All the advice given to you is bang on. I sold my 1978 15' Trillium
that was in fantastic shape. It was owned by a mechanic who worked at Mercedes Benz and stripped it right down to and including the frame. He then put it back together and it was in fantastic condition.
I am still kicking my butt for selling it.
I bought and stupidly paid full asking price for a 1980 BOLER
17'. The sellers did a fantastic job of the inside complete with hiding water stains with mold retardant paint
Well...within the first summer the bed frame collapsed. The water tank spotted tiny leaks
and the musty odour started to creep in.Then a leak in the grey water tank.
Outside I need to replace the caulking around the windows
and belly band and there is a hole in the awning
None of this has actually taken away any of my fondness for this RV. The bed frame is being repaired, the mould has been cleaned up and newly painted. I have removed most of the caulking. I threw away the mouldy cushions and kept and cleaned their zippers.
I had a friend show me how to pack the bearings.
In a couple of weeks my friend and I are putting it up on a ramp and fixing the leaks
I am getting a larger tool box for Mother's day! I bought myself a sewing machine to make new covers. The foam was expensive.
The folks at the equipment rental place in town now know me.
Had I not been so swayed by how great my Boler
looked on the inside I would have noticed some of these issues and insisted at least on a safety inspection at an RV site.
Yes, I would still have purchased this unit
but for sure offered a cheaper price.
Because I am a single young senior woman who loves her FGRV and won't give it up I take it every spring to an RV center for a complete safety check, including the gas lines.Please do that.
My tow vehicle is a 2007 Grand Caravan with a class 3 hitch and I have a good electrical
Go for it Raj and have a great time.😀
