1984 U Haul Travel Trailer

Henry is an adventurous pup.  He has marked every post, tree, bush and fireplug in his home stomping grounds.  Now he is ready to broaden the scope of his piddles!  The last couple of months we've visited all the logical sites we could find - craigslist, RV trader, FiberglassRV.com, ebay - and they've been visited on a daily basis.  There isn't a lot available that fits Henry's demands.  

This is a 1984 U Haul Travel trailer.  Henry has decided it going to be his dream trailer.  Small enough for Mom to haul and maneuver when it is just the two of us, but enough room for Dad when he can come play too.

The top picture is a cool one all polished up and pretty yummy inside and out.  It is not for sale, but we found one - maybe.  It is in Austin Texas - 1366 miles from Whittier.  Mapquest said it would be a 20 hour drive.

The must haves that Henry's mama listed has been whittled down and down: 
  1. Light Weight 13' fiberglass
  2. No leaks
  3. "Move-in" ready
  4. and the painful one - went from wet bath to marine toilet
We plan to travel with our puppy fence for stops - to create a little Henry yard.  So, your job, my friends:  before I make the purchase, what is wrong with this plan?

    1. Thank you! I am so nervous waiting for the "doing business" call from the seller.

    2. Fridge?? Cooking gear?? sink somewhere?

      Are you really going to be happy with such little room? Only you and the Mrs know (Henry will be happy as long as you are there>)

  2. Hi Jo, Stella and Zkhat -
    It has an ice box (not a fridge) under the stove top. Sink to the right of the stove top. You are right, it is very tight. We can't pull too much more than a 13 foot with our Honda Pilot. We'll see how it goes.

  3. We think it's cute and just right for cold nights...you have to cuddle.
