Trailer 1

 

Quick conversion of a 60 trailer from Ebay into the beginnings of a trailer.

The caravan had previously been used as a playroom, but as it had been sitting in someone's garden unused for about 5 years it was looking a bit scabby. So we hid it on a somebody else's drive ;-)

Externally, it was sort of off white, with pinky paint in places and interesting green slime.

While inside it was a mix of orange and red.

First the glass came out

Then the interior and the floor....

After that Elaine started chopping big chunks out of the walls with the jigsaw.

This seemed to affect the structural integrity a bit.

Allowing the remains of the shell to be separated from the chassis, which was then shortened.

Leaving quite a large pile of caravan in the garden, ready to take to the tip !
