History Howie was purchased in 2007 from an ebay ad by a very nice man in Arkansas who in turn bought it from someone in Texas. Prior to that, unknown. It was made in Arizona.
We have owned it since 2007, restored it, and have taken it many miles. Every year, we go to South Dakota with the trailer filled with donations when we take my students to Pine Ridge Reservation. We have taken it east 3 times, once to follow genealogy, once to visit Plymouth, Cooperstown, and Niagra, and once to visit Manitoulin Island in Canada and Niagra on the Canadian side. The first trip though was out west, where it blew the hub and caused us to meet an old Uhaul guy who just happened to have not one, but two of the hubs that fit.
Interior 1 Interior 2 Interior 3
New curtains, new carpet, new heater, microwave, shelf over bed, TV arm, dish rack holder, TV antenna, mirror, refrigerator.

Clean, gel coat, added blue tape as accent to match blue, PO painted 3 green trees on it, air conditioning, new tires, built propane holder, added spare tire holder, and repainted UHaul.

Added matching First-Up screen house with matching chandelier (made from trouble light) and led lights.

We renovated the entire trailer, but given the smooth walls, involved a lot of cleaning.

Other Information
One of 200 made by UHaul in 1986 and 1987. Sold off by UHaul in the early '90s. Only one of 10 that I can account for that are remaining.
