Well, thanks y'all for the advice. She is UPS second day air to me, the title, registration, key, bill of sale etc. She's written up a document giving him permission to tow it to me through Tuesday (ie arriving Tuesday). He probably will arrive Monday, though. They will call me when he arrives.
No, I don't have special insurance, in case something happens. And she is letting us use her tag, which is really nice, and solves a zillion bureacratic issues. So basically he's towing it, period. I won't even yet have the key when it arrives (we decided that was best, so it's locked, and even though he seems a very nice guy and has no interest in going in it, for liability issues, I'd rather not have the temptation.)
I have chemical and mold sensitivities, that was an issue per my previous posts on here, which is one reason I'm still very anxious, and yet it's the reason i bought it. Utah is dry, it was stored under a carport, not cooked in, and she has chemical sensitivities too (she is the second owner), so, she didn't use fabric softener, pesticides, or crap that would poison my delicate system.
But there's no proof there might not be some rot somewhere, who knows. I've read the long thread here where someone is rehabbing a burro with a totally rotted floor and the plywood was only 3/4 inch or something like that. Because it's double walled, rain can get in thru leaky windows
and into the floor. But since it was in a dry climate and stored under cover, and not used much at all in the last ten years, as the previous owner had a fifth wheel, well, I have fingers crossed, plus this gal had looked it over fairly closely before she bought it herself.
It seemed better than buying something sight unseen in the southeast where I live, simply because, it's very humid here at times and unless an owner is careful, lots more problems can arise. And the fact is, even when a trailer was four or five hours from me, I'd never get a chance to see it if it was well priced, as it would be sold in a couple of hours.
Well wish me luck! It might not work out, I'm prepared for that. I hope it does though. I suspect I"ll replace the carpet with nontoxic wool berber high quality carpet, or maybe some other nontoxic flooring, and the water tank needs to be replaced, and I'll probably put miniblinds up, maybe I will even put a really beautiful sink in or something. A few small touches. I want simplicity though.
Please all send me good wishes, prayers, and any good thoughts that it all works out!
