I'm new here, been camping since I was a kid. Graduated from tent camping to tent trailer with my parents, then went back to tenting it. Have since grown tires
of sleeping on the damp ground, so initally looked at building a teardrop trailer (still might, I have an extra rolling frame from a old Bellevue Tent Trailer).
Recently browsing the local classified ads and came accross a 1986 Cadet
, emailed the seller and got a couple of pics. I then emailed him again asking more questions (since he was 35 min away) to guage the condition before looking at it. He never responded, and the ad was pulled. So I thought he had sold
it, then this past week it was up again with pics, so I went to look at it.
Overall it's in pretty good shape (pics in the link..) with a few issues. THe back window isn't original, front one is cracked and on of the side windows
has also been replaced.... and inside he just covered the walls/floor with carpet and vinyl flooring so the small cupboards don't open they get caught on the new vinyl.
But it doesn't leak, and it poured here today. My plan is to gut it and replace it with a simple floorplan, bed in the back and some storage on the sides and maybe seating at the front.
The fiberglass will need attention soon (see pics), so I might try doing the bodywork myself (just to get it campable).
That's it for now, I'll update as I go along,
