Welcome, Doug. You've come to the right place.
Lurk around; maybe you will become motivated! What kind of work does your campers need?

Best,
Fran

Needs some holes patched on outside.Someone tore out the wall covering.Frame was still in good shape but I reinforced it added a rack on the back and extended the tongue.Waiting for my rims to get sand blasted so I can paint them and put on new tires
That's on the lovebug the bigfoot just needs cleaned up its pretty nice

Easy. In this Quick Reply window just click on "Go Advanced". You'll see the usual paper clip icon for attachments and the rest should be clear.

Welcome Doug. These little trailers DO NEED to have their roofs supported, which also keeps the walls from squatting. There is usually a floor to ceiling closet near the entry door, and a support from the counter to the upper cabinets across from it. I know that you may have changed the floor plan, but do get that roof/wall supported before gravity takes over.
