I've come to the conclusion that I'll never have time to go camping, so I'm putting my unrestored original '85 CT up for sale
. It has sat in my shop for the last 3 years and hasn't seen the light
of day except being brought out and washed on occasion and used once as a yard sale item carrier. I need the space in my shop, so time for it to go.
The body is in excellent shape with a few stress cracks (left fenderwell and left front bottom corner) and various minor scratches as might be expected on a 24 yo camper. The exterior could use a good buffing and polishing. I'm not sure why the decals aren't there, but I suspect that a previous owner stripped all of them and painted a black strip in it's place (which is now fading). I assume the same person also painted the aluminum back bumper black (which is also fading). All windows
operate perfectly with no leaks
that I know of, and very clean interior with cushions and curtains that are all original and untorn. The original icebox, lower cabinet, sink, and stove are all in place and in good condition. I have never tested the plumbing to see if it works, but it looks to be all there, right down to the fresh water tank. I've also never tried the heater, but all the hardware appears to be there (except the connector for the bottle at the front). The electrical
system does work somewhat; when I plug in, the inverter will come on and the interior wall plug is active. But, I cannot get the interior light
to come on unless I run a jumper from one terminal to another in the inverter box. I gave up trying to fix this due to lack of service documentation for the inverter. The trailer exterior lights
all work fine when plugged into the tow vehicle harness. Awhile back, I had installed an under-cabinet TV with a drop-down screen which can be swiveled to face either the front or rear seating area. The shield on the roof over the swamp heater is a bit tattered (it got knocked off from the previous owner driving under a low-hanging tree limb) but is secured well enough to keep out the water. I drilled several small holes in the floor at the front of the camper last year for the use of a portable A/C unit during my one outing at a friend's yard sale. The holes can be filled back in easily if not desired. The tires
are new 'trailer use only' and might have all of 30 miles on them. What few times I've had it on the road, it's pulled great and you hardly know it's back there. I've checked the bearings and they are in good condition, so I wouldn't hesitate to pull it a long distance. As for price, I'm asking $2200. Please email for questions or for more contact info.

I've tried to be as honest and forthcoming in my description as I could. If I think of anything that I forgot, I'll edit my thread. Thanks for looking!
