Cleaned out and further inspection

Now that we have the trailer home and still all in one piece its time to clean out and really see what we have gotten ourselves into. We gloved up and masked up and away we went. Good news we found the missing interior vent frame, one complete window frame and the tin and frame parts for one of the exterior cargo doors. Bad news way more water damage and rodent damage than i had hoped for. It took about 2 hours to remove and shopvac out all the rodent nest and you know what out of it. But now we can see what we have to work with.

Just some of the stuff we removed from inside the trailer.

Sink cleaned up nicely and counter not half bad but we are replacing the counter top.

Old paneling someone was going to do repairs with ( not even birch, just door skins).You can see the cot style bed just above the main bed.

Above the sink is where the original water storage tank is, the water dispenser is sticking out of the cabinet.

Yes that’s a jaw bone we found in the drawer just below the stove. The lamp globes are in perfect shape, so lucky to have them. And the coolest thing we found above the door was the original fire extinguisher, don’t think it was ever used feels full

The sink,ice box and stove are in great shape. The cabinets will need some panels replaced do to water stains, rodent chomping and 58 years of wear and tear. If your a Shasta owner you know the leakage problem areas and the damage that causes. Well ours has it in all 4 corners up to the windows across the front and across the rear. The floor is soft in some spots and has a large hole in it near the sink cabinet where the rodents chewed through it.

Deep breath and now lets do this…..
