Not that I want to get to extensive and I could probably get away with doing minimal work with it, but I think certain things area a must. I want to start with patching the crack in the pop top dome. A 4 inch crack and very thin. A 10 in. by 10 in. area looks oddly weak and crystalline in pattern. a good layer of glassworks and and reinforcing the dome with stainless ribs for the concave problem to give it back the convex shape, a start should be good to go. Tires
, wheels, repack/replace the bearings, fresh linoleum, cabinet doors paint
or replacement. a cracked window needs replacement. Dome vinyl needs replacing, new tail lights
are a must, new cushions for the seating. The fridge
is gas/electric but it looks pretty rough.. rusty and webs.. it might work though.. A shot of clear coat! or wax/polish... The trailer frame... its pretty rusty but the integrity seems strong. I'd like to separate and give it a good grind/naval jelly and painting
. Media blast? A new trailer? haha.. The Trailer cost me nothing and came with current registration
. So any $ invested up to a few thousand isn't a big deal. I think I can keep the cost down. I was a machinist(not a welder) at a fab shop for 12 years.. I know how to work metal.
