Not sure if I should be posting my experiences like this?? I had strike 3 on eggcampers yesterday/today......lol....uuggg.
I drove up to Alpena Michigan yesterday to look at one refered to my. I talked to owner first about condition/price. I had agreed price $ in hand (8 hours 1 way). Really nice owner! Original owner. The egg had some disappointments, and I took a deep swallow and decided to take it anyway. As he was filling out the title
, he accidentally put his name where my name should have gone. Void title
I decided to drive home w/o egg instead of taking egg and a promise of title
in the mail. Although after meeting him, I fully believe the title would have showed up no worries. I just couldn't walk away paying all that $ w/o a title. We decided to meet 1/2 way after he gets new title. He offered w/o me asking to take an additional $500 off for my troubles - that was very nice of him!
The owner said he does not do forums so I guess its ok to list the good and disappointments I saw but did not know before I drove up.
Beautiful interior! Nice upgraded cushions, fabric, curtains etc. All professionally done! Over all very nice interior condition!!!
Very dirty outside - although I looked past this - is was bad - black streaks etc from sitting for 2 years under trees. Emergency window came open during travel, so lots of extra mismatched / misplaced screws on the hinge to fix. Awning
in very bad shape - takes 2-3 people to hold everything to get it back in - like herding cats. I think its been forced in too many times and now its bulging at the seams. And lastly, it was backed into by car hitch resulting in a quarter size hole thru outer shell. Was fixed with bondo and spray paint
. Very much visible. Not structural - but still.....
So on the 8 hour drive back (from 9pm to 5am - straight back to work....uuggg), I pondered all this. Even with the issues - his final price is fair, and MUCH lower than asking price. But I decided to pass on it. I dont want the expense of fixing the patch, removing awning
(more holes to patch). And lastly - I wasnt too fond of the carpet on the roof. Cemented my decision for 2010 or newer no carpet interior, and now on my list - NO awning!
I'll keep looking!!
