Amazingly, I found an older post that Harry the former owner of my ParkLiner put up and nothing ever came of it. I swooped down to Virginia and snatched it lol!

Mary was driving by a small RV dealer on her way back from picking blueberries, saw the Uhaul between some big trailers, stopped and looked it over. They weren't open at the time. Found out the next day that they just took it in to sell on consignment. A little bribe made it ours.

I found 3 within about 6 month on craigslist. 1st was a dog- 15 minutes away, a lovebug but way to expensive for its rotten state ($3000, hit by a dumpster with cracked corner, side windows were glued over with silicon and plexiglass, owner was chain smoker...); 2nd was decent but a bit old and still quite some work about 1hr away, 3rd was the winner 2.5hrs away.

Craigslist, took a few junkers to find the right junker at the right price. My dad drove 5 hours one way to check it out and put a down payment on it for me, then I drove 8 hours one way to get it.

Craigslist 3 hours from home, 85 Casita, big dreams of remodeling it but then reality struck a few short weeks later when I found a 07 on Craigslist, which was a better fit for our camping needs. So off to Vegas to pick it up! Pretty stealth purchase because I found it basically on a weekend and couldn't get to Vegas to get it for almost a week. I spent days on pins and needles hoping no one would catch it and post it here on the referral forum. Well I made it to Vegas and back to CO that night it popped up on the referral forum! Old news as it was sold to me already!

I found my 13' Trillium about a block from my home. Had never noticed it's presence bf he put a for sale sign on it. Maybe he had stored it inside his shed.

Years later, when I decided I would like to try a 4500 Trillium, I saw one which had been moved to the front of a house with a for sale sign, just a few miles from my home. It too, had been stored inside the PO's garage, so I had not seen it before.

In both cases, I really had no idea what potential problems I should be looking for........it was bf I found this forum. I liked the looks of the trailer and bought them! A Higher Power was looking out for me and both units are/were in excellent shape. My daughter now has the 13' Trillium, so it's still in the family.

Found our Ventura through a friend. I told him I was looking for a Boler and he said his previous trailer was up for sale again at a good price for a fixer-upper! We headed out with his car and grabbed it out of an field for $800. Brought it home that day!

Donna, you are right, check out garage sales! Just bought my new to me tow vehicle at one yesterday! 2002 Ford F150 in good shape for $2400.

We saw our U-Haul sitting at the end of a driveway on our way to church. We bought it a couple days later. It was meant to be!

Never know where they will turn up...a friend spotted this Burro and recognized the shape, etc. not the name......because it was misspelled in the ad and placed in the wrong section on the Craigslist site. There was a picture of the little molded fiberglass camper and someone knew someone who was looking.....etc. Spelling matters!
Please let us know if someone would like a little gem - selling the 13' Burro 1983. It is DRY and SOLID with a new floor just installed. The price was just lowered to $2700. It came from Maryland and was a hot mess.....Now a little sweet camper in Virgnia is ready to go. Trying to help sell this, it was listed on this site recently. Maureen
