An update: in addition to the other things, a coupon book to Gatlinburg, a lighter (works) and a 2003 quarter, plus a wad of scraps of paper with phone numbers. Looks like somebody already cleaned out the good stuff!

Well just to confirm the Visa travel sticker to Baja, Mexico...I found a glass hash (I assume) pipe stashed behind the kitchen sink. When I pulled out the old heater there were all sorts of grubby old sponges, a mouse trap, old matches and such!

Our trailer isn't that old and belonged to my in-laws, so it didn't have a chance to gain many hidden surprises. However, when removing the dinette bench by the door to check for a leak I found the remains of a shattered window. I think it was broken during production and they didn't do a very good job cleaning up. The just installed a new one, and then installed the bench right over the broken mess.

Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

When removing the gaucho, I discovered an entire intact snake skin about 3 feet long.
