...because they can.
After we stripped the paint of the trailer, I thought the worst was behind us. I had no idea how much worse it would be.
Anthony removed the skin, and there was rot. Lots of rot. Of course there was rot! Why wouldn't there be? The thing is 50 years old. However, in addition to the rot, there was Bondo. Lots and lots of Bondo.
Everywhere the wood had rotted away, someone replaced it with gobs and gobs of Bondo. All of the rot and Bondo was going to have to be torn out and replaced with new framing. Yeah! More time and money!
