I was lucky enough to trade my 1975 Prowler for a 1999 Burro
so I do not need the Trails West
that I bought about 3 weeks ago.
If you go to the album and click on page 7 and then click on trails west
you will see my trailer. The last 7 pics are of the one that I bought.
I paid $2000.00 for it and drove 800 miles round trip to pick it up. The window on the right side was in bad shape and it has been rebuilt. The refrigerator
now works very well. I think the heater works as the pilot lite stays lit. It was about 110 degrees the day I was working on it so I could not get the main burner to lite.
I have rebuilt the pop top. The wooden frame on the bottom was rotted and has been replaced. The top frame work was in good shape other than being loose from age. I removed it and glued ansd screwed the frame work together and replaced the plywood panel. There was not a screen or zipper intact in the whole canvass. The screens have been replaced and the entire canvass has been resewn.
The prior owner told me that the axel and wheels are new as well as the tires
. They all look in good shape to me. The seat cushions have been redone in vinyl and are in excellent shape. The curtains are OK but need new rods. I have not checked the hand pump at the sink so I do not know if it works.
There is a fairly new propane
bottle but no holder for it on the tongue.
There is silicone around the windows
that the buyer can clean off as I am tired of scraping.
It needs a good cleaning and it will be ready to go. The body is in good shape and should take a good shine.
I think I have described it fairly and told you all of the negs.
I towed it with a 4 cyl Toyota PU and did not know that it was there.
I have about $2500.00 invested in it and would like to get my cost back. The hard and expensive work has been done. With a little elbow grease you will have a good looking square egg.
