Probably less valuable. I doubt they fall into the category of "collectibles".

Fortunately, much of the hardware aboard them is "off the shelf" stuff. The lifting mechanism and gaskets though might become a problem when they need replacing.

There's another manufacturer that produces a similar product: It's called "Trailmanor". They open to a larger size than the equivalent (towing) length Hi-Lo, but I've heard they have had problems with leaks. The certainly have a more complicated "folding" concept, which has more seams that could leak.

We looked at them before getting the Hi-Lo and rejected them for the potential leak problem and a kind of "complicated" setup inside. They're also more pricey than the equivalent tow length Hi-Lo.

well people like me and many on here will be there to buy them cheaply and maintain and enjoy them when people who don't know dump them.

Our dealers are still out there, I'm sure that they will continue to service our Hi-Lo's and will still have some parts available for a while. Hi-Lo warranties won't honored, but the appliances would still be covered by the individual companies. Plus they have the expertise to do the proper repairs.

I would say that it would be a good idea to get on the Hi-Lo website while it still exists and go to the dealers pages and get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the the dealers closest to you.

With the exception of the lift system most parts are generic to the industry. Hydraulic pumps and cylinders can be repaired so I'm not real concerned. Hoping someone will buy the rights and everything will be ok
