BJB, It dont look like a old camper to me, it looks like what Tom said someone just put sides on it. If you look at it make sure you find out the axle rating and tire rating. Goodluck

I'd be worried about the way that tongue is mounted. On most trailers it's welded under the trailer deck in a few places & the better ones have a tongue that attaches as far back as the front axle.

How much is it? A good price allows for upgrading cash.
