• Trailer tires 7.00 R15 Toyo M-53. Great condition
• New 4 corner BAL scissor jacks. Easy to stabilize and level.

• Original license plate

• Original gas light converted to LED light

• New Shurflo fresh water and black water pump
• Fire extinguisher
• On board black water holding tank with no leaks

Some things to consider:
Needs a refrigerator. Original ice box removed. We will include an ice chest with purchase
Surge brakes need repair/replacement. Trailer is light and may not need. We towed without them.
Minor water damage to front interior
Tongue weight and travel weight unknown
Roof has peeling paint and will need a fresh coat
Minor dents on exterior
All modifications done with highest quality wire, connectors and fittings.
Note: All of the LED and system upgrades were made to complimented the vintage style, while making the trailer functional for a family and dry camping since it is small enough to fit into almost any camp ground.

Looks like the front, top, and rear are fiberglass, but I've never seen one in person.

Looks like none of it is fiberglass. Looks like the 1964 trailers that my parents had. All aluminum. But the owner needs to let us know. Along with the weight (he says "it's light" but that is an opinion, not a meaningful fact) and tongue weight. Those things are important.

The sides (the only flat parts) are aluminum but the front, top and back are fiberglass. It even has a fiberglass cover on the front window. It's a good example of mixed materials construction that was done by a few manufacturers back in the day. I think it's a neat looking unit. Kencraft was considered top notch in it's day.

Hi Kai- Sorry for the late reply but we were out of cell service yesterday. Yes, the front, top, back and window cover in the front are all fiberglass. Several people have asked about the weight so my husband is going to try to get it to a public scale this weekend. Not sure he will be able to get the tongue weight. I will keep you posted!

Kai-It looks like I won't be able to provide you with an exact answer, however we pulled some information on a 1969 Kencraft that is similar in size. It looks like the weight would be approximately 2300 lbs and the tongue weight would be approximately 300. I hope that helps
