Prior Equipment Questions...
Does the trailer have functional heat/AC?
No AC, but VW engineered vents you can open for fresh air flow when driving. Also, you can replace the tubes that bring heat from the motor to the front.
Is the trailer in good driving condition? Any known issues?
There is an oil leak that needs to be fixed, you have to check the oil every couple of weeks. Sometimes when it's cold it takes a while to start, but runs smoothly. It is a VW vintage vehicle, manual transmission not easy to drive if you don't know how to drive stick. We serviced it often and developed a good relationship with a mechanic, recommend you do the same.
What is the reason for selling?
It took us years to save money to convert it and find the right builder, the conversion took a long time, by the time we had it inspected, permitted, and ready to go we were established as a pop up vendor at markets, the transition wasn't easy. This is the reason why we are selling it, better to pass it along than it sitting. It was cared for and converted thoughtfully, not perfect but unique.
Is the plumbing in great working condition with no leaks?
Yes, no leaks. Everything works with approve gap drainage.
Are the service/repair records available?
Yes, all records since 2012
What is the brand and voltage of the generator?
Generator is a Firman P03602 3,550 watts. It has custom made steel cage with lock that attaches to the hitch in the back.
Where is the oil leak located?
