This could look like these pictures--and even better!

Hey, hope you don't mind my 2-cents' worth here:

Don't be afraid of the work--it's so worth it!

A great deal! A discount on an already good price...

Here are some photos, people, of what it could look like redone (this is the one we bought--shown two ways--there are thousands more ways to redo this and make it your own little home away from home, your Little House in the Driveway, your Little House on the Freeway..

. Your getaway from the cares of work...

Hope someone grabs this and fixes it up and enjoys the heck out of it!

BEST

Having bought many projects over the years, several real estate, none a molded trailer, here's one lesson I have learned.

Start with a blank sheet of paper and add up the positives you can see, and put a value next to each positive. If you focus on just the negatives first, you won't notice the positives.

Example:

1. molded fiberglass body: appears to be all there and in pretty good condition.

2. Nice windows, love those that open from the bottom.

3. Front window rock guard

4. Refrigerator, unknown condition with outside refrigerator vent.

5. Rear cargo door.

Everything else is a project, but is this "starter kit" worth $1500 to you? If I was close, I'd give it strong consideration.


Good luck with the sale!

Hi, MrClaus and Thrifty Bill: I agree totally; having the door present and working is a huge plus; one can find little fridges a lot easier than specific doors for these 40+ trailers!


And...if WE were closer, we'd give it a look at least. But Indiana...surely there's someone nearby who wants to take a good-sized fiberglass rig and make it their own? I can think right now of all the projects we'd do differently if we were starting anew...


BEST luck with you sale! HAVE you put it on Craigslist?
Kai

This looks like a great project for the right person

This is intriguing...plenty of others here working on an Amerigo. Nice project for the right person.

Have you advertised it on your local Craigslist? If you decide to, I'd up the price again, and add lots of details like tire condition, frame condition, etc.

The buyer can get a temporary permit to move it on the roads without actually licensing it, but not everyone knows that, so you might mention something about that, too. The more work you do in terms of informing and papers the better.

Meanwhile, this is killing Paul. We just don't have the resources to come to Indiana and pull this home and start again, but oh, how he wants to! He just got Peanut settled exactly where he wants it in our driveway; we don't really even have room for a second trailer.

But we have so many ideas for a 2nd go-round!

HOPE this finds a home soon!

Sending you all our best wishes.

Kai

Your FG-16 is nearly identical to mine with the exception that you have the rear upper storage where mine had the upper rear bunk bed.

Great project here for the handy type person, lots of potential!

Rich, what is the first picture showing that you posted? It looks like it could be flooring but it could more likely be wall paneling. Can you clarify? Thanx, Bill

We have a road trip scheduled to Evansville, IN from Danville, KY this weekend. Time to go "wandering" again. Maybe...
