We are getting evicted and have until next Monday at midnight to be out. We have two little kids and nowhere to stay but I could definitely find somewhere to park a camp trailer. I am particularly interested in a tent trailer because we have a small SUV and can’t two a whole lot with it, but a tent trailer would be ideal. I can come up with about $400 cash to pay and can offer my services as a skilled laborer as part or whole trade for it. If someone would be willing to part with one they don’t use anymore and help out a struggling family, please give me a call and let me know. I don’t mind if it needs some work, but prefer it to be mostly in decent working order and condition.
The work I do is mostly landscaping, but have done a LOT of other skilled labor, such as furniture building, construction framing and foundations, roofing, siding, painting, general clean-up, small tree and bush removal… you name it, I have either done it already or something like it. I have a lot of useful skills and would be happy to work in trade for a camper.
My phone number is 503-995-1867.
