This rare, Amerigo is turn-key; just hook up, add water and go camping. You will get lots of looks and folks that want to see your awesome vintage camper!!! 

Condition: Very good overall condition. 

The body: The fiberglass shell is 48 years old and in quite good condition for its age. The roof is excellent with no leaks. There are some small, isolated areas of cracking of the gelcoat, but this is normal and not a structural problem. 

The windows: To me this is the biggest selling point. Most fiberglass trailers such as the Burro, Trillium and Scamp: well they're great trailers, but they have tiny little windows, dark and claustrophobic. The Amerigo was designed with light in mind. Big, bright, panoramic picture windows. One Plexiglas window has a crack but not through to inside. Three of the windows open to let in a breeze.

The Chassis: Very good functional condition. The tongue and hand jack are in good condition. The tires are in good condition (not new). The bearings have been repacked with grease. The standard light hookup from truck to trailer works well, as do the lights. 

The Interior: New gray paint with cranberry accents and comfortable home-made cushions. All drawers and cabinets in good working condition. Brand new memory foam mattress on full-size bed. There is additional storage under bed and all seats. 

Electrical: Very good working condition. The camper is equipped with a 110 shore power hookup and new deep cycle RV battery. Lights, electric water pump, and stove fan, all work on either 110 by the onboard power converter (which converts 110 AC to 12 DC) or by the deep cycle battery. 

Appliances: Sink/Faucett: Brand new, excellent working condition. Operated by an electric water pump and draws from a 20 gallon fresh water tank under the front seat.

Suburban Range and Cooktop: Brand new, excellent working condition. 3 stovetop burners and oven run on propane.

Mini Refrigerator: Not an RV fridge. Good condition. Runs on 110 AC only.

Microwave: Good condition. Runs on 110 AC only.

Heater: Original built in propane heater. Works well.
