People go to a rally, get the bug, then go out and buy something and start to "gut" it. They get a little ways into it and realize it's a lot of work and decide to dump their bad start on someone else. This trailer is not safe to tow now and I emailed the guy and told him that. He probably could care less. It is a total rebuild now and he shouldn't be asking any more for it than scrap prices. I have no idea if he has the cabinets or not. I did ask. Let's see if he replies.

I've seen it happen all too often here also. Last year, somebody was trying to selling one with just the stick frame, then was nice enough to offer to sell all the plywood he had bought for it, at an additional charge!
I am not sure the "scary" part would also be the "fun" part with one like this either. It sure seems like a long long stretch to try reconstructing something like this, without the original layout to be the template.
It does seem to go with the time of year too, that there are lots of cases like this, listed for sale now that Spring has arrived. Sits all winter, owner stews all winter...lists in Spring when their "recoup" price is not waaaaaay higher than the average prices of the spring crop.

We bought this from an older couple that had removed all the original interior and had replaced it with random built shelving. We removed all that garbage to begin restoration, but have decided on doing a larger trailer. We can cross brace this one to make it safe to tow. They didn't keep any of the original interior parts, unfortunately.
If this is a project you still might be interested in, we can work with you--price is not set in stone. Just want to see it saved and put back into use.
Thanks for your interest, Jeannine and Bud

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.
