Default Interested in a 31' classic

Hello all..

I love Hi-lo campers because my parents had one when I was younger, and now I am considering purchasing one. I am eyeballing a 2001 31' classic with queen bed in rear, table/bed in front, sleeper sofa in the middle, etc, etc. Has lots of bells and whistles, except fridge not working. Owner claims the tires are new and is asking $7600. The pics look nice. If I had the VIN, i would look up the NADA value, but the camper is 90 miles away and I haven't contacted the owner yet.

I would appreciate comments and concerns.

P.S.
Something my wife mentioned.. Has anyone heard of a hi-lo coming down on the occupants?

Thanks again

Welcome to the forum. You don't need the VIN to look up NADA values. You do need to know what it is equiped with. The NADA values are kind of high.

Follow this checklist.

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)

The trailer has a safety bar and I have never heard of one collapsing on anyone. Hopefully there will be more replies with the same information!
