I was given a 1963 Terry 15' travel trailer. After two days of removing the trash, I found massive water damage, no appliances, someone actually drilled holes through the floor, ran 12v wires through it and set a battery inside the camper. There is a 2 gallon black water tank, no grey water tank. The drain for the grey tank is ran through the floor and that is it. The would thing is the camper still has the split rim wheels.

I have been trying to find everything I can on the camper with no luck. With all the damage and the bad skin, I am thinking I need to start over, from the ground up. Gutting will be the easy part. Building it back will be tricky. I really could use some advice. I am wanting to put in a 30 gallon black and grey tanks. Not too sure how to mount them though.

If anyone has suggestions, I really would like to hear them.

Thank you for your time
