Default Project Camper...

I've got a project camper I am considering purchasing. Look forward to learning about difficulty, parts and repair if I decide to proceed.
Looks like a very helpful and knowledgeable group here.

Default Buying a project camper

Use the used buyers check list forpurchasing. Post pictures of the potential purchase. Many of us have done extensive repairs. Do you have a place to work on it indoors? How much $ do you have for repair materials. Are you handy?What year and model ? Be specific on what repairs it will need.

Just bought one a week ago myself purser. Make sure you understand how to raise and lower the trailer first. If this trailer has been sitting like mine was, most likely your guide rod needs some attention first. Also, in what position has it been sitting? In a raised up position like mine was or hopefully it is lowered down. This forum saved me a couple times now from costly mistakes. I am by no means an expert on anything, however I have learned where to start
