My "new" trail/project

I prefer the older units as they are easier to work on & bring back to life. Mine is spotless inside as the wife of the previous owner never sleep in it, she was claustrophobic. It sat on a campsite & didn't move for the last 12 years. Was pulled twice when new from Ontario to Texas in it's first two years. Delamination on both front & back as well as both sides is waht i will be repairing during the winter. New roof as well as a new gell coat. She'll look new in the spring. The front right side peeled off in the wind during the 3 hour bringing it home. I took out the worst of the rotted wood & applied a temporary patch. Still some camping weather left.

Keep us updated with before/after progress pics throughout your winter project, rebuild projects are always interesting to follow...., especially when someone else is doing all the hard work

Problem was it was bought when just two years old, pulled off the road & parked in a park. The people that bought it & have owned it for the past 12 years didn't have a clue how to look after it. Typical, use it don't maintain it. So when it shows signs of delamination sell it. Got it really cheap when the front piece peeled back 2 miles from the guys house.

Wow looks good, but looks like and sounds like lots of work. Hope it comes out just as you want it too.
