I *love* setting up an outdoor kitchen. And if I could store the items in the trailer and not have to set up a tent, I think this would be a very pleasant experience.

Here's an album showing outdoor kitchen and last camping event: Fiberglass RV - Ellpea in CA's Album: Outdoor Kitchen

Am kind of sad that the photos uploaded so skewed.

I guess the individual pics are not skewed though.

I looked at your album. In future you may want to consider resizing your pictures before you post, as they are too big to be displayed on a computer screen. Here is a link to a website I have used: Resize Images online

Thanks Jon. I thought the system re-sized them... but obviously not enough!

It is a 1974 or later, unless the PO added the font window protector that was not available to my knowledge until the early 70's, it also has a Bargman L400 lock which did not appear until about 74 or 75. Finally it is really hard to tell, I tried enhancing the image, but I would say looking at a section of the tongue that the frame appears to be a box section rather than C channel, the early frames were C channel

Wow, this is good to know! Are the box section frames more durable than the C channel? Would I have the same concerns about frame *fatigue*?

Yes the frames are equally as problematic. The box section although 4 sided uses thinner metal.

Question about awning "rail"

So there is a little track or rail above the door curbside. I imagine that's related to the awning. Is the awning something that actually attaches to the side of the trailer (like on the big stick-builts), or does something just clip onto the rail and stretch out?

it is called a rope and pole awning. The awning material has a 1/4" cord sewn into one hem, the cord slides into the awning rail you are seeing, The outer edges of the awning are supported with tent type poles and guide ropes.

That's awesome. Just the kind of awning I'd like to have, but had not seen this awning rail system before!

My advice is if you have any experiance with trailers at all, look it over and make sure it is solid underneath, can it roll down the road safely? If it does have any mechanical issues is it something that can be repaired by you or you would be willing to pay someone else to repair? If so the next thing you need to think about is would you feel comfortable with the layout and the size? If you can be and like the way it looks then is $5000 a price you can live with? If it is then buy it. If it is to much or feels to steep then offer less but be prepared to not get it if someone else comes along. I would never sell mine now that I have one, took my almost 10 years to find one I could afford, had I had more money at I probably would have spent whatever I could to get my own fiberglass camper. I love them and have never regretted spending the money for it and have put lots of money into it since on improvements and just keeping it up and have never regretted that either. It is all just a matter of what you want.
