Hi everyone, I am in Rhode Island. I love the outdoors and I have never restored a trailer before. Right now, between getting my garden going and housework (very little of that LOL) I have been restoring vintage sewing machines. Yes, that is quite a jump, but I have been following blogs and websites on vintage trailers and one day I saw a fixer-uper on Craig's list and had to have her.
Well, I got her home and stuck her in a back garden. I figure she will be in the shade and I can work on her easily without cluttering up my little driveway. Soon the fun will begin. There is not really that much work to do aside from adding insulation and a new ceiling. I want to add some 12v ceiling lights and new wall fixtures. The linoleum needs replacing and the previous owner installed a new potty, but I have grandkids. I love them, but I am not taking my new toy anywhere this year so, I am just going to have a port-o-potty for them when they stay for the weekend. Plus..the former owner CUT the water lines..what was he thinking??? I think he installed the grey water and black water tanks on his new project camper. The cushions need to be re-upholstered and I am on it already. Along with new curtains. I am so glad that I can sew.
So with a little electrical, my DH getting to the lights and ceiling, I should be ok. I am not forgetting the plumbing,,,,I am just not ready to address that particular problem yet. I also have to figure out how to clean up the heater and get that going. My DH thinks the sink is not deep enough. Well..he is in charge of that project. Good news. The refrigerator actually works LOL.
Now the fun part. The trailer came with not title, paperwork, etc. I know, I know. But for $250..would you have passed it up???? If someone can figure out how I can get it registered please let me know..
