Say goodbye to Sleeping Beauty :(

Well guys, I decided to sell her. The deal is about 99% and I am very sad. Had a chat with the wife and it is in our best interests to purchase a trailer that is ready to go. I have invested quite a bit of time on this project and might have been in over my head. I know I could have completed her, however, interests have changed. This was quite a journey and I would like to give a big thank you to all who gave such insight over the last several months.
I am looking for a newer bumper pull and will get a pic when I get it.
Thanks again.

As I get older I enjoy using the MH as it was intended ans less on doing the repairs. Guess I know my time to enjoy life is getting shorter.
Hope you get a nice trailer and go and enjoy it.

Sorry to hear that, but these creatures are a lot of work, even when newer. I hope you find yourself a nice TT to get out camping in.

What did you do with the Sportscoach you got to use for parts to outfit SB?

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

You have done some great work on her and have pictures to prove it. But if you must move on so be it. I hope that the next person to get her carries on with bringing her back to life with work as good as you have done. Keep us posted.

thank you.
