At this price point, you can anticipate the likelihood that one or more of the major appliances will need replacement.
The two issues that stood out as I read the description and looked at the photos are:
- The coupler appears to be damaged. While it is difficult to tell from the photo, it does appear that the coupler locking lever is missing. If the locking lever is missing, the coupler cannot be depended upon to safely secure the trailer to the ball mount.
- The description indicates "flat four" connector. That implies that there are no electric brakes connected nor charge line. As originally equipped, the trailer would have had a seven pin connector similar to the contemporary Airstreams with charge line and electric brakes.
- This opens up a question of what condition the brakes and bearings may be in. To me the implication is that the running gear may not have been properly maintained for quite some time. Something that would need attention to insure that the trailer is safe to tow.
- While not an uncommon issue with as found vintage trailers, it does appear that the tires are very old and could be a potential problem for other than a very short tow.
Good luck with your investigation!
