Exclamation Hello from Utah

Just joined and hope to gain much knowledge as we are not only new to RV'in, but our first RV is an old Nomad trailer that needs alot of attention and restoration.
I don't know where to begin, so this should be a great learning experience for me. The trailer is a 1973, so to me its "vintage" but to others it might be considered trash....lol.
If anyone can steer me to help pages or restoration forums ( i can't find any) that would be great.
I attached a jpg......does this look right to anyone? I think the past owner did this to lift the trailer and I can't help think it was a major mistake. This is my first issue to deal with as well as new tires so I can get it home.

Well I guess I didn't add a photo.......I have some learning to do around here

Glad to have you here. There is a vintage rv group. If you go to the top of the page and click on the forums tab. You will see a vintage rv room.

Ask questions in any room and see what comes back to you.

Best of luck on the restore and Happy Trails!!!!
