My wife has been on me to find a camper that we can fix up together. We know absolutely nothing about camping, but we're both pretty handy and with two small kids it seems like a hobby the whole family can enjoy. That being said, it's hard to find much time to work on major projects so I hope I have found something that we can work on realistically. The chassis has some rust as you can see, but I think that's mostly from the salt air in and around Myrtle Beach. The frame seems to be structurally sound. I think if I take some time w/ a wire brush and a hand grinder and a few cans of rustoleum I can take care of the rust. The floors are solid and the roof has no visible leaks. All the appliances and AC unit seems to be working fine, so I'm thinking the bulk of the work will be cosmetic which my wife will love. The trailer pulls great behind my truck and we're already seeing this as a fun project. I hope this small investment will give us the opportunity to bond over the vacations and holidays away from school and work. I grew up working closely on a farm with my dad and hope to have a similar type of relationship with my children as they grow up. I figure, what better way to do that than by camping... Anyway here's some additional pictures of our trailer. It's a 1988 24' Citation. If anyone has any insight/suggestions for this model I'd be appreciative to hear what you know about it. I can already tell this site is going to be a great resource for us moving forward.
