Steve,

I drove 4000 miles each way from Anchorage, Alaska to Rice, Texas to pick up a new Casita five years ago. My first used trailer I bought on the same street I was living on. My latest used trailer was 1100 miles from home. So I don't really have a limit, I guess. Those 21 RB's seem to be really scarce right now, so get one if you can wherever it might be.

As mentioned in my original post, I really didn't expect an answer to my question. But the comment made by Phil Underwood sort of hit the mark.

I know the question was related to **used** - but I will chime in anyway...

We drove all the way from Sacramento to Backus to adopt our 5er. THEN we continued east to Niagara, VT, NH, ME, MA, and so on - to see the Fall Colors. We took a month off - which is hard to do... unless you are within a year of retiring ANYWAY - then what can they DO to you??? Make me leave early???? And on the way home visited some church friends who moved to Pueblo, Colorado. By-the-way... after seeing OUR lil Scamp, they went to TX and got their new unit - "Cassie".

So, for US we put on around 8,500 miiles,

Unhappy

It is a Travel Trailer, if you can be certain it is in the condition you want at the price you like and is the model/type of trailer you are looking for, especially if this type of trailer is hard to find in your area, why not travel to pick it up? Make a vacation out of it or a holiday as they say in Canada & Britian.

Back in 2000 when I was looking I couldn't find a used Fiberglass trailer. I ordered my Scamp and had it delivered.

I only drove about 100 feet up the driveway to the street to get mine and back of course.

Trailer: Trillium
Posts: 25
I'm about to drive 3500 km to pick up a trillium 4500. I decided that if I found a decent one near my wife's family that it might be a good way to get in a long overdue (6 years) visit. Making a purchase at the destination is a neat way to cut down on towing costs

Cheers!

Glen

Steve,
Eggs are addictive! For our second one, we went a little over a thousand miles each way. Per mapquest, it is a 15 1/2 hour trip....took 2 1/2 days going and even less coming back, in order to beat a snowstorm in Oklahoma, we only rested 2 hours and drove straight through. I agree, it is all about how much you want the little jewel! We feel they are worth a little inconvenience.
