1973 Amerigo F16

Amerigo trailer.

It has been gutted for a rebuild and partially reconstructed.

Includes all parts I purchased for the redo including a Futon mattress not pictured .

1500 or best offer

Located in Valparaiso Indiana near Chicago .

It's been sitting for the last 5 years so the tires likely need attention one if flat .

Mike Watters: whoever gets it will need to make templates for the inner paneling, which seems to be entirely gone. They can get their choice of products and finishes for them...including hardboard and wallpaper. We chose a 1/4" ply sanded on one side, and pickled it (used white stain and wiped back).

Looks like all the cupboards are still in? Didn't touch the ceiling?

Back bed looks odd...going for full-time dedicated bed with the futon mattress, I take it? We went with two "smaller than" twins, one on the side and one in the back end, and made dedicated seats next to the back bed, by kitchen and storage closet. JUST enough room for all we needed. We use a portable, folding table in Peanut, and hang it in the front "putin" niche.

Is that a toilet I see in there? Interesting.

If only we were 30 years younger!

As it is, our 1973 Amerigo FG-16 named Peanut more than fulfilled our desire to rebuild a trailer, a fiberglass trailer, and an Amerigo from gutted to finished.

BEST on your sale!

Back bed: It was planned to be a sliding platform, so it could slide down flat to be a bed, or up to be a couch.

Cupboards are out. I was going to recreate and saved the doors.

Ceiling was left alone. It was in good shape since it was fiberglass.

Walls: The paneling was totally shot. That's why it came out. I thought FRP would be a good replacement, but never got around to it.

That is indeed a toilet in the front closet. It's not mounted yet so there's a couple options for where exactly to put it. It's a cassette toilet pulled from a popup, so it would need access to the cassette for emptying.

Thanks, Mike! Good further information.

We really like our '73 Amerigo...different model, we never had the back hatch by the floor. Just as well since we use the back underbed as a bed area for our dog. The hatch would be hard to get at under there.

Never seen another Amerigo in person...maybe one day!

BEST

So although it needs tires is it towable? I mean, is the frame it sits on safe? Condition of Propane lines, plumbing, electric, brakes? ---any pictures of the hitch?

I towed it here from Ohio 6 years ago and haven't towed it since. It was totally gutted, so there are no propane or water lines. I redid the tow wiring. No brakes.

It will include everything I picked up to add to it including: futon mattress, bench cushions for dinette, a window AC unit, cassette toilet, misc items (door latch, water tank, valves and such for the water, pump etc)
