Been thinking about the sad story of your trails west
campter's demise. Since your pictures aren't posting, it is hard to say how bad the damage is. But... what I have learned after a year with my trailer is this, almost everything can be repaired. The great thing about fiberglass is that you can fix it. Surfboards are made of fiberglass and get dinged and even broken. For the most part, you can put them back together with more fiberglass so they look and work like new.
Also, re the cabinets and floor, most of us with these old trailer end of pulling up the vinyl and carpet anyways. Once we get the floor up, we think about tearing up everything else and starting over. And, we realize, its no big deal. Cabinets built in 1971 aren't going to last forever, so at some point you might have yanked them out anyways and put new ones in. I am already thinking about that. After trying to fix mine with wood putty, I think I have more putty than wood. So, what I am trying to say is, sad as it is, you might have made these changes inside in a year or so anyways.
As long as the frame is okay, not all is lost. The lights
are an easy fix, the doors on most of these old trailers sag anyways, so a new one might be a good idea. My door fell completely off on the maiden voyage home. The seller said it would vibrate open, but we didn't expect the whole door to come off, including the hinges. 36 years (1971 trailer) calls for a few mods. Maybe you just got forced into yours a little sooner than you would have liked.
In any event, I am sorry about your incident, and hopefully you will try again, maybe even on this trailer. I can tell you they are alot of fun, and great to camp in. I can't imagine a bed more comfortable than the trails west
, because it is square and big. But probably everyone says that about their trailer.
Hope it all works out for you
