Absolutely, do not forget to print out the Buyer's Checklist and take it with you when you go to look at any trailer. You'll find the info invaluable when contrasting and comparing different trailers for sale... and you're own memory!

resale value is definitely something to remember. if you find something that you think you might be able to work with, take the plunge and try it out. unless you get taken initially, 90% of the time you will make your money back or even then some. we bought our 13 footer for 3800 Canadian, this was low because the seller had paid that much 2 years earlier. it's in decent shape, looks nice tows great etc, and i can tell you, half the time when people come up to you and ask you about it, they'll also ask if you'd part with it. i've gotten what i would consider to be 5 serious offers from complete strangers, all of them more than what i paid, and one as high as $5000.

what i'm trying to say is that you can always sell it the next year if it's just not working out for you. just something to consider if you find something in nice shape that you like.
