If this was the case for me I would probably move the truck tag to the trailer so it would be seen???


Why would you put the truck license plate on your OFFROAD POP UP trailer?

I have a chance to obtain a none clear title TC it's a flooded title water probably ruined most of the inside. it mite be worth refurbing. what do you Guys think.


I think there's a very good chance you're going to wind up with toxic mold growing in the walls. If offered to me, my response wouldn't be no, it would be Hell No!

OK so the flooded title mite be a bad idea.

can't the interior be completely stripped then pressure wash all the mold w/ vinegar?

but the idea of a none clear title TC is still a possible way to save a few $s. I really like scratch and dent sales.
remember this truck & TC will only be used a couple times a year so initially won't be a a big financial burden.

The insulation alone would be a nightmare to replace and if you looks at the construction depending on the year, it might have wood walls then those would harbor the mold also.

Then there's the duct work and wiring, I'd pass...

If you want to save money go older and good shape vs newer and messed up, imo.

when did the industry switch away from wood? is aluminium material of choice now. current prospect w/mold is 2014 Travel lite. I could remove complete interia and refurb from bare metal & fiberglass cabover section.

I really like the way lower rear isn't stretched & lowered. which is the main reason for the TC not to be extended in back to interfere w/ launch retrieval of vessel. I'm hopping the tow vehicle being short in the back is more desirable.
after loading a 1900LB TC what's the tow capacity of minium F250?

my current TV is a SUV so I actually don't have a way to transport the TC.
I could fly to pick up TC rent a one way uhaul pickup.
or drive my SVU one way rental of a flatbed trailer again from uhaul.
curious what the mileage would add up to w/ the$29.per day rental PU?

for 950 miles miles .I like the SUV but will most likely get rid of in favor of a real capabil tow vehicle w/ small house.
thanks Guys and is it possible to post images here at this place?

You can’t toss a TC in a rental truck. Unless you’re going full redneck engineered and ruining the truck bed by running straps over the roof of the camper down to the truck frame.
If you’re getting a TC, get a truck, set it up for hauling a camper and then gets camper.
Your plan above has some holes in it that make it a non starter.
