Wanted: Cute Travel Trailer I'm searching for a small vintage travel trailer to be used as a part-time second home while on San Juan Island for my employment! Here is what I am searching for in a travel trailer: Clean title, 14 feet or less, structurally sound, 1800lbs or less, has its small kitchen appliances (princess stove and fridge/ice box), sink with faucet (can run water), and sleeps minimum two. The trailer must have an intact interior. However, it can be in well-loved condition! I have the ability to do general maintenance including basic carpentry work, painting, tiling, and finishing touches. In a perfect world, the trailer would have some sort of small bathroom, but certainly not a deal breaker. Ideal budget is under $2500, but will definitely consider up to $4000 if it's in excellent condition. I'm motivated to buy and have cash in hand. Prefer to find a travel trailer in the Whatcom/Skagit/San Juan/Island counties but will certainly consider outside this area if it seems like a good fit! Please contact me if you have something for sale that might fit this description! Brittany P. [email protected]   posted 01/27
