This trailer is amazing. If you EVER want to sell, please keep me in mind. At the age of 10, my parents bought my twin brother a real 1927 CNO Caboose. Its so cool! This would just add to the awesomeness since I am the one into trailers!
Well, the Caboose has been maneuvered to where it's going to sit while I attempt to make it purdy again. LOL Not much else has happened, other than I ordered a bunch of #0 Robertson bits, every screw that I see has a square drive, and a lot of them are practically microscopic! Hopefully the weather will warm up and I can start dismantling it soon. First I need to make a place to store the parts and pieces out of the weather, no garage or carport here, but there is an overhang on the old shed that I think could be enclosed fairly easily and hopefully give me enough room.
I was looking for something cheap but camp-able that I could take to Bonnaroo, the huge music festival that happens every June just down the road a few miles from the house here in TN. My daughter and I go every year but I won't tent camp with 100,000 hippies. lol So I clicked on this ad on Craigslist:
Hmmmm.... newer camper, dirt cheap, no idea how bad the water damage is but it must be pretty extensive with the dirt cheap price tag. Then my feeble brain started trying to fire, and I thought Hey! There may be a working refrigerator in it, and black and grey and fresh water tanks, propane tanks, water heater, furnace, a/c etc. Debating if it would be crazy to buy this and gut it for parts for the Caboose, or wait til I'm closer to actually putting it back together and scrounging parts at that time.
Here's another ad from Western KY CL that caught my eye... if I wanted anything that big I would just keep the 30' KZ, but still pretty cool. I've never heard of Boaz, rather fancy bathroom. westky.craigslist.org/rvs/3688633669.html
