 +>> All images above this line are of the trailer in the condition we bought it.  Basically all electric was dysfunctional but the upholstery was redone. ​ The water system didn't work.  The propane system still kinda worked but only had one tank attached.

 +The Side, Front, and Rear Go-Lite Logos are reproductions made from a crayon rubbing of an original logo painted over in white on the rear hatch. ​ A vector file was made in a program similar to Corel Draw and then given to Fast Signs who cut it out in vinyl as labels. ​ The logos were then put onto thin white sheetmetal which was then riveted to the trailer. ​ This was done because the thin sheetmetal was flat vs. the ridged trailer sides. ​ Not completely original in terms of build, but the logos were a spot on match. ​ The original locations of the logos were the same as where we installed the replacements (front, rear, and both front sides up high.

 +The Sunchaser Case Awning was found on a Toyota RV in a Junkyard. ​ It was only $25 without poles. ​ Poles were fabricated out of 3/4" EMT conduit tubing and associated fittings.
