Been lurking on these threads for 6 months or so. Bought the trailer back in July. It had been sitting for a few years in Phoenix, AZ as the PO never got back to his rehab.
I've only been able to really to put about 50hrs over 6 days the last few months as I've been pretty busy and I travel for work. But I've stripped it down to the outer skin/sub floor and scrubbed the walls of the old pink insulation. Pulled most of the wires too. The trailer did not have any functioning appliances, fresh/grey/black water tanks, or kitchen/bathroom fixtures. It was a basically sound shell/frame and not much else of worth.
My tow vehicle is a 1997 Dodge 3500 I6, diesel.
Basically took it from this

-Haven't decided on the furnace or AC unit yet. Seriously considering a swamp cooler as A/C won't do me any good unless I'm plugged in and I don't want to be.
There is a small section of floor in the rear curb side that is rotten, looks like the trailer was hit and a new outer skin panel was put in over the old. But the floor got wet and damaged in the process.
I'm going to cut that out this weekend and see what lurks below. heh
That's it for now. Thanks to all that I've learned from over the last few months. And an official "Hello"!
