New Casita shell owners

Hey y'all we're from Texas. Dallas area. Life tent campers but some here know the drill. I'm 61 and little desire to sleep on the ground anymore. Although I will do a nice multiple day backpacking trip.

We are new Casita shell owners. And I don't know what I don't know! A "shell" you ask. Last week we bought a 1986 13' Casita to restore. Zero, zilch, nada, nothing inside. "What did we just do?" So said anyone who ever bought anything. My wife and I still work but we'd love to get on the road. And have some fun with our grandkids. My wife is in education and I started and run non profit. It's a faith based youth service org. Married 38 yrs. Four married kids and six grandkids.

So here we are. A fiberglass shell in the driveway as old as our first daughter. I posted a question about the frame and axel if anyone can offer some advice. I'll post some pics as I go along.

Just realize all that missing interior provided critical structural strength to the shell. Interiors are not about providing furniture, appliances, storage. Press on the side of the shell and you will see how flexible the body is.

I would get some temporary shoring inside that trailer ASAP.
