What an interesting idea?
While I would be eager to help in any way I can,another member here I can not imagine buying one of these sight unseen and accepting delivery for it that way too.
I looked at one local here for another member a few weeks ago and it was amazing how much the description differed from reality.
Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder?
I had an experience a few years ago where I committed and sent a deposit to Texas for an older Casita
with the plan of going down for it a week later. I had received pictures and spoken to the owner several times asking specific questions repeatedly attempting to discern the "true" condition of the trailer.
Well guess what happened?!?
I drove for 16 hours down to an isolated rural area to find the worst misrepresentation of a vehicle I had ever seen.
There was a Camping world less than 1 mile from her house and I didn't think the trailer would make it that far! The frame was broken and the front of the trailer was not connected to the frame anywhere!
The worst part was that the owner seemed to not understand why I was upset. I don't know if it was an act(ithink it was though) and if she was just a liar or if she just really did not understand how nasty this Casita
I got my deposit check back,turned around and headed for home.
I also just sold a trailer this week. I tried to talk honestly and openly in boring detail about the condition of the Trill, but to me she is/was my baby so my image of her may be skewed.
I declined some offers to buy her sight unseen and instead had a good experience with Pat & Dale and a mystery guest(Feline) who assisted in the evaluation. It was pouring down cold rain and the trailer was mired in a muddy Polo Field so it merited a second look in the morning when drier and brighter outside.
In the end I felt that the Baxters were confident with the condition and roadworth of the egg and they left satisfied even when the lights
had a snag upon hook-up.
The point I am making here is that buying one of these without seeing,touching,smelling them can lead to a real disppointment and I am sure pleasent surprise too. I for one have had the former and would not consider trying one without being there in person.
As they say....One mans trash may be another mans treasure. I hope not be the one who gets the trash.
