Not quite as it should be, opinions?

I went to look at this trailer recently. Noticed the water pipe poking out the side, the seller does not know anything about why that would be like it is (it was his deceased fathers trailer). Where SHOULD the town supply be, same spot? I think not because there is no place that shows where any sort of fitting used to be in that location. Should it be underneath and perhaps it was repositioned to make for easier access, thats my thought at least.

Anybody??
Cheers

The city water fill is in the left hand photo. It is on the frame right at the rear end. The white spot in the photo.

We have a '78 minuet. Our city water intake is low on the left side, about where the left bumper and body of the trailer meet. That does not look like the standard city water intake location.

I agree with 62overlander. Although I can't see where you're referring to in your picture, mine is located on the frame right behind the bumper - street side - where that little white spec is in your picture.

If you zoom in on the photo and lighten it up a bit, you will clearly see it just below the white spot on the vertical pipe connected to the city water intake.

I did light it up and zoomed in and yes, it is there. I wonder why that pipe is poking out. Until it gets bought, there is no knowing. I doubt I will be buying it.

Thanks everyone, for your help.

It is clear to me that for some reason someone had added what looks like an out side water source.. Maybe to wash up after dumping... LOL I am surprised that it has stayed where it is and not been ripped off while backing up or small two-track road...

This is a fairly rare 28' or 30' rear bedroom Argosy with dual panaromic windows...

It almost looks like there is a quick release on the mystery pipe.

As I was driving home a few nights ago, I noticed a tractor (vintage, for sale) in a near neighbours fileld, Looking left I saw what I thought was an A/S further up in the field behind some trees. Turned out it was an MCI bus, converted into an RV. I went to chat and told the neighbour of my search. He suggest another neighbour about 8 miles away. Went to see him and sure enough he has a '70's unit (no VIN plate that I could see, looks like a 22-27ft) sat under the trees and a an even older '60's model further in. When asked for a price he came back with $14,000.00 for the pair. So, the point to the story is that I think I might be getting back to the Argosy owner today and re-visiting it.
I do have more pics and will post them when they have been resized.
