picked up full of junk, gutted for $25. assembling appliances to rebuild interior.
it was being gutted to be turned into a rolling tattoo parlor, before it was abandoned without a top vent, the walls around the door sagging out 6" and the roof collapsed. door won't fit new wall profile.
started full of junk, but some was valuable worth more than what I paid for the trailer, even after a dump run. Picked up fridge, stove, furnace, table and cushions from a tent trailer that was being turned into a quad hauler. still need sink paneling, and flooring. aug 2011
Changed the floor plan to be rear fixed double bed with under bed storage, and front two person dinette that folds down into a third berth. August 2013
Paint on, new marker lights June 2013.
New decal package on, polished belly band, and put on new screw cover strip. looks totally new.
Moved tm 15 floorplan furnace hole on left side to b 15 location on right side May 2013. Replaced right side studs May 2013.
Well finished gathering materials for the rebuild, I have settled on a basic booth design for the back, it originally had the bathroom in the left rear corner, but I am deleting that.
There will be a booth that collapses into a bed at the back and a bench at the front that flips into a bunk bed. I tossed around the idea of a two person booth at the front and a fixed bed with storage beneath at the back, but I thought it has the most appeal with this classic floor plan.
I will re decal it with the help of a friend who is into graphic arts and has printing connections. He selected a gold metalic that although not origional gives a nod to the disco era trailer, while giving it a nice modern flair, resto-mod. The interior will be repaneled with current style RV paneling, so it will be brighter. I dug it out last weekend and will begin the work this week. 2013-05-20tk
