Mine had missing glass, so the floor was very rotted. My cabinets were missing, so you have a great head-start with the cabinets intact. The only original thing in my trailer now is the shower pan:-)

You're getting one of the very best years and models, but I am prejudiced.

One more suggestion for your rescue is to do something more than the lock to secure that suicide door. They do a lot of skin damage if they come open on the road.

Cheers,
Steve

I'd add to that a set of towing lights. You can get them cheap at an auto parts store. You never know what condition the originals will be in. Great trailer and congrats!
