Not a fortune, but....

...this is our new trailer. If you haven't seen my other threads, we paid $4K for this one. We knew there was some water damage, but didn't know how much. Turns out we'll have to replace a portion of the floor and rear wall, but it shouldn't be more than about $500 worth of material, and maybe a weekend worth of time. I'll also be replacing the water heather this week.

The fridge, freezer, stove, oven, furnace, microwave, radio/speakers, A/C, converter, propane system, brakes, and lights all work. At first we thought we had wasted our money, but now we are actually quite excited about it. We are going to clean it up, buff and shine the outside, and I actually have our neighborhood graphics place working on cutting me new vinyl graphics.

2005 Jag by KZ, 21jq. Its 20 or 21' long, bedroom slides out the rear, and it weighs about 4300lbs. Pulls like a dream behind our 2014 GMC Sierra with the 4.7L Ecoboost V6.

Nice looking trailer. I don't have the biggest fanciest rig either, but no one has more fun than I do.

This is our first trailer, and we only wanted something for weekend runs to local state parks and the Gulf coast. We're only about 30 mins from Galveston and we like spending our weekends on the water.

Congrats on the new to you trailer! It looks like it has everything you need and will serve you well. I agree that it looks huge on the inside. BUT....Having fun and making memories are the important things...not how fancy your rig is.

water dammage

Thoughts on your water damage. You can go camping and use flip flops when you shower at the camp ground bath house. Heat water on your stove for washing up or dishes. Look for a used water heater on craigs list. If you can find a wrecked unit with a good water heater or a source for a reconditioned one. Possible the one you have can be repaired. Many on this forum have done extensive repairs including my self. Our source of water leaks was from our windows. All your windows need to be taken out and resealed with butyl tape and sealed on the outside with Lexel caulk. You tube has a video on how to do this. You are lucky to have a barn to work in and a father to help you. All your damage is repairable. Take your time. Do it once and do it right. We are here to give you advice on materials,glues ect. You have a nice trailer. The estimate of about $1000.00 for material seems about right(ball park). Keep us posted.

At $325 for the electric/gas Suburban, I just went ahead and pulled the old one out, and I'm installing a brand new one this afternoon.

The water damage has been patched and the trailer is fully functional the way it is. It just bugs me that the patch job is a little uneven, and 'bouncy' in spots.
