The story behind this trailer is pretty interesting. I bought it about seven years ago from a gentleman who lived about thirty miles NW of Atlanta. He was from the Chicago area and was friends with somebody who was the equipment manager for U-Haul for the Chicago area. Sometime around 1987 U-Haul decided to get out of the travel trailer rental business since they were so much trouble. Can you imagine renting travel trailers to lots of people who didn't know the first thing about them? (That's one reason the U-hauls have heavy duty frames and massive rear bumpers.)
He was looking for a camper to take his daughter to Disney World in Orlando and his friend told him that he had a lot full of trailers that had been sent to his equipment lot from all over the country for him to sell. He and the friend went to the lot and he said there were 60-70 trailers gathered there waiting to be sold
off. He looked at every one of them and said he picked the very best one of them all. He then had a custom cover made for it by the same folks that made the cover for his big speedboat.
He used this trailer for an annual trip to Florida with his daughter from 1987 until he moved to Georgia around 2007.. It was always covered and was in great shape when I saw it in 2011. He said he was selling it to help pay for his daughter's wedding as she was all grown up and they wouldn't be using it to go to Disney any more. It had Mickey Mouse curtains in it and he said he had a lot of happy memories in that trailer. I told him I'd give it a good home and I kept it until I could buy the Eriba trailer I have now. I'd been chasing the Eriba for over five years and finally got the chance to buy it when the past owner (who beat me to it in 2010) got two-foot-itis and bought a new Lance 18' camper.
The current owner bought it from me and has added a microwave
and some extra lighting
along with a bunch of other improvements. You'll have to contact him through the craigslist ad to get more details. He lives about six miles west of me and I still run into him occasionally. I'm guessing he's got his own case of two-foot-itis but I don't know.
