"Worth the effort" is a question only you can answer. We have been working on our Liner for five years and it is now usable. Not full time certainly, but a lot of weekends have been spent. You can see our thread here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f334...tml#post879786
I don't know what the reserve is on this auction, but the auction has ended at about $400, reserve not met.
This is a very unique trailer, just like my Liner is unique. There is more to start with than I had, but this trailer has a different floor plan and one must first determine what the floor plan will be. I am sure that it will take a full, body off restoration. Floor replacement, some frame work and completely new interior.
The only one who will make any money on the restoration is the people who the new owner pays to perform any work, the new owner will not make any money on it. But when it is complete, they will have a very unusual trailer, and if that pleases the owner, great.
Early 1950's trailers over 22 feet long, are very rare and two door trailers even more so.
Hope this helps,
