Meet Freddy, a Mercury,15’ from tongue to tail and weighs 1800lbs Appr. It was not a “barn find” and had been parked since around 1969.

After gutting Freddy the framing was reinforced/replaced as needed. Floor is new, walls and ceiling are foam insulated, tires are new, bearings and seals inspected and repacked. All new vehicle electrics and safety chains .

Walls and ceiling are 5/16” aspen paneling. Cabinets are birch and ambrosia maple. Curtains, futon cover and upholstery are bright and cheerful as well and stain resistant. Above the bed is a small upper hammock.

For a small trailer, there is a ton of storage space. The water tank sits above the counter next to the sink with a faucet at the bottom and there is also a city water hook-up. The original Princess stove has been meticulously cleaned, powder coated and works perfectly. Has a new Suburban furnace and the original ice box is also powder coated.

Has 12vDC and 120vAC outlet under the table. A new power supply charges your batteries when plugged into shore power as well as distribute the 120V and 12VDC to the various LED lights. Original gas light works perfectly. A 120 watt Go Power solar unit and controller charges two 6v 130 Ah AGM batteries hooked in series. The solar specific batteries are Power Safe by EnerSys.

The awning comes with poles, guy wires and stakes and is 9’ wide x 8’ deep. It’s a beautiful thing.
