Default Anyone near Ft. Collins, CO to check out a Hi Lo?

Hey all -

Found what I believe to be a decent Hi Lo, and am wondering if anyone is near the area to go check it out.

I can't get over there for another week or so, and am afraid that it will be gone by then. Would love to have an expert set of eyes look it over.

Had a great conversation with the current owner last night; very open and honest sounding gentleman who's the 2nd owner.

Here's the link; would love to know what you think -

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 the 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)

Thanks RCREYES -

I worked through the list as I spoke with the gentleman on the phone last night.

Trouble is, I'm about 250 miles from the seller, so I was wondering if anybody who might be more familiar with the Hi Lo setup was available to run by and take a peek.

I think we're going to try and buy this one; it looks to be a good one.
