Metzendorf For Sale! $3,999

Well we brought the camper to VT and just didn't use her that much to justify keeping it. She was only used a few nights as a cabin. I may put her on craigslist, but for now, I am just posting here. There are no leaks -- even through some major rain storms this last weekend. Many parts are original and you can go through the blog to see every thing I have done. I am asking $3,999. The camper is currently located in Southern Vermont near the Massachusetts border.

Calling all Metzendorf Owners!

Some asked me what size tires/wheels the Metzendorf has. Since mine is in the mountains, I can't check. Can someone post what is on their Metz?

Summer in the Green Mountains

The camper has her home for the summer. There will be no traveling about this summer to the Catskills and Adirondacks. Hopefully she will get some use as a guest cottage. The camper makes the cottage look huge -- and it isn't!

Another summer!

This weekend I am taking the camper up to Vermont. She will be serving as a guest cottage at our primitive camp up in the Green Mountains. It sure will be nice to have our garage free for other stuff! Where we live, all RVs must be stored in a garage. The Metzendorf is probably the largest camper that fits in a garage...without being a pop-up.

The 1962 Metzendorf is for Sale!

I have decided to put her for sale. The price is $5,000. I am only selling it so someone else could enjoy it and fully restore it.  However, if I can't get the asking price come June, I will just park her on my property in Vermont. If she were fully restored, I surely would ask for more. The trailer is located in the lower Hudson Valley, NY.

You can flip back through the blog and see everything I did to her. The fridge doesn't run, but is still all there. The furnace works and the two burner stove works. Fletcher's Vintage trailers rewired and put in new plumbing lines. Most of the original speckle paint is in good shape. If you are interested, please email me at corbitt.tracey at gmail.com or respond to this post.

Considering selling my Metzendorf

I can't believe it, but I am considering selling my Metzendorf. I love the little camper, but we have purchased land in with a primitive camp in VT. I still may just park it there and use as a spare bedroom but am starting to think that I should let her be adopted by someone who really wants this special little camper. I won't need a camper this size to keep in my garage (the law where I live).

I may just keep her through this summer and finish a few things I wanted to do and see how she works out. Our thinking is that we might want to get something a little larger as the spare bedroom...although the camp is pretty small.  It is less than 400SF... so may the little camper will be just perfect!

Winhall Brook Campground in the Green Mountains, VT

FEMA runs a campground on the West River in the Green Mountains of Vermont. I got a site with a leanto. This was great to put the excess gear in. I recommend getting one if you can. We brought our screen from our screen room and hung it across the open side. Instant screen room! Was here for the week of 4th of July. Was great except for the generators... see previous post.

Private beach and swimming hole. The water was deep enough to swim and current strong enough to create an endless pool!

Campfire with great view of West River!

Hamilton Falls -- water much colder than West River!!

Grout Pond and view of Stratton

A 'leanto' not the one I was using...forgot to take a photo of my site!

Best chicken BBQ!
