This is a Trailswest Campster that is 100% project. It's a mess but is FREE. The poptop appears missing as do all the windows and door. The cabinets have been torn down and are piled inside the trailer. Someone in need of a project might really enjoy this one. . . but will need to make a sizeable financial commitment to the effort even though the trailer is initially free. Check it out at:

Good luck!!

Thumbs up

Lisa,

How far are you from the project trailer? I am in wyoming, and have been looking for an older fiberglass trailer to restore. Any possibility I could get you to pick it up and I could get it from you this weekend? (I know, really big favor, but I can't imagine that free will stay available for very long...

Pam

Dear Pam,

I wish I could help you out with picking up this Campster but there are several variables that prevent me from doing so even though I live a mere 2 hours from it. The first, most important reason is that the trailer does not appear towable in it's current condition: With all of the cabinetry heaped in the middle of the trailer I doubt very seriously that the wiring is intact and the tires do not appear in good shape either. I'm new to this trailer hobby and am not comfortable with the risk. If you examine the trailer carefully, IMHO, you might conclude that this trailer is best picked up on the back of a flatbed. There is no telling what condition the frame is in either. Furthermore, I live in a condo and already have one restoration Campster in the garage. I do not have a place to store an additional trailer.

Have you communicated with the seller yet? Perhaps you can make some kind of arrangement. He only placed the ad on Craigslist yesterday evening. But in all honesty, I do not know how you are going to be able to get the Campster all the way back to Wyoming without spending a sizeable amount of time and money in California just getting it road-ready.

Sorry I could not help you out beyond posting the ad. Best of luck to you in your endeavor!
Lisa

I have left email for the seller, but he left no phone no. Is there anyone else in the area that might help out a egg-less owner wanna-be? The biggest question is most likely the tires, which is fixable. (That and stuff falling out of the trailer at rapid take offs...)

Thanks!

Pam
