Yes, I think I would have. I drove 450 miles and paid $2500 for mine and it was pretty trashed with no paper work.

Just an update! Lots of work has been going on with my 16 footer!

Removed both top vents. Replaced with new vents, one just the standard windup, and one with the fantastic fan. They sure were a pain in the rear to get out! The previous owner didnt use rivets and opted for screws with nuts on the inside/bottom and they had to be drilled and grinded and the old vents especially ripped apart piece by piece. But yay! The new ones are in and leak free!

Plumbing- the previous owner had it rigged up to receive water but the "drain" was a PVC pipe that ran straight down to the ground. Don't think the camp would appreciate that! So I replaced all the plumbing at its legit now. Again, with no leaks!

Electrical- trailer lights working nice, pulled out the old crappy 110v power cord and replaced it with a new one. The old one was laughable. The end had been cut off, "wired" in, and had a bunch of tap wrapped around it. Really ghetto rigged. But fixed!

New locks and handle replaced. Cleaned up ridiculous caulk job all over the place. Probably more that I'm forgetting, but its "livable" now! I'm headed to Little Rock on Thursday morning for its maden voyage as my "residence" until December. Certainly more improvements are on the way.
