I didn't know this thread existed or I would have made my first post here!
We bought the above capsule on impulse, about 10 days ago? It was parked for 7 mo. at my dear, patient next-door nabe's property. Short story short, it's ours now. But still parked at neighbor's. We need a tow vehicle.
We have a mechanic picking the trailer up on Friday. We've taken lots of photos (http://www.flickr.com/photos/organiz...57635060388488
) and have removed the old insulation from under the bunks, cleaned, and plan on removing the bunks and gaucho again when it stops raining. The goal is to pull the carpet and use that as a template for a sheet of Marmoleum to cover the entire floor.
Lots of original textiles that we no longer want are tossed, along with lots of 70s cooking gear. But I was heartened to see everything carefully washed or dry-cleaned, covered and hung carefully for the next outing. We met the original owner and he filled us in on how many miles he put on the rig and so forth. Nice man, very fastidious w his home and toys.
Spouse purchasing a new battery today and with mechanic's help we will test the LP system and water and the appliances on Friday. Considering the overall shape, we are cautiously optimistic. We only found one tiny spot of floor rot on the back edge.
We need a 1970 user's manual, good sources for fabrics and foam including latex. I don't want to paint the interior vinyl, it's in good shape. Some discolor around the front upper endcap--maybe they were smokers?
I have lots of questions but have already found invaluable answers in these threads. SO happy to have found this place!
