-Galley area is surprisingly open & roomy, we have literally entertained in the space on rainy nights, so comfy and cozy! 

-Water pump for sink & toilet

-A few scratches & dings as we use this beauty all the time

-New 30 gal H20 tank

-Has a small patch (maybe 4"x5") of water damage in corner over back bed. Why not fixed.... because not worth doing. It leaked right after it was restored at that corner and once noticed the top of the outside seem was fixed.  This trailer has never had water damage except for that place and has never had a leak except for that corner. 

-New 12'x8' awning with inclosures which have windows & door, a great outdoor living area.  When we put up the custom sides we used double cot bunks that our kids, when they were younger, would sleep on. We could put our TV out there and if you see in pics we have a great living space under awning. One sides are attached it literally turns into a 12' by 10' living room that keeps heat in winter when we use our portable heater, and cool in summer with a fan and netted windows open. Adds privacy area and it is so amazing for family's OR just two peeps, it's really awesome!

-We have been a vintage trailer family for 13years, have had many, this 48 was our 1st, rotated through some other beauties, but could NOT give big blue up until now. This is literally the hardest thing I've ever done, lol!..... That is giving my baby up!
