OK I don't usually do this because this used to be a hobby and I don't like to know what I spend on my hobbies. I once added up the receipts on a little 9 foot 1961 Lil Loafer built by Aristocrat and when I sold it I found that I made a total of $1.78 on it. So I never added up receipts again. I only sold it to buy another trailer a little bigger though so it was all good.
This morning after I completed the bed I decided to add up the receipts for the Shasta. I also kept track of any cash I spent not including gas. There was no outside labor other than the paint, upholstery, curtains and awning.
All together not including my gas or labor, the out of pocket cost for this 1957 Shasta 1500 was......
Drum roll please.....
God grant me the strength to restore the trailers I can,
The courage to strip the parts from the trailers I can't,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
