Thanks guys. This forum rocks!
I was mostly worried at first about accident damage as with cars that can be a reliability problem down the road, cosmetically it doesnít bother me. It lowers and raises fine now that they replaced the cables. The seller is using an ebay resale store and wonít allow the trailer out, so I canít take it to an RV place for an inspection. I checked it out myself Saturday and there are also cracks in the outside siding, not deep but several inches long, with the possibility of water having gone in there. Thinking of getting a mildew test kit. Overall it looks nice, lots of little dings and cracks, some lights donít work, the AC only blows on medium, the heat blows but doesnít get warm, the frig feels only a little bit cold. There was a wet spot under the hydraulic, supposedly from filling it.
I am very much on the fence about buying this trailer. It is still winterized so I canít test the plumbing. They want 5k (Nada is 4600), there are only 2 in Colorado right now, the other an 88 so they do seem somewhat rare. I wonder if more will pop up as we go into the season and how much hi season will drive up the price. All can be fixed, but with already over blue book I wonder if itís worth it.
Any opinions and advice are appreciated, I am totally new to this and want to be smart with a tight budget.
