Hey all, been on this site for a few years with a pup but sold that last year after a break up & am back this year (solo) with a new to me Skylark 9'TC.
It was sold to me as a "70's" but the paper I found glued to the door under the fridge says FORM 1983. I think I need to try & track the serial number to find out exactly what I've purchased.





I had to drive 4 hours to get it but couldn't pass it up for the price.
I'll have to fix the area under the front window as there has been some water issues.The roof is solid and the tin is in perfect shape on the roof though.
I do trailer wiring as a hobby so I'm looking forwards to this project.
It needs new markers and a clean up but it's got a toilet which is what I was looking for.It has 4 brand new jacks on it which are worth 8 times what I paid for the whole camper
The black water tank is broken and the fridge does not appear to work but again,for what I paid........
Does anyone have a lead on new black water tanks?
I haven't tried anything to do with the propane system yet as I need to unload it and go through all the mechanicals and do leak tests.There's something about blowing myself up that doesn't sound very attractive.Ha,Ha

Yes, it's "up there".My trucks got a 4" lift with 35" tires,doesn't seem to be an issue yet as far as the truck handling the added height and I don't even have sway bars-yet

Thanks for looking

Actually DJ, I'm planning on smoke & co2 plus building a cubby just inside the door for an extinguisher and 1st aid kit-I'm kinda accident prone

DJ, I just noticed your "signature".
Thank you for everything you've done, seen, went through, and have put up with sir.
If I ever head to Boise I'll pm you-I'd like to shake your hand sir.
