Travel Lodge Excella
Call Colin Hyde and see what the cost might run to convert the front end to a porch. All aluminum exterior sealed well with access door to interior and A/S blue porch railing. Perhaps a window or two and a retractable awning for shade. This could be a really cool adapted trailer from a wreck and would surely be a conversation piece any where you parked it. The cost to do this would be well less than a repair. I think you could get an aluminum all weather bench and cooler to mount on the deck and create an outdoor living space that would add to the value for your use. That way the repair cost would be less than trying to "restore it"! As long as you make it useful to you who cares that it isn't original. No one says you need a Propane tank cover or segment covers. Getting the same style windows as are used on the side of the trailer for each side of the door would be fairly easy. Check Rv salvage yards for two smaller windows. It can be done. You already have money expended on it, so just spend as little to make it useable as possible and then go camping! Ed
