Newbie not sure what to do

Here are a few pics of my recently acquired 1967 Ambassador International. Just looking for advice on the condition, if I should sell it, the value, etc. it appears to be all original. Thanks in advance.

Well, you've asked a very open question. Do you not want to camp in it?

Making it ready to move won't be free, but may not be a huge investment. You haven't mentioned the condition of the subfloor... if the trailer has been parked uncovered for a long while, small leaks can contribute to softening or rotting of the subfloor, which is part of the overall structural integrity of the trailer.

Clearly it needs tires. The axles aren't completely sagged out but may have stiffened to the point that you'd want new ones soon, that's a common issue with our older trailers.

So tell us, what are your goals? Do you want to get some cash out of this trailer, or do you want to travel and camp in an Airstream?

Well, I think at this point I want to make it livable but not necessarily movable. Its on a piece of property I own up state so I plan to leave it there for now. The floor seems solid but I haven't really inspected it up close. It has sat like that since the 70's.

It looks like a good trailer to fix up and use. If you don't plan to use it and don't want to keep it around for a lawn ornament might as well sell it.

I gather you got it thrown in on a land deal so it doesn't owe you anything.

Depending on condition, $2000 to $3000. Would be worth more fixed up but it would cost more to fix it up than you would get for it.
