What about grey and black tanks? Where new ones installed? What is the new flooring material? Was the frame cleaned and painted? With what? How was the floor insulated? Sorry for the extra questions, but it is what I would want to know before I priced the '64.

There really is a large leeway here. Although the trailer may seem roadworthy ask yourself if you have the resources to follow through with all that is necessary for finishing the trailer. I know in my case with the same trailer that was in really pretty good condition, that I have just spent in supplies alone almost 2.5 k to do a frame on rear end replacement (new toilet, plumbing, water heater, water pump, new intellicharge with new rear end wiring, new floor replacement, replacing the collector waste valve, refiberglassing the black water tank, etc.). During the last 5 years I have put about another 5k on everything from new brakes (still need to do the axle), new refrigerator, refinishing and rebuilding cabinetry, new finish floor, mattresses, reuphostelry, etc. These are only supply costs since I have done all the labor myself.

So for the price, I would work backwards to see what it is worth to you, figure your budget for getting it on the road while doing it the right way, and then come up with your number that you can afford. If the seller bites and it is a fair number, you will be able to complete the project.

If you need any help with the project, I probably have seen it on the trailer. Feel free to reach out.

$2,500.00

I just had to chime in here.

Being another '64 owner.

I would say between 2k and 3k is the range it would be worthwhile.

Consider that you will probably never recuperate your investment when you consider time and money. You will have to enjoy it instead!

I've gotta run... I just saw a 55 whale tail Flying Cloud on Craigslist in Turlock for $5,200.00

See ya, Rich

I'd go with Rich on this one. I could be swayed with more information and pictures to add $1k to that, but $2,500 is safe.
