Thanks Everyone...You guys are great.

After I dig a little deeper into the bowels of the beast your $350 offer to "take it off my hands" may be more attractive. At this time, however, the ether has not worn off, and I still feel she may be worth the restoration effort. lol

Thanks, Bob, for the historical information. I agree that they all seem to have been built prior to '75. I'm sure the '80 on my bill of sale was just a guess.

I'll send updated photos as the restoration progresses.

Look on the bright side that big ole snake mitigated the mouse damage.

If in the end you decide it isn't a good deal and choose to put it up for sale for $400.. making a $50 profit, stand back and see how many offers you get from members of FiberglassRV!

The flooring needs to be replaced before any other interior work can begin. I found a nice stove and hood in Fayetteville, NC, if I can find someone heading North that I can pay to deliver it to Virginia. Any takers?
Very nice trailer, you will have fun with it.

Hi Liason (Tom!) I sent a message to you from your craigslist (VA) post on this same trailer. Please let me know what still needs to be done to make this trailer road-worthy - and if you actually got the stove for it? Thanks!

new Axle

What are you thinking for a new axle?
I have been looking at independent suspension vs torsion vs straight
I kinda ruled out spring because I do not like the ride on past trailers.

This forum has about the most info & pics that you will find on amerigos. Search all of the posts in the amerigo section & you'll learn a lot. Start with the newest posts & work your way down to the oldest ones. You'll probably see a few of the campers that went from one owner to another. Fiberglass RV - Amerigo Trailers

Amerigo - Bob Miller

Bob Miller, thanks for the background on what happened to Amerigo. I have a '71 Amerigo truck camper with the Snap 'n Nap. We bought new, made several trips across country, are now on our 3rd truck. Had plenty of room for our family of 5, now enjoying it with grandkids. Never understood why Amerigo shut down, thought it was a good engineering design, especially the pop-out bed. - Susan
