Do you think this is the original frame?

Of course, I know we need a new bumper But the frame looks really good to me. Too good to be 45 years old. But, maybe they just painted it. What do you think?

I see the photo, and I see the frame. Looks awfully pretty. Where did it live? Was this a desert girl? Rae

This is from a 1965 Caravel that was titled in FLorida. The story is that this trailer was kept in a barn for 30+ years. Not sure what happened after that. The front of the trailer hitch was painted with aluminum paint, but there was no rust or pitting in the metal. We are bringing it home on Sunday
