The price doesn't look too bad and I don't see anything that screams scam. Just need to check it out thoroughly to make sure it is worth the asking price...maybe take someone with you if you know someone locally who is familiar with these trailers.

The area code of the contact number is for Oklahoma so it may not be in the Dallas area

Looks OK in the pictures.
Interesting A/C installation, but, where I live A/C is not really an essential.
Definitely newer than mine, since it has louvred windows (front and back) plus the front window guard, that is not installed mine.

I just purchased this trailer from a nice lady in OK. I'm a newbie at RVing and fiberglass trailers. Can anyone tell me how to care for the fiberglass and make it shiny again? Thanks.

Making it Shiny again

Hi Rhinehart, first of all congrats on your purchase, your trailer looks like it's in Excellent Condition! I recently purchased one myself and found the best way to make it shiny again is to give it a wash, then use an electric polisher/buffer and apply marine compound to remove all the oxidation. Then apply a couple or more coats of Marine Wax, I used Meguiar's Marine and RV cleaner wax and 3M
Marine rubbing compound. I did one section at a time and was amazed that it actually started to shine again! I doubt my trailer was ever waxed since it was new but I could be wrong. It's a time consuming process but the results are well worth the hard work!
