Here's the find. This 35' trailer has been parked in one place for over 40 years. It's missing one of the rear side doors, one window and someone replaced the two, side-front windows with house sliders. No leaks after a recent rain. Someone was living in the trailer until last year. The interior has original stove but not refrigerator. Cabinetry is in good shape, all knobs and pulls are there. Lighting fixtures are a variety, only a few original. Bathroom tub is slightly chipped and scratched. The floor is solid, but recovered. Original birch paneling looks good, no stains. There is an attached 8' x 11' shed and awning that must be removed. Wheels and tires must be replaced to haul. Clear title. Should I get it or forget it?
I would say it depends on what you want it for. I am about to sell my house and build another. Going to need a place to live and I would jump on it with both feet. Do any repairs and live in it.
I wouldn't want to tow it around as I am almost certain it is a Mobile Home, not a camper. I doubt there is a huge demand but it has to be worth something if you are thinking of flipping it. Could make someone a good short term rental.

Is it being sold, and if so how much $? It does look to be in very good condition. I agree with Kudzu it probably is what was called a park model, not really meant for travel. It would make a great camp if you have a nice private piece of property. It seem worthy of being saved. Thanks for the pics.

I appreciate the input. Please keep it coming. The lure of the beautiful birch, curved, corner cabinet door with a touch latch is like a magnet drawing me closer. Closer to a ton of work. I'm going to clear out all of the past person's possessions to get a better feel for the scope of the job. Oh, here's a photo of the cabinet.

Unfortunately, the only identification on the outside is a broken-in-half Viking badge. Anybody know of an image of a complete badge or know of a source for a badge? A while ago if I recall correctly, Ryan's had a Viking badge.
