Well, it sounds pretty much like the world is your Oyster (LOL).
My personal preference in the medium size range tends towards the BigFoot
trailers from Canada. Here's a link: Bigfoot RV - Truck Campers & Travel Trailers - Recreational Vehicle Manufacturer
The 17 & 17.5 foot are about the same size but the latter is later and a bit heavier. Both are single axle
rigs and I have a permanent search out for one with which to replace my Hunter... There are a number of them in the U.S. and can also be self imported from Canada, but there are a few things you need to know about that before going up there to look/buy.
The larger BigFoots, 19' to 25' have dual axles and are very nice as well. BigFoot
sorts owns the top end in quality (and new, in price as well.) They have a current website and a very few dealers in the U.S.
As far as dealers, All of the major players sell direct, so, except for BigFoot
, you won't find any dealers. However most manufacturers have a referral system where you can look at current owners rigs.
To start looking, search through the links on our home page and also look at <fiberglass-rv-4sale.com>
A couple of tips:
1. Right now is the peak selling season, prices will start to drop in October and bottom out in February. There will be as much as a 50% shift in prices high to low season
2. The northeast is a bit sparse for FGRV's, they will be harder to find up that way than, say on the West Coast or FL.
3. Good ones at a decent price usually sell within a day or three after being advertised. If it's still there in a week, something is wrong with it.
4. As per #1, you may have to travel, even here in CA a 500 mile trip is very common.
5. Beware of Scammers, they abound in the FGRV world, especially on Craigslist. If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is...
6. Never hesitate to post any questions you may have, there are lots of great peeps here that will help out
BTW: Do you live any where near Scituate? My family (Edward Fullers son) built a place there in about 1628!
