Got me a little fixer-uper to remodel

Hi, haven't been on for a while. I picked up this cute little 16' 1972 Terry travel trailer for my son. We are going to start fixing it up. It's got good bones, just needs a bit of tlc and some dry rot to be replaced. It's in my backyard, so I will be able to putter about it all winter.

It's too late and too dark to go get shots of the inside. I took those I posted at the previous owners house, just got it moved to my house, so tomorrow when it's light out, I will take some of the inside.

A couple of quick pictures of the inside. In the first, the former owner turned the guacho bed into cupboards. In the second, they had taken out the dinnette and put a cabinet down the entire length of the trailer. It has the table from the dinette attached via a hinge down the length of the tabletop so it swings up when used for a table and folds down to be out of the way.

Very nice! I used to have a 20' Terry and it looked very similar.

Why is the Duo-Therm scary? We are not using it, we're using an electric oil radator for now, the previous owner couldn't get the propane line to undo so he cut it. So no heat or stove at the moment. But if the Duo-Therm is not a good unit, we will get a new heater.

Some more pics of the inside.
The cabinet built where the dinette used to be. I didn't get enough curtains to cover the window, so my son put the cushion for the guacho bed up for now. lol

Here is the table extended. It can be folded down and it gives much more room for walking around in the trailer.

The one spot on the ceiling that needs to be fixed due to an old leak that is sealed now.

The bathroom is the one place that needs the most work. The floor is very spongy and kinda scary. It will definately need to be replaced, we are toying with replacing the entire floor, it's not the most firmest thing around.



He did some weird patching that we will take out and redo right.


But thats all that's wrong with the inside, I do think it's not that hard a fix, the floor will be the hardest and I will be picking everyone brains when we get around to doing that.

They were old exposed pilot units that tended to have issues with the plenum rusting out or cracking.

To start the unit or adjust the temperature, you remove the front, then light the pilot and set the temp via a little adjustment knob inside the unit.

Well, shoot. Just went out there and the tire we had to fill to get it here just went flat. We had a flat with the other one when were trying to get it home, thank goodness it had a spare. Guess I'll go buy a tire when I get paid.

Don't know how old the tires are but you might be better off getting new tires for it. They most likely have been sitting out in the sun baking and cracking sidewalls and tread areas. If going as far as you are and not get new mr. feelgoods is crazy. Thats like buying a cannon for killing a mouse...
