He said is ridged foam board from lowes
All rotten wood was replaced, reinforced. trailer wiring and outside lighting is all done and works. The outside is in pretty good condition, a few dents, nothing major, needs paint. the skin when i bought it had alot of dents around the bottom so I replaced the bottom 2 1/2 feet of skin, thats the gray in the pictures, looks good and is riveted and sealed every 1 1/2" all the way around. Springs, axles, tires are good, not new by any means. This trailer rolls very well, almost don't even know its behind you. Its not finished, but would make someone who has a little know how a very good trailer.
Why replace lower half of tin and not to seam ? Sounds ok I would be real temped at $500 For a 62 compact I must have a thing for 1962
Replacing just the bottom x-number of inches makes a little bit of sense, especially if you look at it through someone's eyes who does not know all the ins and outs of these things. The 6-inch brakes make it fairly easy to determine a straight line to repair to.
$1250 isn't all that bad a starting point to negotiate from especially knowing the points you listed as done, but I would want a little wiggle room for negotiatating...
I don't care for the pine either...but sure would love a little one of these candied hams...
