Well I went on a hunt for a trailer to build for some desert adventures with my kids and came across this 1978 Coleman Concord. I had heard about it through a lady on Facebook and called the guy. He was just getting ready to put it up for sale. I asked him if he would wait until I could get up to his place to look at it (about an hour away) over the weekend. He said he would and and we made plans to meet on the upcoming Saturday. I loaded up my wife and one son and took the drive. We arrived and he had it all opened up for me. It was exactly what I was looking for. I mentioned that to my wife and she said "well its not what I had in mind" lol. So we struck a deal for $450. and off I went. It towed real nice behind my wife's Envoy so it should do find behind my Cherokee XJ.
Here's some Pics of it right after we picked it up, we stopped at a local Walmart to do some shopping, so I snapped a couple of pics with my phone.
Well we got her home and the next day (Sunday) We started in on the dissecting and disinfection....
We pulled all the canvas off to do some patching and repairs. Overall the canvas was in great condition for the age. There was just some seams that were starting to have issues and one zipper that will need to be replaced. I called a local saddlery and they do canvas repair so we'll be sending off to them.
The guy had replaced the suspension with some new make shift stuff and replaced the donut tires with some 13" trailer tires. I'll be redoing the suspension and might do some different tires not sure till I get some final measurements.
There are some electrical issues, Which is no biggie for me as I'm an Electrician, and as a past RV mechanic. We are going to do some interior remodeling, Different cushion covers, and some paint
I'm going to build a rear fuel rack with hitch mount, a spare tire holder under the trailer. and what ever else I can think of...
Here's some more pics of it in our Driveway,
