Hi Dave, thanks for posting here! I really appreciate the comments from people who have the same trailer and are dealing with some of the same repairs. I will certainly send some questions your way in a private message, and I really look forward to seeing your pictures.

Thanks,
Nick

Nick;

If you find yourself over your head and wish to sell your trailer I would be most interested in purchasing it. I've been looking for a small trailer to take fishing with me. Drop me a reply at rholtz.telus.net. Thanks too much.
Roland

Welcome to our world.
Thanks Mary! I'm finishing up some renovations in my house right now, so the trailer is waiting patiently for some love and attention. When I start the trailer project, I'll definitely be posting questions and doing some searching in the Problem Solving section.

Thanks!

Sent one this morning. If you didn't get it, I can send again. Check your spam folder? I'm not serious about selling at this point, so it's probably not worth a special trip to Victoria for you. But if you're over here for another reason, you can certainly drop by and check it out. Anyhow, we can talk about it by email.

Hey Nick! Just wanted to give you a little moral booster! Sometimes a rebuild can seem overwhelming (did I spell that right?) and when you ask for advice a lot of people don't get it ! Don't worry !! They will...I had people chassing me down the road wanting to buy right there and then and nothing felt better than to say NOT FOR SALE!!!!!! These little trailers are as rare as they come... Can't wait to see some picks of you progress Jacques

The furniture is essential for strength on these trailers, even more so than conventional eggs. While only a few were built in Canada, they are common in Europe,built in Poland under a different name, so some parts (like the front window) can be sourced new from over there.
I thought that the original fabric would be hard to install and would be fragile. You might try some OZITE...

Hi Jacques! Another Cadet owner; awesome! Thanks for the moral boost. I'll definitely need it. I hope to be able to start work on the Cadet before too much longer. Just trying to finish off a couple of other projects first (house reno's, and fixing up a turbo diesel landcruiser I bought to tow my Cadet with).

Hi Floyd, thanks a lot for that link to Ozite. That stuff looks perfect actually! I wonder how bad the off gassing would be with that stuff? Just like any other synthetic product I suppose. It sure looks like it would be easy to mold to the curves of the shell.

Any glue you might use would smell more than the Ozite "fabric", I can't smell anything with my nose pressed up against a new roll. Very Scientific!
