greetings! i am a first time trailer owner. fell in love with a 1957 canned ham, cardinal trailer and leapt before i looked. its a sweet little trailer with original everything including a yellow stove. once i got it home in my driveway and took off my rose colored glasses i wondered what i have gotten myself into. there is a lot more visible water damage than i thought and i am certain more rot. am considering having someone else do the work for me, since i was not looking for a project. i am a solo mom to 2 kids and look forward to being able to camp and explore with my girls once the trailer is spruced up a bit.
