I would tell him that you will be glad to tow it off of his property, if he can provide clean title to the trailer.

Looks like a lot of work even before you can use it so 250 to 500. You will have a lot of cleaning to do and if you are not into welding you might research the welders in your area cuz she is resting in moisture. Post some pictures of the interior if you buy her.

Looks like a decent survivor. If the floor is solid, there is some value there.

yeah bad news the floor is soft down thru the center and by the step.... i could see the frame by thru the floor by the heater and i took a piece up in front of the stove and the frame that i could see there isnt two rusty just a little surface rust and you can still see soem of the black paint on it...
the frame looks to be quite heavy

the floor is solid everywhere the frame is

So long as the title's present and accounted for I think she'd scrub up nice, given all her guts are there. It'd be a pricey scrub tho. If it were me I'd offer $400 and maybe go as high as $1100 if he throws in that vintage Ice-O-Matic

The window seals are easy to install and they are available from Vintage Trailer Supply in black or gray. The glass is single strength.

Your biggest items are the soft floor and the fact that it does not have any holding tanks.
