I purchased a Vintage Trailer Restoration Manual on Ebay for $4.95. It was sold by Velcro Strip.
It is nothing more than a "cover up and hide the damage" eBook and poorly done at that. There are many incorrect repairs, poor quality pictures and dangerous electrical wiring, not to mention he quotes eTrailer on the 7way color code, which is wrong. Painting over mold and dropped ceilings are the norm.
For 5 bucks, the book has taught me a lesson on how not to buy online. It could have been more. I left negative feedback after the seller failed to contact me on my complaint.
I am new to the forum. Over the past 25 years I have bought, sold, restored and scraped so many trailers and motor homes I can't keep count. My first restoration job was helping my Dad restore a Layton probably close to 35 years ago. I saw this book advertised on ebay and I thought this should be an interesting read, so I bought one. WOW is all I can say. Is this guy really in the trailer restoration business I had to ask myself. If I'm not mistaken I ran across his same info on a website not long ago.
The title should be "How NOT To Restore Your Vintage Travel Trailer""
He has Hamlet's people's money from way back, too. There wasn't much info out there in '09, and we had NO idea what we were getting into. Fortunately, saner heads ruled the day, and we did what we KNEW needed to be done. I wonder if all the folks who just gussy up trailers to turn around and make a profit have read this e-book. Sigh.
