I just purchased this rare gem. I have the title for it. I own a repair / restoration company in Raleigh N.C. This trailer has been sold to Maria from New York and will undergo a few upgrades....stay tuned. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

16 Today I pulled off the white seat cover that was over the couch mattress. It has holes in it, needs replaced, but at least I have it for a pattern.
19 This ugly brown refrigerator needs to go, but I haven't pulled it out yet.
33 July 7, replacing the rotted wood on the interior side of the main door.
38 New Fiber Re-inforced Plastic skin.
39 New beams and a couple "doublers"
40 Door is back on, now that it's square, it doesn't want to close right. This happens every single time I re-build a door.
42 There currently are two sets of gun holders in the closet. I'm assuming you would like them removed.
43 The old fresh water tank, no plumbing or pump or anything left, just the tank.
46 Brown refrigerator removed
47 The replacement refrigerator
50 The orginal drums were / are missing. Someone put these "idler hubs" in their place.
52 Quite a few years worth of nuts.
54 A former mouse house in the main cabinet.
55 Bed / couch cushion removed to show the structure underneath. It is in good shape.
57 Don't know why someone put a blanking panel here, to keep out sunlight I suppose.
58 This will come out hopefully tomorrow, and be replaced by a "Fan-Tastic" thermostatically controlled fan.
59 Running of the high and low voltage wires to the other side of the trailer, for the addition of 12 volt lights, and 110 volt receptacles.
60 Here's where the wires come in from under the belly.
61 New circuit will have it's own 15 amp breaker, there in the blue box.
62 New receptacle, down low near door. This would be a good place for a space heater when needed.
63 Another receptacle on right side of trailer near couch / bed.
65 The top half of this receptacle is for the refrigerator which will be on the shelf directly above it. There's an extra plug here if needed.
67 July 18, scuffing the roof for new roof coating.
68 Removed old roof vent
69 New "Fan-Tastic" 5000RBT will suck the dirt off the carpet.
71 New Propane rack and new bottles
74 New sway bar, ball bolted all the way through the tongue, rather than using the lag screws that came with it.
77 Cracked right rear lense.
78 New lense.
79 This light does not have a on / off switch, you have to screw the bulb in & out. It's out of here!
80 New light with switch.
82 Right side of trailer in closet, 12 volt junction box.
83 New ceiling light, stategically placed to also illuminate closet when opened.
84 New 12 volt light right side of trailer near couch / bed.
85 New light near entry door.
88 New 12 volt light next to the 110 volt light above dining table.
89 Junction of wires, L/H side of trailer. Not quite all of them here yet.
90 New 12 volt light next to 110 volt light above sink.
99 Cutting some left over linoleum for the floor in the storage compartment in the rear of the trailer.
100 Here it is installed, the compartment runs under the entire bed.
101 Brand new 3500 pound Dexter axle with electric brakes. Notice it's a straight axle and not a "drop down axle" This raised the trailer about 2.5 inches which is a good thing. It sat very low before.
103 New adjustable hitch with sway bar ball & tab welded on today.
104 New tongue jack with removable wheel.
106 Maxx-Air Roof Vent Cover installed today, August 13.
107 Trailer complete except for cleaning, headed out on it's test drive, stuck the sign on for some free publicity as I was cruising the highways of Raleigh.
108 Test drive went well, everything works great and the trailer pulls great. Have owner, will travel.

Would like to meet with you and look at your trailers. Are you the guy up Leesville Road? - Stowy, Wed, 25 May 2011 1:24PM
Please keep me in mind for the future. I have a 32 Ford street rod and intend to purchase a vintage trailer to pull to rallies and across the USA after my divorce. Where are you located? I am in Pittsboro. Would like to see your trailer. Thanks. Janet - Janet Jones-Parker, Sun, 18 Apr 2010 12:26PM
