Default Don't buy a HiLo.

Don't buy a HiLo if you aren't a very social person. Everywhere we go we get curious people asking about the HI Lo. On our last campout found out about a HiLo owner in his 80s. He has a 1986 model and is able to maintain the HiLo.I love the line about buying it half price from the munchkins.

Yeah, every year they are a little more rare and get a little more attention.

Also in the garage, some stuff to pull it:
1999 3/4 ton 'Burb
1993 Roadmaster wagon (well, it probably won't pull it)

We have an '84 Hi-Lo BonVoyage and surprisingly find that we are being ignored by our neighbors. The only time there has been any interaction is when I had to step out to ask some brats to be more careful with their frisbee. They were letting it bounce off the side of the trailer, making a huge racket, scaring my wife. (She is disabled and we live in ours due to it being cheaper than an apartment, since I am also her caregiver)

Mine is a time capsule and very comfy. People are surprised how civilized the interior is, when they come inside. I appreciate those Buckeye craftsmen & craftswomen who made the trailer more than 30 years ago.

Since purchasing our 2003 Hi-Lo in January, we've had 2 people wanting to buy it, and it's still in storage!

Default Buying a HiLo.

The previous owner of our HiLo said someone wanted to know if her HiLo was still for sale. She was glad to sell it to a prior HiLo owner. Our learning curve was very short. It has been 40*. It makes us itchy for spring and camping.

I bet the buick will pull it as good as the burb. Towing capacity is 5000lb.

Well, pump up the airlifts in the back and take it slow ... it would get there. Eventually
