Looking for 13' Travel Trailer in/near WI

My wife and I are ready to set out on a cross country adventure and are looking for a 13' travel trailer to call home for the two of us and our dog for the next 6-8 months. Both of us are new to the travel trailer scene and looking for something reliable with minimal work to get on the road. Any and all opportunities and/or advice are greatly appreciated.

Kaitlyn and Erik

I strongly suggest looking at several before buying, esp. if you are thinking a 13'er with a front bath, they can get kinds small inside very fast when full timing.

As is always asked so that additional help can be offered:

1. How much of your own work can you do/want to do?
2. What will you be towing with
3. How far can you travel to look/buy
and the biggie
4. What kind of a budget are you working with...

Thanks for the responses. We actually found one and are going to pick it up tonight. I am unsure how to delete the post though.

1. I would say minimal to both.
2. 2013 Subaru Forrester - 4 cylinder
3. Found it about 3 hours from here

Being new to FGRV's I suggest that you be very careful... there are a lot of pits to fall into when buying a used one. A few
1. Refrigerators/// LP refrigerators are, basically not repairable, "needs recharging" isn't possible and new one cost over $800 Have the seller have it operating for at least 4 hours before you see it.
2. Tires age out before wearing out, 6 years is max life, there is a date on the tires sidewall
3. Torsion axles settle, if the trailer is riding low it can't "Be Adjusted", new axles are $$$$$
4. "We never used that" is sellers code for "It doesn't work"
5. Be sure everything works before you pay....

Good Luck

Watch out for soft / rotten floors, rotten hinge pillars (sagging doors), cracked frames, especially where the body meets the frame at the front.
