Thanks for posting the link! Looks pretty good! Anybody in the Redding area to check it out? I've been searching Craigslist for the right TD but somehow I missed this one. AL

Yep, $2,800 is a steal for this trailer!

I haven't seen it for several years, but a local car guy "restored" it quite a while ago, and it is nice! Not a strict restoration, but still a nice Ken-Skill!

If you want it, you better be jumpin' on it ... :D ...!

CHEERS!

I just bought it! Thanks again for posting the lead! The seller was very gracious, now I need to figure out how to get it back to Wisconsin. I sold my 2004 Hunter tear last summer and I really miss it. I've wanted an original for a long time. I'll post pics when I get it home. AL

Thanks Randy! Here's a pic of my Hunter behind my 50 Ford shortly after I blew a rear tire somewhere in Kansas last summer.

Congrats!!! Wow, I'm so glad someone on here got it. If you are travelling anywhere close to Nashville, TN to get it, I live just north of there, close to the KY/TN border. I would LOVE to see it up close and personal. If it's at all possible, you can email me at LiLRedmg@aol.com

Again, you got a steal!! WTG!!! :applause: :applause: :applause:

I have a friend in the auto transport business. I will see him at the gym in the morning and I will ask him about it. It is Redding CA right?

Dan, Thanks, it is Redding, CA. Their zip is 96001, mine is 53805.
Mary, I REALLY appreciate the posting. If I end up driving instead of shipping, I'll be heading west through Iowa, Nebraska and on..... Maybe next summer!

You're very welcome. I hope to see it someday. I was thinking that Redding was in Pennsylvania. Oh well.....

I hope you have many many years of happiness with it.

Merry Christmas!!

Congrats on the purchase, Al!

I'm sure you'll be pleased with it! Duane was a great, enthusiastic, involved, & very helpful car guy ... and I'm sure he'd be pleased to know his treasured Ken-Skill is going to another enthusiastic car guy ... :thumbsup: ...!

CHEERS!
