SOLD #112553002019 D.K. - S.T.
The exterior of this trailer is mostly original and in pretty decent shape. It has the original windows doors and vents but the original exterior lights are missing. It is built like an airplane with riveted construction for long life and durability. All of the exterior skin is aluminum and can be polished up to a mirror like shine.
Frame and A-frame. Has surface rust but everything appears to be good and solid in all areas accessible for inspection.
Compartment doors. No.
Dents, scratches and damage. Has some small dents, dings and scrapes on the very front of the trailer. Both sides of this trailer are pretty good. There is some damage on the rear corner radiuses. There are some screw holes above the front door where an awning or something was once attached. There is a 2” x 2” hole to the right of the front door. We have covered this with foil tape to keep water out. Overall the exterior skin is in decent shape.
Entry door front. Has the original aluminum entry door. It has some minor dents and dings and some surface oxidation but no holes. Door is complete with original Bargman lock which is in working condition but no keys. The plexiglass window in the door has a crack in the corner and door will need new seals.
Entry door rear . Has the original aluminum entry door. Door skin is in decent shape but does have some very minor flaws. The exterior door handle is missing but it still has the interior lock box which is in working condition, but is missing the interior handle. We do offer a retrofit lock on our parts e-store. Door will need new seals.

Front hoist. Has the original front hoist but it is not working and will need replaced.
Hitch coupler. Has the original hitch coupler which is in working condition.
Roof and vents. Has the original aluminum roof. It is very dirty but I do not see any damage. It looks like tar or roof coating has been applied around all the roof vents. The crank up roof vents will need new operators and seals. We do have these available in our parts e store.
Screen doors. Has screen doors made of plywood which are in fair to poor condition.
Exterior lights. All of the original exterior lights are missing from this trailer.

Most windows are complete with all hardware however some windows are missing screens and there are several cracked windows. All windows have original seals which will need to be replaced. The rear window has plexiglass which has stress cracks at the bottom.
