WTB - Sunspot or 12 1/2 MC

Ok, I am taking the plunge and starting to look for a tiny trailer. Any condition will do as it will likely be a total rebuild anyway.

Like everyone else, I'd prefer a SunSpot, but after looking at the floor plans for a '76 12 1/2 MC, I would be happy with either.

My budget is limited for this, but consider whatever is out there.

I actually had a lead on a 12.5 MC this morning, but it was already sold by the time I sent an email to the seller.

Whatever lands here will be fully photo documented, probably via a Photobucket or Shutterfly account. I will post a pics here, too, but probably not all off them.

We'll see what crops up over the next few months.

Steve,

I'd suggest checking craigslist in the areas throughout PA and possibly Jersey or MD. I do so every couple weeks and every now and then there's an old one for low money that needs overhauling. I don't know what kind of luck you'll have with looking specifically for a Sunspot or '76 12 1/2.

I'll keep my eyes peeled as I run around central PA and stop if I see anything that looks abandoned at the back of the property... lot of that around here.

If I come across anything that might look promising on craigslist I'll throw up a link for ya.

If you find anything close to where I'm at I can drive to take a look and a few pictures to save you an 'inspection trip'.

Best of luck in your search, hope you find something!!!

Take care,
Lode

I'll keep my eyes open for you Steve.

The 12 1/2' MC is more common, but many of them have been redone to some extent.

Let me know what your preferred year range is. There's not many '76's left any more, there's a few more '77's, but there's many more '78-'79's.

Jon

Lode, thanks! I have been looking through CraigsList every now and then, and will expand my search to include PA and other nearby areas.

Jon, no real preference on year. If more than one came up at the same time, I'd have to think on it some more.

I don't know how far I would be willing to travel for a 12.5 MC. Probably less than I'd go for a SunSpot. We'll just have to see what develops.

Budget is really tight until the fall so anything that pops up right now will have to be shelved until I can spring the extra cash.

Thanks to all!

Steve, at the Tear-Up, Eric (Outlaw) from the T&TTT forum was very interested in my Sunspot. He thought he'd seen one near him -- one of those 'stored out back and forgotten' trailers, and though he said he didn't really have time for another project, he'd consider it because they're so hard to find.

It might be worth it to shoot Eric a PM and ask if he has the seller/owner's contact info.
