1979 Scotty Trailer

So after looking at all of your great post and projects, we've gotten bitten by the vintage bug! We've been looking for a project and I think that I found it. There is a 1979 Scotty Trailer for sale. Looks like it's in pretty decent shape, they are asking $850 for it. Do you think that is a good price for it? I'm trying to attach the photo's I have for it but I'm not sure if I did it right.

Thanks for the input guys. We really looking for a conversion van type but this almost looks to good to be true. My issue is that I was looking for something we could totally overhaul and the interior is almost perfect and I feel almost bad replacing anything. Is that weird? I really kind of like that 70's feel to it and it feels like I would be destroying a classic. What are your thoughts on removing the original interior? Almost feels sacrilegious!?!?

Be sure and check for leaks and soft spots in th floor. Vintage Trailer Supply is good source for vintage parts.

I would jump all over that if I was in the market!

If it were me, I would want to stay with the old look. I'm sure there are a few things you could do to spruce it up but still keep the old look, like flooring and seat cushion color. Look at some yourube videos of vintage campers and you can get some good ideas on changes to make.

Unfortunately, my camper was too far gone with water damage to keep the old look too much.

Some place on this site is the picture album I posted of our identical unit. It served Denise and I quite well and was very easy to tow. I got to be quite good at repairs and I actually figured out a way to put in a grey water tank that ours lacked when we got it. The only reason we sold ours was to get a bigger unit for longer traips and then that went too and we bought an older class "C"
