I’m a local carpenter in Austin, Tx who bought this trailer 5 years ago with 2 other local artisans to do a high-end resto-mod and then sell it for a significant profit. Our plan was to make it a true camper, not a simple plug-in party wagon. However, being the boom-town that Austin is, we have all been far too busy to spend the time needed on this project to see it through to completion. As it sits, all major systems are fully functional and it is basically ready to spray foam and build out.

Interested parties can come take a look and I will demonstrate functionality of all systems.

Price reflects HALF of what we need to break even. Offers from serious buyers will be entertained.
