Default 1999 Hi-Lo

Would appreciate any assistance/advice, am new to enclosed travel trailers only been tenting for several years. Been offered a 1999-24foot, model #24TD for approx. $8k by dealer---"RV NORTHWEST, SPOKANE, WASH" which would be an 8 hour drive from where we live, Eugene Or. what should I be asking about (over phone) before taking that long drive, & what should I be looking for/at when we get there. I'm told it has AC, furnace, can see that it has refrig. stove top burners double sink, bathroom sink, toilet, & tub/shower combo. Looks nice but like I said, I'm new to this. Anybody? thanks Hal: confused:

Hi Hal,

Welcome to the forum! You may want to check the NADA Guides for values to see if the dealer's asking price is fair:

Travel Trailers/5th Wheels Price, Travel Trailers/5th Wheels Value & Travel Trailers/5th Wheels Trade In | NADAguides | Travel Trailers/5th Wheels Price Specs

I recently bought a HiLo and made up an inspection list in MS Word format that I could e-mail you if you are interested.

PS: Looks pretty clean online!

Welcome to the forum.
This was taken from NDgent's post here on the forum. It is a great go-by list. You can do a search of thinking about buying and find his post to read it first hand.

Basically, start with the visual items
1. Exterior
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
2. Interior cleanliness of the unit-
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
3. Test appliance functions
lights
fans
refrigerator
air conditioner
heater
water pump
range hood
stovetop
oven (if equipped)
microwave (if equipped)
stereo (if equipped)
4. Lift System-
Does the unit raise and lower properly
Check the lift system for hydraulic leaks (puddle under the trailer)
Check the lift cables to see if they are in good shape and not frayed
Check the seal between the upper and lower body halves for tears or damage
5. fill the tanks to the top and check for leaks
6. Battery
7. Solar Panel (if equipped)
