The exterior of this trailer is very original and complete. This trailer is built like an airplane with riveted construction for long life and durability.
Bumper, frame and a frame. The A-frame has surface rust but both side rails seem to be solid. The center rail of the A-frame (which most trailers do not even have) is rusted out on the bottom and the rear bumper is very rusty with holes and will need replaced. I hammered on all areas of the main frame (where assessable) before I bought this trailer because the frame appeared very rusty but I did not find any holes or soft areas in the frame rails. The steel angles (brackets) that originally held the sewer holding tank at the rear of the trailer is very rusty and deteriorated.
Compartment doors. Has an outside compartment door for storage under one of the beds. Door is in good shape but the hinges on the bottom need replaced. We do have a key.
Dents, scratches and damage. The worst dent on this trailer as at the very front and behind the LP tanks. Other than that, there are some minor scratches.

Has the original underbelly on 3/4 of the trailer. There are some oxidation holes and loose panels the rear quarter of the trailer. Is missing the underbelly where the holding tanks were and the holding tank steel brackets are very rusty with lots of rust holes.
