I missed out on one over the past few days, unknown year or model Hi Lo my wife spotted on fake book marketplace, only took the guy 4 days to tell us it wasn't available anymore.
That one I estimate was between 82-85 model by the limited pix we had and searching here and on Google for others that looked like this one.
I'd like a 21-22 footer, don't really need anything bigger.
A mild project would be alright but not a total teardown and build up from the ground.
Looking for " bang for buck" more than a certain price point.
My current camper and the one before it were both Apache hardsides, aka "solid state".
One thing scares me a bit on the hi Lo's.
I seem to see quite a few with roof leaks, and with the skeleton of the upper half rotted out. That seems like a common theme among those being parted out. Though cables seem like a common issue on these, that by itself isn't a deal breaker I don't think. I've dealt with lift issues on the apaches before.
How big of a problem is the camper skeleton rotting out?
I've even seen (if I'm interpreting the model numbers and year built correctly) 07s and 08s listed with this issue. .was it a "certain year" thing?
Or is it a "if 08s are old enough already to be rotted out that something say in the 80s/ 90s would be expected to be"dust" by now?
