I spent a good amount of time in Texas in my military career, and this guy was not what the Texas I know represent.

Not much happening...

I logged in to eBay and the owner revised the Buy It Now price the day after the last post. And then he revised it again on Wednesday, the 17th -- now stands at $16,000. That's a significant amount of eating crow for all the crap he gave soldiermedic!

The Q&A at the bottom of the page suggests the seller would put on a mirror finish for an extra $3K. Oh my!

Not worth it

After looking at this TT on ebay I'd be surprised if it sold. The AS doesn't look like it's in that great of shape but as a Texas resident that is not the Texas I know. Ouch...can you say gaudy?

Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I guess the guy offering the $45,000 motorcycle came to his senses and realized tis guy was a nut job. I'm willing to bet this coach has floor and frame structural damage as it was not replace or repaired.

Its too bad folks like that give my beloved state a bad name.

I thought it was pretty tacky (thats Texism for really bad )

ok, I just looked at the auction.
I think the interior is kind of fun--like the Cowgirl Campers--I wouldn't do it, and it is faux Texan, but still worth a giggle.

But I agree that the seller hasn't done the work of making it a usable trailer--just the decorating.

I don't understand the acid wash, though--that's just evil--why would they do that?

And the "custom" awning--let's see, attaching a flag to the trailer and two tent poles--it's stretching it to call it custom.
