Thank you everyone!
This is very educational. There are a lot to find out there. I keep hoping to find a older one in a barn or that has not been used much. Maybe the Lincoln Hwy yard sale? The boys are out rafting this weekend. I'm at home with the puppies.

You're welcome Pat. We're a bit prejudiced here, but I don't think anyone would steer you wrong either!

Be sure to print out Buyers Check List Here and take it with you when viewing a trailer. It certainly helps when trying to make an objective decision.

Best of luck

Actually, that is a great way to find one -- Just keep your eyes peeled for that rounded shape -- If you see one, stop and ask.

The wooden floors don't rot all by themselves -- It takes a pretty steady amount of water over a long time to cause the rot, like a shell leak, leaking water heater, leaking air-con drain, etc. -- Leaving a window open or getting it wet from driving in the rain just isn't a problem or we wouldn't be finding any used ones with floors still in them -- Most stick-RVs are built the same way with regard to floor.
