Hello, all -
We just recently put a deposit on a 1981 Excella II 31' with a rear bedroom.
The good news is that the body is in very straight shape. I guess another bit of good news is that it's a rear bedroom. The air conditioning works, all the tanks are there including LP and water, and the fridge seems to work (wasn't there long enough to verify). The tires are newish, all the windows are in place and work.
The bad news: Mice made a home of the area beneath the front side of the trailer, under the front cabinets, under the bed. It doesn't appear that they worked their way up the walls. The trailer was parked for 4-5 years. There is smell; we've read all about Hantavirus and expect that we need to have it cleaned prior to anything else. We will be replacing the beds of course. I expect we will be having to replace wood panels under the front couch / bed, and hope to not have to drop the front belly pan.
Is there anyone who could assist us / coach us as we look at this a little more? Are there any good airstream owners who could lend a hand in looking at this one, commercial or otherwise? Any help would be very appreciated!
