    dont know the year of it yet but cant complain about the price. $75. good thing is i think i can put a hitch on it to haul the boat behind it and still be legal on length. 2-300 bucks should get this thing in good condition. then i can start savin up to "pimp my camper" :smile2:

    the outside shouldnt be much work and it seems solid.

    here is the inside. this is gonna take more work. from what i was told the stove works. need some work on inside walls in some spots and some other touch ups. floor was surprisingly solid.

    Looks like a nice little unit jj Just be careful if your going to pull your boat behind A guy can get in a lot of trouble real fast especialy with a single axle trailer pulling one behind It can get to whippin on ya and put ya right in the ditch !! But it would look good with some of those Mexican dingle balls hangin in the window :smile2::smile2:

    That is cool as he!! JJ. That is perfect. Ashley and I have thought about eventually seelin the house and gettin one to live in. Alot cheaper than livin in town and you can live anywhere you want. It should be fun fixin it up and updating it to your tastes, which should be interesting.:wink::smile2: If you ever make it this way you can put it in the driveway and I will even let you use the electricity.:wink: Post some after pics.

    i hear ya on the whippin around. i get hell all the time on my drivin anyway. i drive too slow for everyone it seems. i wonder if those stablizer bars for the big bumper pulls would work for keepin things tightened up. put a set on for the camper and a set on for the boat too. or better yet, 12 ft. camper and 16 ft. jon w/ no pivet between em. approx. 28 ft., i could get that around.

    Looks like some fun times ahead for you know. Forget the boat just build a platform around it and put it on some toons then you have a place to stay and a boat all in one. :wink:

    Really JJ looks like a good deal. I bet you have a lot of fun in it. I really dig the link to the off road trailer you posted. A friend and I have been talking about building something like it for several years. He is a heck of a designer and metal worker. They have been real popular in Australia for years but just never caught on in the U.S.
    Sorry to hear you are out of work (me too). We may all end up living in J.J.'s Mobil Cat House down by the river the way things are going.

    mount some rod holders right below the back window back it up to within a few feet of the lake/river and yer in business. Be careful hauling it I saw a double rig like that in the ditch on 69 2 weeks ago.

    JJ that looks like a nice rig for the $$.
    Cant wait to see it when you rig it all out.

    Make sure you go through the wheel bearings before you tow it.
    It sucks to have one go out on the road.
