Camper trailer at Hemlock Acres, Coburn PA

Dear Board,

I'm toying with the idea of selling my camper. It's located at Hemlock Acres Campground in Coburn. The actual site of the trailer is at the upper end of the campground abutting the woods.

http://www.hemlockacrescampground.com/

I bought it with the best of intentions and planned to have a nice fishing camp for myself and the occasional visitor. Circumstances have changed and I simply don't have the time on weekends to go up there like I thought I would when I bought it.

So here it is.

It's a 1984 Carriage House 26 foot fiberglass model. It is clean, dry, and serviceable as they used to say during my military days.

The good - It has a bedroom with two good single mattresses and a sleeper sofa that will sleep one adult. The heat, A/C, stove, refrigerator, and water pump all worked when I last visited last year. The floors and carpets are worn but there are no soft spots and trust me, at 330 pounds I'd have found them if they existed. It's a solid well built older camper trailer. I have a clear PA title to the trailer.

The bad - The drain valve for the blackwater tank broke when it was drained just before I bought the camper. I never bothered to fix it. I never used the shower or toilet facilities other than to check that they drained and to dump RV antifreeze into the tank. The camper is not registered, it needs brake work to be road worthy.

Included in the sale will be everything you need to use the camper as a sleeping shelter, including a water hose, heavy duty outdoor extension cord, electrical adapter plug, microwave oven, and a working vacuum cleaner. I have some plastic chairs and some other sundry items that will stay too.

The lot rent is paid through the end of the year. The season typically ends with water shut off in late October/early November. Toilet facilities and water remain available for Buck Season in the lower bath house at the campground. Electricity is available 24/7/365 for you adventurous types.

The trailer is being sold in as is where condition,

I'm asking $ 1250.00 for the title to the trailer and the use of it for the rest of the year.

Hi Tim,
How does the electric work out there? Individual meter?

Dear jdaddy,

It's a pay as you go plan. In all honesty, it's been a while since I stayed over so I'm guessing a bit. Based on what I paid in the past to stay it's around $ 5.00 a night. I might be off a bit one way or another on that but it's pretty close.

You do have the option to stay plugged in at a reduced rate so that you can keep food from one week to the next.

In the spirit of full disclosure, yearly lot rent for this year was $ 965.00, I can't speak for next year's rent.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Sorry to hear your selling your camperbut if your not able to make it up, it's not worth having it. You know if I'm up there your always welcome to stay with me.

The question about the electric it's $2.50 a day. Not real sure, I think the electric is included in the price for day campers.

Dear Paul,

Thanks for clearing up the answer about the electric cost. My answer just shows how much I've been up to my camper!

That's not bad at all. Better than having an individual meter with $20 minimum monthly service charge year round.

This seems like a good value. Anyone interested in chopping it two ways, as I probably wouldnt be there more than a few weekends per year.

If it were down the street from my house, I'd go in.

hmm, tempting, specially the split it offer. The answer is likely no with a kid on the way and life changes coming, but I have to admit it has me thinking....

Dear Board,

It looks like I have a partner agreement in the works that will let me keep the camper. Nothing is etched in stone, but I am confident that things will be worked out.

I apologize for getting anyone's hopes up unnecessarily. That wasn't my intention.

Regards,

Tim Murphy
