First off, you need to know that here at VTT, we love our trailers, and give thoughtful, positive and honest comments. So here we go...
It looks as though someone put a fair amount of time into the trailer. Did you do the work? Do you have pictures of the work that was done? Does it have functioning trailer brakes? I see you’re a new member. If you’ve been hanging around for a while you will know that we are wary of painted interiors as they often cover up staining that hints at hidden rot. Also pictures will show that any repairs to the framing will have been done from the outside rather than inside the trailer. This is critical to the structural integrity of the trailer.
As far as a price point, if I were in the market for a vintage trailer and had done my homework, if I loved the color scheme and there was excellent documentation of appropriate repairs made, I may offer $5500. The yellow, lime green and purple color scheme is cheerful, but very individual and most people want to put their own stamps on these old trailers, this color scheme makes that difficult. For ten thousand, I would expect a trailer with excellent documentation of work done, done with original finishes and a quality exterior paint job. I would expect window coverings and upholstered cushions to be first rate. I would expect a floor that coordinates with the rest of the decor, a fridge in that hole, and a sink countertop that is not painted wood.
All that being said, I hope this works out well for you

Thank you, I really appreciate the honest opinion . Yes I did the work and it does have trailer brakes. I'm not restoration expert but I'm pretty handy and somewhat creative. My wife and I have an artistic flare in our taste for color. I should have taken pics of the progress but I never considered selling. I will definately lower the asking price and be honest when discribing with potential buyers.You are greatly appreciated. Thank you
