Default to buy or not to buy

1986 hi lo- heading out to look at it tonight. They say it's not leaking and that it raises fine- lowered the price to $500.

Thoughts? We have no idea what we're looking for but for that price a little family fun for our kids could be nice. We have elementary kids and baby. even if we used it for a couple of summers, we'd get our money out of it?! maybe.

I'll try to post pictures.

Welcome to the Forum!

I hope you find a real cream puff. Be sure to look for stains inside from water leaks and look down the length of the outside walls to see if there is any bowing or distortion. That will tell if there is any wood rot in the framing.

Make sure the tires are not all cracked before you start for home so you don't have a highway predicament.

Good Luck!

Default we passed

It was in very rough shape. The back wall and left wall were spongy. It's been sitting in the weather for a long long time. We don't have time for a project of that size, maybe someone else will save her!
