SOLD J.T. #0228175002023
The exterior of this trailer is very straight and very original. This is a one owner trailer which has been pretty well-maintained. It is built like an airplane with riveted construction for long life and durability.
Frame and A-frame . Has surface rust but everything appears to be good and solid in all areas accessible for inspection.
Dents, scratches and damage. You will notice that on the door side of this trailer the aluminum skin is darker than on the rest of the trailer. This is due to having an awning on this side of the trailer which causes the aluminum to oxidize and darken. It is minor oxidation, but for that reason, this would not be the ideal trailer to polish. There is also some oxidation with holes on the bottom wraps on the drivers side of the trailer. Otherwise, this trailer has a nice, straight and dent free exterior.
Entry door front. Has the original aluminum front entry door which is in good shape, however the original Bargman brand L-66 lock is missing and a house type door knob and lock has been added. It still has the original interior vinyl covering. It is in poor condition but would work great for a pattern. Door has original seals which should be replaced.
Entry door rear. Has the original aluminum entry door which is also in good condition. It does have the original Bargman brand L-66 lock which is in working condition but have no keys. We do have lock cylinders and keys available on our website. Rear door also has original vinyl covering which is in pretty decent shape but probably should probably still be replaced. Door has old seals which should be replaced also.
Screen doors . Front door is missing screen door but rear door has original screen door which is in good condition.
Entry steps. Has both the front and rear entry steps. They do have surface rust but appear to be good and solid. They are very hard to slide in and out so they probably need a good lubrication.
Front hoist. Has the original front hoist which is in working condition.
Hitch coupler. Has the original hitch coupler which is in working condition.
Roof and vents. Has all the original aluminum vents on the roof except for the furnace vent which is a newer one. Roof has never had any tar or caulking put on it except for around the furnace vent. Roof looks to be in very good shape with no obvious damage.
Exterior lights. Has all four of the original beehive type marker lights with glass lenses and steel bezels. All the glass lenses appear to be in good condition . The steel bezels are all there but do have surface rust. Has the original tail lights which are showing wear and should be replaced. We do offer a new stainless steel tail light for this application on our website. Has the original license plate light and bracket which has minor surface rust. Temporary tow lights will need to be added to the rear of this trailer so that it can be towed home safely.
Underbelly. Has the original aluminum underbelly. There is a three square-foot area that has been cut out to access plumbing drains and there is a four square-foot area that has been opened up for adding the newer heating system ducting. Otherwise, the underbelly is in decent condition.
Windows. Has all of the original aluminum windows which appear to be in good shape. All of the opening windows do have screens. All windows have old seals which should be replaced.
The interior of this trailer is very original with the exception of the refrigerator and furnace which have been updated. It has most of the original light fixtures and the birch paneling is in pretty nice condition.
Cabinet and closet doors. Original and in nice shape. The closet right next to the toilet and bathroom door have been removed. I believe this closet is where the water heater was originally located. These doors and partition that were removed are still in the trailer loose so it could be put back to original configuration if you choose to do so.
Hardware. Has some of the original hardware on the cabinet and closet doors and some of it has been replace with newer stuff.
Countertops. Has the original lime green countertops in the kitchen with matching backsplash. Countertops are in fair condition showing wear from use.

Table. No. But there is plenty of room for a freestanding table.
Unit sleeps. Currently, there is only one bed in this trailer, but it is a two bedroom model with the bedroom in the rear and the middle bedroom. There is room for a sofa bed in the living room also so it could possibly sleep up to six persons.
Walls. Has the original birch paneling on walls and ceiling with the exception in the dining room area where different paneling has been added. The paneling is in good condition overall but there are a few stains under some of the windows.
Has the original running gear with the exception of new tires and wheels. Wheel bearings had adequate grease and the hubs barely got warm on the 900 mile trip here.

This trailer would make a nice guest house or it could be parked on a river or lake for a weekend getaway. Or if you want to downsize and simplify your life it could be a primary residence.
Air-conditioning. No. But the trailer had a central air unit outside the trailer so I’m assuming it would be relatively easy to add back.
