The exterior of this trailer is very original and intact and in pretty decent condition. It is built like an airplane with riveted construction for long life and durability. It has aircraft grade aluminum that 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. The very front of the A-frame is bent a little where the coupler bolts on.
Dents scratches and damage. There are some small dents, dings and flaws on this trailer but nothing major. (see photos) Overall the trailer has a nice exterior skin.
Entry door front. Has the original aluminum entry door which is in fair to poor shape. It is missing the original Bargman L-66 lock but a deadbolt lock has been added. There are several dents and tears on the bottom half of the door and a doggie door has been added. Door will need new seals. No keys. We do offer a new entry doors on our parts e-store.
Entry door rear. Has the original aluminum entry door which is in decent shape. It still has a vintage Barman L-66 lock but it is missing the lock cylinder. Otherwise, it seems to function fine. A deadbolt has been added. There are some small dents on the skin of the door but nothing major. Door will need new seals. No keys.
Screen doors. Front door is missing the screen door but the hinges are still there for it. Rear door has the original aluminum screen which is in good condition. It looks like a small section of the aluminum was modified for installing the deadbolt lock.
Steps. Step for front door is missing, however brackets are still there. Rear door step is there, it has surface rust and is bent up but can probably be saved with a little work.
Front hoist. Has the original front hoist which is in working condition. It could stand to be lubricated.
Hitch coupler. Has the original hitch coupler which is bent up a little and has surface rust. The coupler still functions, you just have to make sure that you get the mechanism locked securely before towing.
Roof and Vents. Has the original aluminum cambered roof. A cambered roof is much better than a flat roof because it is stronger and sheds water better and can hold up to heavier snow loads in winter climates. The roof appears to be in good condition with only minor dents and dings. No caulking, tar or goop has ever been added to the roof except there is a little bit of sealer around the furnace vent.
Exterior lights. All four of the original marker lights are missing and newer marker lights have been added. Has the original recessed tail lights which are in fair condition. We do offer new stainless steel tail lights to replace these. Has the original license plate light and bracket. Temporary LED tow lights have been added at the rear of the trailer so that it can be towed home safely.
Underbelly. Has the original aluminum underbelly. There are some small holes behind the axles and some patches but overall it is in pretty decent condition.
Windows. Has all of the original windows except the rear one. The front curved plexiglass windows have some scratches and scuffing from age, but I do not see any actual cracks. The original seal is missing from the driver side front curved window but this whole seal should be replaced anyway. Has all of the original aluminum windows which open. These windows are complete with hardware and screens but two window levers are missing and some of the screens are torn. There are three windows that do have cracked glass. All windows have original seals which should be replaced.
The interior of this trailer is very intact and mostly original, however most of the original appliances have been replaced. This was originally a two bedroom model with a bedroom in the very front and a bedroom in the very back. The front bedroom wall was removed to make the living area larger. This could be left as is or changed back to a two bedroom model.
