Hello TamiD, my girl isn't as old as your trailer, but I am sure you will find good answers to your questions in the vintage forum area! That is where I got most my questions answered when I started out!

thanks everyone! I already have a leaky water pump question lol. I just took a couple pictures and will post them soon. It is in beautiful condition, but very old and living in it full time is going to be interesting... I have never been very "handy" but here I go...
