SPECIAL  I could go on and on about this trailer but in a nut shell here's the bad and the good:   The bad is that there has been water damage in the past with the most evident in the living room ceiling. Other areas are in the cupboard over the refrigerator, the hall closet, the front right corner over the sofa and the wall, right at the floor line, under the table. I've shown all these areas in the photos. There also has been water damage you can't see, namely the right front lower corner and the left rear corner. Both areas are where the molding is that joins the front to the back/front. All of these areas have been sealed, but none of the damage has been fixed. If you plan to buy this trailer and tour around the country, don't. It simply won't stand all the bouncing around without re-doing some of the wood. What this trailer is ideal for, what it is absolutely perfect for, is a guest house to be parked on your property. You couldn't find a better one. This leads me to mention a few of the good points. First and foremost is just how original this trailer is. From the appliances to the curtains to the cabinetry, it's just super. Ring the doorbell (original) and you expect Lucy to answer. I don't think we've ever had a trailer that is this cool on the inside. You have to see it. The floor plan is perfect for one or two people and when you step inside you step straight into 1953. Denise really wants to keep this one, but the decision has been made to let it go.   Feel free to call or e-mail with your questions. This trailer will be a real find for someone out there......
