Talking Newbie from the great state of Florida

Well I'm not yet. I am looking at a surveyor to purchase and am trying to figure out whether I want to buy or not. There are two delaminations on this trailer, and just trying to figure whether I want to fix or move on. Most people say move on, my gut says but it and fix it, I have knowledge and skill.
Any way the wife is a nurse and we are going to travel nurse it for awhile. The kids are grown and it is time. I don't see the economy getting any better for us boat people any time soon so here we go. We have not been out of Florida in about 12 years, I think we are attached. We both a Floridian natives One from the keys and the other mid state.
Well thats my story and I'm sticking to it, time to become trailer trash as she puts it, no harm intended.

Welcome to the group.

Not doubting your ability but RV repairs can get costly quick (just like boats). Consider the cost of materials and your time into the purchase price and then look at what other trailers that aren't damaged are going for. If it were me I would rather put out more money to have one that wasn't damaged than to try and fix one.

If you do end up buying it and rebuilding it we would love a "restoration" tread on the work with lots of pictures!

Welcome to the forum. If you get one ready to go, you can get out now. If you decide to buy a model that needs work, it might take a while to get going. But that is your decision. Whatever you decide, good luck.
