can not get another foxy (my Rat Terrior). This is a pic of her in the Amerigo on our last trip.

most I know would accuse me of insanity, but I would do the same.

Good luck to her and your sale.

Sorry, forgot to list price. I need $2000 to sell it. I also need to add that it does have a fresh water tank after all.

Years ago (while a poor, single, working mom) someone poisoned my beloved jack russell terrier. $3500 dollars, 5 days in a coma later, she had a full recovery. Best money I didn't have I ever spent! She lasted 17 1/2 years and was THE MOST AMAZING DOG EVER! I completely understand. The best to you!

Billb,
I'm a new member to the forum and I'm very interested in buying another small fiberglas trailer.
I say another because, foolishly, I sold my 13' U-Haul some time back. 20-20 hindsight works after the fact.
Do you still have your trailer.
And.
Is it still for sale.
Please let me know.
Thanks,
Doug

Doug, yes I still have it, but really want to sell it locally only. I really do not like selling anything sight unseen. The trailer is in good shape, but far from perfect, and because of that, I want the person to look it over.
