Hi Zanad,
Looks like the wood is in good shape. I can't
see any delam. If the floor is solid (no soft spots) then you are way ahead in that department. Looks like you found a diamond on the edge of the fairway (not quite the rough )! Good luck with the resto.

Welcome aboard.
Looks like you've found a good rig to roll back on top. I expect things will come together quite well. Good pics

polishing (boing ......... boing)

he he he, Started piloshing with 2 cans of 5 oz mothers and i got a good section done.this stuff is great beacause their looks like a clear coat on the trailer but with this stuff i cant tell if thier's one on or not. I planned this project from the start: to polish it completly and go to ...and ask for a... ah nevermind im way to exited to tell what plans i got for this trailer. I even made a price guide to see what it would cost me. well heres the pics. notice that i dont have anything polished above 6 feet because i dont have scaffolding. I really did think I payed a bit much for this thing but heck ITS COOL.

I'm thinking you may have a 66' or 67'. Are the windows curved?

Looks like a mighty fine trailer!!

What are you using to polish with? You mentioned mothers, what is that? Are you using a buffing wheel to polish? Enquiring minds need to know!

The curved Corning windows were only used on 1966 - 1968 models. If you post the serial number, we can tell you the correct model year.
The plastic door handle is not original equipment. If you need just a lever type handle, it would be the interior handle for a Bargman L-200 lock. A locksmith might be able to order one for you.

Hmmm, check out the decoder at the top of this page - looks like you might have a '66.
