1976 Holiday Rambler Alumalite Statesman 1000 28'

Picked this up today to use as a weekend home / fishing camp. Towed it 160 miles with no problems. I was hesitant to look at such an old trailer but the price was right and seems pretty solid. I am impressed with how nice the 40 year old interior looks.

I plan on keeping it hooked up to shore power and city water/sewer at a small RV park and will probably be bugging you guys with many questions!!

I need to replace the door latch and the rear external compartment door is badly warped.

I love that era of the Holiday Ramblers. Yours looks to be clean and in excellent condition. Keep us posted of your progress with any changes, etc.
