Hunter:

You might try contacting J&R Trailer Repair in Mt. Vernon, OH. Jim and Rob run it (they also pop up on this forum on occasion), and Jim worked at Hi-Lo for a number of years. They specialize in Hi-Lo repairs and usually keep a list of Hi-Los that they know are for sale, or might be for sale, and sometimes are able to put buyers and sellers in touch with each other. Their number is: (740) 392-1600.

Sam--the wife bought me a barn so I had to fill it up. I have thought about the Holiday Ramblers--pre 1999 or so and the Arctic Fox trailers which are 4 season campers. The latter are real spendy. I do know the wearabouts of a 1997 Holiday Ramble but the hot water pump leaks and I know of another leak as well. Parts are impossible to find I think and none of the Ramblers have owners manuals. Ramblers used to be the trailer that people would look for if they wanted real furniture--not laminated stuff. I've had so many of the tall Rv's and am starting to think smaller these days, thus the Hi Lo came to mind. See a lot of campers in storage here without covers and I think it's because of the belief that if water would get thru the cover, mildew can grow. Thanks for your reply.

Default Getting a HiLo

My DH has done a decent job of filling up our basement and attic. Most manuals for RVS aren't worth the paper they are written on. Some people think RV covers will harm the paint if they shift in the wind. RV covers are made to breathe. Funny story about our attic. DH had lots of stuff thrown on the floor. 50/50 if you could find the hardware to make a repair. One Christmas season he had two weeks off from work. I put both leaves in my dinning room table and brought down bag after bag. DH said "I am not going to sort through all this stuff. I had purchased many storage containers and we used our label maker. It all got sorted and we finished putting up the drywal and painted. I stained and finished the plywood floor. Next wood shelves were added. Spent about $300.00 on plastic totes. You can stand up in the middle of the attic and the space heater works very well. No garage..so this is DH work shop. " This is very nice says DH". Our screw tote is so heavy it takes two of us to lift it. Sometimes he doesn't have the right screw/bolt and heads to HD. Told him if he died first I wasn't going to be left with this mess. Presently he is repairing some antique radios. Every so often I make him put things in the proper place in the attic. He still manages to loose a few tools in the house. The adventures with toolman.

I could use a little organization myself. Might find all the duplicate tools that I've purchased over the past few years. Did a 4 or 5 state search around Colorado and found no classic Hi Lo trailers. Wrong time to look for one of these I guess. I search this site each day also. Most trailers seem to be in Eastern states and a few in the South. Did talk to a guy in the know about Hi lo's and he approved of them so guess i'll keep looking for now.

Be patient, they're worth waiting for! Took us 6 months of looking and drove from southern Colorado to Las Cruces, NM to look at one that looked like it'd been used by a college fraternity. Took another trip to Kearney, NE to look at one that was acceptable, but just not perfect. Next trip was to see one in Dallas, same story as the previous. Later, drove to Boise, ID to find our perfect Hi-Lo. We just made each trip a little adventure and made it fun. Springtime will bring more onto the market.

Good luck!

Piperjim--i'm getting cut off trying to respond to your reply. Anyway, sounds like you really went out of the way to find your Hi Lo. I should have you do my looking--ha. Different people have different opinions about what excellent condition means. Makes it hard to decide weather or not to go that far to look at something. Pics don't tell the whole story either. Oh well. Thanks
