    Still working on figuring out the model, year is 1982 but the camper section is 8' long closed, overall travel length is 13' ish. My brother and I got it from a relative that no longer needed it. Still need to do a thorough check up but for 30 years old it seems in good shape. Now to get the towing control module for my tow vehicle so I can start using it in the spring.

    I am pretty sure the surge brakes are not functioning, if we convert it to electric do we need to change the coupler/hitch out as well?

    Thanks everyone. A friend of mine recommended the site. Been a while since I've done any camping really but looking forward to it. Located in the north end of Seattle. The trailer will definitely make things easier for some of the matches I go to in other areas of the state, arriving the night before instead of having to leave super early the morning of.
