Told you it was in bad condition

Okay, here we go,

Righty ho, I do still have the chassis, it's my dads trailer now. When I get a chance I'll try to find the chassis number - i've seen where it should be but it's full of paint so it will take a while to get to it!

Like I said, is it really worth restoring? Wouldn't be for a couple of years as I've not got the time or the money at the moment...

Yes, get it restored.

Buy a power sander, take off the topcoat of peeling paint, and give it a good prime, then a gloss topcoat.
Running gear is very simple to look after, and interior you can do as and when.
If the hinges are all free then thats a bonus.

good luck, and keep us upto date with progress.

I would think that it would be a great personal achievement and bring a lot of satisfaction to get this one back on the road. Please keep us informed, and good luck.
