The camper is in OK and we hope to go get it in the next few weeks then I will post a lot more pictures.
Torsion axles have rubber rods in them, that must be exercised to stay alive. Long term parking leads to them becoming solidified, making them useless.
The following will help you check them out.

The first major project should be making sure the trailer is water proof.
If the exterior gaskets are original, they will all need to be replaced, especially the sewer vent pipe cover gaskets, that only last 2 to 3 years.
