Just to say hello, been lurking for some time and decided to introduce myself. I bought a used Wildwood at auction in Oct. Four days after returning home, the DW fell and broke her leg (compound fracture). Needless to say I wasn't able to use my new toy until May, but I digress.

The trailer was not the best deal I thought it was. The previous occupants were PIGS. I spent 4 days and a gallon of Clorox Cleanser cleaning and disinfecting everything. Made new kitchen drawers due to food stains that I was unable to remove. New converter, microwave, mattress, toilet, and blinds.

All the above was just a portion of the repairs, but I think I know this trailer as well as if I had built it.

Proving or test flight was three day camping trip to Winstar casino for a lot of golf, and little bit of gambling. All went well except for a newbie mistake with the shower head not realizing it had its own dial shutoff.
