Shasta Industries 25 Foot Travel Trailer For Sale

Up for sale is a very nice Shasta travel trailer, in which I have proudly owned for 23 years now.  The trailer has always been used by my family, with the most love and care, and has never been smoked in or has never had any of our pets in it.  We now want to pass it on to someone special to create their own wonderful camping memories.

I don't really want to sell our trailer, but with our current young family situation, we aren't and just won't get much use of the trailer for quite a few more years. This is really a great trailer but since we had our 2nd child, we're taking a short break from RVing, and someday hope to return to RVing, and even upgrade to a motorhome. My wife and I now have a 5 year old daughter, a 3 1/2 year old daughter, and a 2 year old son, so if we held on to the trailer, it would probably would just sit around collecting dust. Other than internet newsgroups, and a few free classified websites, I have not advertised our trailer at all, so many people still do not know it's for sale. My spring season plan is to take the time to clean the trailer from end to end, raise the selling price, and advertise locally in newspapers and trader magazines. If you are interested in the trailer before the big spring rush, please contact me to come and see this great trailer.

Known trailer issues of little concern
* Some of the interior fabric shows sign of dry rotting.  This has never really bothered me so we just used the trailer as it is, and never bothered to reupholster the original cushion covers and curtains.
* Since we have always gone camping in the summer months, we have never used the furnace, so although I can tell you the air conditioning has always worked great, I don't know how well the heat works.  I suspect it might need updating from a pilot light controlled system to a direct ignition system, as I did with the hot water heater.
* There might be a ceiling leak in the area of the vent/skylight directly over the tub in the bathroom tub.  Since it only slightly leaked directly into the tub, I never explored this issue more to find out if the vent was left open in the rain, or if the vent actually leaks.  Their is some water damage / staining in the ceiling area directly around the skylight fixture.  The trailer and the tub stays perfectly dry, even after the heaviest of rains.  I was never very concerned about this issue, so I never did anything about it.
* At the time of our last camping trip in this trailer, I washed and waxed the camper bringing it to its nice bright luster shine.  Since then, we have stored the travel trailer in a secure, slightly wooded area, so the trailer just needs a simple, good wash and wax job.
* The emergency brake controller, that activates the trailer brakes in the event of a trailer disconnect, might have to be repaired or replaced since it's never been tested, depending on your state inspection criteria.
* One of the louver window's crank mechanism is not working properly.   Even though the crank turns normally, it does not open the window.  The window can be opened and closed manually.
* Some of the window screens are torn around the edges, and this might not even be noticeable, but if needed, these screens could easily be re-screened at your local hardware store.
* The trailer awning has a small ~6 inch tear where it connects to the trailer on the left side.  It has been this way for as long as I can remember, and it has never hindered the luxurious use of the awning for a nice shade.

Shasta Industries Travel Trailer Layout
Here is a trailer layout I drew up myself, on a house design computer program.  Please know that this drawing is only intended to be used as an approximate reference, and not as an exact scaled layout.

Bed Areas
Here are some photos of the bunk areas in the trailer.  The upper double bunk comes with a nice mattress, and aluminum ladder, that also doubles as a kids' safety rail.  The front quadruple bunk is a super king-plus size bed with a very nice plush mattress in very good condition.  The middle double bunk is the only one with the dry-rotted mattress cushion covers, but they are the type of covers that easily zip off for easy cleaning or replacement.
