There's some serious damage to this trailer. Owner says "easy to fix" and has zero positive feedback. Not likely!

Run for the hills!

This is actually my trailer that is for sale. And just to inform you Kevin242 I never stated in the add that this is an "easy fix" as you say. I bought this trailer to repair, and ended up rebuilding a 2009 25' instead that was much worse. I had no previous experience, but it turned out great. I don't need two trailers so I am selling this one. Next time please read the description a little better before you state the wrong facts. Again, I never said it was an "easy fix", but it definately can be fixed and would save someone lots of money. I actually have much more in this than what I am trying to get out of it.

So wakesetter1, how would you go about fixing that trailer? I have a good understanding of the interior work that would need to be done but what about the sheet metal? Order new panels from AS? Fabricate new ones from scratch? Thanks-

JDavid

JDavid, this will be a challenge for sure. The trailer that I fixed on my own I ordered the panels from AS, as well as another company that sells parts. There website is www.outofdoorsmart.com. All the parts are online and available to purchase. I decided to keep the bigger trailer for my family and sell this small one. I grew up in a family that always camped in airstreams and saw my grandfather repair many panels on them. It is not easy work, but can be done. I am no expert on this, but I am pretty mechanical and started by drilling out the rivets. On the one I fixed I made sure all the structure was straight and then put the new panel back on and installed the new rivets. I had to do many adjustments before I put all the rivets in. The interior I thought went back together very easily. Again I am being very honest this is a big project to take on. I was not willing to pay what a none wrecked trailer cost so this is why I purchased and fixed a wrecked trailer. I now have a 2009 that is repaired and I have less than half of what it would have cost me if I hadn't bought one wrecked. If the Bambi doesn't sell I will probably make it a winter project. Hope this helped!!
