THE BAD STUFF:
The floor from door to rear needs repair. It's mushy. Soft. Springy. Not rock-solid. However you want to describe it. Not fall-through-the-floor weak, just not as it should be.
We’re moving up and moving on.
I don’t have the time or talent to fix the floor—maybe you do.
Or maybe you’re looking for a nice hunting trailer for the woods--something that's not a musty shack or trailer--at a good price.
THE BOTTOM LINE: $8,900
Check out bluebook and you’ll see how low this is. If you’re handy, this is a deal you won’t want to pass up.
