1972 Skippy 19' in Waterford, Michigan https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=312 Wed, 24 May 2017 11:13:29 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=312 1972 Skippy tandem axle trailer. We have a title for it. This trailer was used by the prior owner as a hunting trailer for many years. He put goop on the seams to try and protect it. It has had water leaking issues from the roof and I believe there is still some water intrusion. All the windows are intact. The refrigerator is missing, the stove is there but I don't know if it functions. Some of the plumbing lines have been removed from below the sink. This is a total rebuild trailer, which will allow you to modify it to suit your purposes. I love the lines of the exterior and it will be really cute repainted. We were going to have it restored to our tastes but ended up going in a different direction with a different trailer. Exterior lights worked when we towed it home. 19' from bumper to top of tongue. Will need some welding to the back bumper. Being sold as is, where is.

1961 Bonanza Travel Trailer *Hazel* https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=311 Wed, 24 May 2017 01:28:32 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=311 We are selling our 1961 Bonanza –Hazel. We love taking something old and making it beautiful again. In rebuilding her, we decided to put a 4-post bed, including the box springs and mattress, so it is incredibly comfortable to sleep in. We also added an antique chest-of-drawers. With the shiplap siding on the interior accent walls and tongue-n-grove wood flooring, this trailer feels like home. The table also folds down into a bed so you can sleep up to 3 adults. It does not have a bathroom but we have just slid a port-a-potty under the bed. The outside is white with blue scallops, a yellow door and pink accents. Everything has been customized from the bench cushions, to the pink stove, green cabinets and the glass chandelier (removable while traveling). Hazel is 16ft from the tongue to the bumper—13ft body. She is 7ft wide and 8ft tall from the ground to the top—7ft tall body. She weighs approx. 1300 lbs We put a new roof on her 2 years ago and this spring had the axle checked, the bearing packed and new tires on her—she is ready to tow for summer. Hazel doesn’t have any water damage or leaks and is ready for you to start making memories in. The bed and the chest-of-drawers are secured, but removable if someone was interested in making a business out of this trailer. Please call, text or email if you are interested, want more information, more pics or have questions.

1952 New Moon 32' Travel Trailer https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=310 Tue, 23 May 2017 11:18:45 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=310 I'm selling my 1952 (I think) New Moon Travel Trailer. It's in good shape, doesn't leak, most of the interior is in tact, we had to redo one wall with tongue and groove to shore it up a bit. It also does not have the original fridge, but the rest of the kitchen and bathroom is original and in tact. Most of the original woodwork is in GREAT shape, there's a couple small water spots in a few places, but overall, really nice. The water will need to be addressed and fixed as we have not used the water or the bathroom since we got it 3 years ago. It has served as our "bunk house" at the lake.

1968 Terry Trailer https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=296 Mon, 15 May 2017 01:05:14 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/?id=296 This 20' Trailer is a good candidate for a full restore or simply some small fixes and she would serve just fine on someones property as a guest house (as we've been doing). I believe she is around 3000lb. She has a solid frame and new tires, she is road worthy. She made it through this years winter storms without any roof leaks. So the roof can be trusted. The gypsies that owned her before me painted her with house paint but the upshot is that the original paint is still in good shape underneath. The gypsies installed some wood flooring. (over the existing flooring). The wiring is good and works properly but the toilet and shower were removed by the gypsies to make more storage space. All the parts for the stove are there and just need to be cleaned up for use. There is a spot for a chimney through the roof that has been sealed. It could be used to install a small wood burning stove. Tags are clean and current. -The bad- 1 of the small windows has a crack As to be expected in a trailer this age some of the wood for the window frames is quite old and someday should be replaced...which would be a nice time to replace the old metal frame windows. The water lines are in place but lack filters. The gypsies took off the outer trim and put it back on with silicone underneath. For the right person and with some work this trailer would come back fully and be quite the little hang out spot. Our friends kids sleep in it when they come to visit over the summer and love it.
