Iíve been checking in on the Fibreglass RV forum for the last 6 months or so to learn what I can and can now report that I have finally purchased a trailer. Itís a 1987 Cadet
It looks pretty good from the outside, but it has no interior. Thatís fine with me as it gave me a good chance to see the condition of the fibreglass and apart from what appear to be some small holes that were drilled in it all is good. It also saved me a lot of work taking it out which is probably what I would have done any way. It seems to be complete. The side and rear windows
look good. The front window is ďflatĒ and badly yellowed so Iíll probably be replacing it. The frame is in great condition and it came with new wheels and tires
. I towed just great on the 1.5 hr. back roads trip home behind my Jeep. It got a few funny looks but none from the police (Ö temporary lights
but no licence plate).
Iíve done a fair amount of body work, including a bit of fibreglass, and painting
over the years and Iím looking forward to getting into this. Iím currently finishing off an expedition trailer build (see link below). While doing that Iíll be making plans and acquiring what I need to get on with this one.
No doubt Iíll have a few questions along the way and Iím looking forward to being part of the community!
Cheers Ö Stew
