I have been replacing it a little at a time.
MY BEST SUGGESTION is "REACH OUT and TOUCH IT. GO see for yourself. DONT take the sellers word. It looks alot ,interior wise like our 77 but there are a couple of things outside that make me think its longer. The distance between the rear bumper and the storage compartment on the curb side and also an additional door (curb side) next to the main entrance door.
Send Andy or someone here the vin number and will cyper the number for you and tell ya exactly what it is.
I don't plan on buying one I don't reach out and touch myself first. I have no plans to have one shipped to me. I'll get the VIN so we can check it out.

Notice how low the trailer sits. You can also see how the skin is bulging and not flat in front of the tires. You can also see where the out rigger in front of the tire has worn a vertical hole in the banana wrap.

This trailer is self destructing because there is no flex left in the axles. I would bet that the interior has many popped rivets as well.

Also notice my wife's flowers reflected on the side of the trailer. They travel every where we go and have logged over 3,000 miles.
Those look like REALLY bad axles. Thanks for education!!
