I've been looking for a solid trailer to put in my backyard for a family member who is handicapped and wants her own place. Our rents here are sky high and she's on disability so renting a studio apartment is hopeless.

I found this trailer on Craigslist, but just noticed one photo showing what looks to me like delamination..not sure. I'm going to look at it tomorrow, but if water damage, I won't waste my time. Thoughts on this?

Look at photo on bottom row, right side, third to the left.

I’ve heard those front walls are floating. It’s very common for the fiberglass to breakaway from the backing. It may just be an age thing. What does the wall and floor inside look like?

If the front is the only place, it is one of the easier delams to fix. ( some would say that this particular damage is not classic delamination) If you buy it cheap enough, it could be a good deal. Use this as a bargaining point... And get some quotes using the pics on fixing it before plunking down the cash

I would keep looking. Definitely delamination, likely water got in the seam.

Under no circumstances should she buy that or even take it for free.

Could be a run-in with a tree with an even worst attempt at trying to mellow it out.

Looks like the support under it is broken.
