We keep finding tailers listed on criagslist that are within our price range but they are 32' long! Way too big for us. Thanks again for your insight, it is much appreciated.

Yep, in travel trailers size matters in an inverse manner.

In used Airstreams, older rigs under 20' long more often than not sell for twice the price of same year 32' models. In motorhomes 32' 1987-1994 Class "A" rigs often sell for 1/2 to 1/3 the price of same year 18' & 21' Toyota based motorhomes.

And, in those 32' stick-built trailers, problems increase by the square of the increase in length over most FGRV's.

If you get a glass trailer, what ever you get there is always going to be a good resale market for it. Just thinking I might be more inclined to make payments on a nicer trailer and if you take care of it (or improve it) you will loose little or even make money by selling it the end of your trip. Just call it rent. If I were doing an extended trip, I know I wouldn't want a "fixer upper". Last thing I want is a broken down trailer 100 miles from the nearest help.

The OP has blocked PM's and not logged on in 3 weeks. I figure they have left the community.

Duck = Scam

That C/L ad looks, walks and talks like a scam, if it's not, someone has already gotten a steal of a deal.

BTW: It must be a Chinese scam, it has Tong weight.....

I have a 13' scamp that I would be willing to sell. It is in very good shape. Quite basic, but nice. No toilet. Has a cooler, but I also use a dorm fridge. Has a water pump and water storage tank. I also put in a city water hookup last year. Has electrical outlets, and I put in 2 12 volt outlets as well. Has a bike rack, fantastic fan. No heater. Let me know if you are interested. Toni

Hey Meg...I probably have the right egg for y'all. However, I'm down in MS. at the moment. Anyway...mine is a 1995 Casita Spirit Deluxe in good condition. Friends tell me it's in GREAT condition, but a 2013 model is in GREAT condition to my way of thinking. I'll look in my email in the nest few days to see if y'all are interested.
