Traveling and Living in an Old Class A RV

We are 2 Southern Women who have been traveling in an old Class A RV for over 2 years now. We started out just trying to visit every single Florida State Park with RV camping. But as with anything else in life that requires quite a bit of money to keep doing. So about six months into our adventure we decided to become volunteer workampers in the Florida State Parks to help pay for our site fees. We make and sell handcrafted items, I have written a book (Insiders Guide to Campground Hosting in Florida Parks) and we are scheduled to be campground hosts for the next 14 months. Getting the assignments is not really the problem it is making money on the side to supplement my mom's retirement to keep us going that is. 

To that end I have created a website to record our adventures (and hopefully gain some income from that), sell my book online in several places and created several online stores to sell our handcrafted items. Now I am looking for a vintage trailer that I can renovate into a mobile retail shop to sell these items at Farmers Markets, Festivals and Craft Shows.

I am looking for an old Holiday House under 19 feet, a Yellowstone travel trailer with the two doors on the side under 19 feet or any other vintage travel trailer over 10 feet and under 19 feet located for sale somewhere here in the North Florida Area. If you know of one that can still be towed, good condition on the outside and no leaks that someone would like to get rid of please get in touch. We don't have a lot of money to spend and will be doing all the work ourselves. My brother has a truck he can tow it and will be helping with the carpentry, plumbing and electrical work as well as furnishing the workspace/storage for the trailer. We will be taking before, during and after pictures and videos and posting them on our websites.
