Welcome aboard from SE Texas
There are tons of people on here that are willing to help you get it fixed up and it can be done.
Always send a picture, a lot of us are old and dense country boys so a picture is always best so we can understand what you are needing help on. There are some people that exquisite craftsmen. Me not so nice looking results but sturdy results .

What is your total budget? $400 is just the start. Probable purchases include canvas, tires, propane tank, battery, power cable door, etc. Converter work? Take a good battery and multi-meter when you go. Make a list when you check it out and add all the cost up. I've seen campers sold that should have been "Givemes" or paid to have someone to take.

Hi WrkrBee...:)
Thank You Very Much for replying...:) The man said it has new tires. By the Pictures, can to tell about the Canvas.. in person it looks ok.. No rips just a couple* tiny* tiny* holes, I'm sure I*can repair.. I have the propane tank .
I'm too new at this even to know why it needs a battery lol... it doesn't have a motor its small and I can just pull it. I'll ask about the converter (?) I'm sorry I don't know very much at all.. im starting right at the beginning*
I appreciate you writing back and helping me ... it gives me more things to research on the internet ...:) Also, the man said that he can, bring it to my house.. ( I don't have s hitch yet).
So, I'm assuming* its at least ok to transport...

That is the million dollar question. Pictures really do not tell the story. The only way to know is to do a hands on inspection.

See THIS link then check out the top two threads to learn what to look for.
That is correct that pictures do not tell the story making a purchase. I must have read your post wrong. Pictures help these guys to know what you are describing making repairs. Sorry about the confusion.
