The front of my 1976 Cadet is set up with a table and a wrap around bench seat. Each side of the seating pulls out into beds, a single or the left and a double on the right with a small space between them. A ladder fits in this space to access the twin bed that is made from the pull down cabinet. Currently we leave our front area down to make a king size bed.

This is cool, finally found a place to discuss my trailer. I purchased my 1976 Coachman cadet about 5 years ago. it is a 22' long beast, lol. Before I purchased it the previous owners had to replace to floorboards in the front due to water damage, with this they took out the wrap around seating int he front and went with a queen sized bed, which we like cause we are able to use a regular queen mattress to sleep on. I door I do not think is the original which at times is problematic. I have replaced the water heater since I have made the purchase. Also the refrig only works on gas not electric, have no idea why. The heater has also been replaced with a catalitic type heater. Its rough, but works good.

One thing I would like to confirm is the weight of the trailer, according to the tag onthe out side the gross weight is about 3500 lbs, which seems light to me. My buddies 1977 18'ft wilderness is like 4700 lbs. Any thoughts or is this correct.

If you have questions on the weight you can also go to www.nadaguides.com and i believe they list the weight on there as well.

I did 4 trailers in a row. The last one was about 15 years ago but they were the canned ham style and the best way I found was to put the money in a bushel basket and use a snow shovel to throw it at the trailer.
I do find that once in a while I drift over to the trailer ads and start planning.

Maybe, someday.

Steve.

A truly great job. You will be able to show your trailer with pride of ownership.
It is a long trail but when you get to the end what a feeling.

You have inspired me to start looking. Just need to tell the familly I need a hobby trailer.

Super job.

Steve

I wish. I'm currently restoring my Nephews 1946 Chevy 2 ton truck but it's under cover. My brothers 1958 Plymouth wagon and the parts car in full view plus my 1984 Dodge class B camper and my sister in laws car, my brothers 1966 Ford wagon. Well you get the picture.

My sister in law St. Sharon is at the breaking point.

No trailers for Steve. LOL

Steve.

Well got to tell you that I have been looking at them a lot more but if I could buy one it would give proof to the "no fool like an old fool" line.
