You might want to post more info, like what condition you can accept, how big the 4 peeps are, what you will be towing with and an approximate budget.

If you want to sleep 2 adults and two teens, a 13' may not work for family harmony.

Also indiocate, in miles from where you are, willing to travel.

The link is to a site that has fiberglass RVs that are listed all over the country and Canada.

Did something happen in 2004 that I don't know about? Remember, these are not stick built trailers. It's more about maintenance than it will ever be about the year build. I've seen absolutely trashed trailers that are 8 years old or so and stellar trailers that are 30 years old.

Good luck on your egg hunt.

You're not being rude, it's just that there aren't that many FGRV's out there and that link is the most populated For Sale source for our trailers.

I have made round trips of over 2000 miles (Los Angeles to Portland, OR) to pick up an FGRV and bring it home. Another member here recently drove over 2400 miles on a 3 day weekend, (RT) to just pick up a shell for an FGRV.

In short, it's usually not easy to find the one you want.

Forgot to mention... My Hunter Compact-II (like almost all Hunters out there) is over 40 years old and it's in near perfect condition.

You're not being rude, but maybe a little but unfamiliar with these trailers and their popularity. Most owners will have no problem selling the trailer you're describing, so they're not likely to need to search for buyers.

Molded Fiberglass trailers are a great value, and people know it. So it's a sellers market with these lovelies, not the other way around. Hopefully, you will get lucky and there is someone in your area looking to sell.

In the meantime, explore around the site and research for your favorite model and brand. You'll find a lot of information here.

Welcome to the group, and happy hunting

Hopefully, you have looked at the marketplace on this site as well?
For Sale: Molded Fiberglass Travel Trailers - Fiberglass RV

After searching for a while, we finally ordered a new trailer (2014) with our own choice of options.

Good luck with your search!

Think you will find you need to keep looking there many more times - those who are serious about making a purchase find they need to check that site and well as most Craigslist sites within several hundred miles of them several times a day....

Fiberglass trailers move/sell fast - or at least the ones that are in good condition with a reasonable price on them.

I am with Donna regarding how old of a trailer you are willing to look at. The condition of the trailer is far more important than the age. Have seen some pretty trashed out Scamps years newer than mine. Due to the fact not much has been changed in regards to the building of Scamps over the years people new to these trailers would have a hard time telling the difference between a 2004 and a well kept 1990's one.

Ben, welcome to the forum. I hear your frustration. Molded fiberglass trailers are a small market. Compared to traditional, stick-framed RVs, there are only a few small manufacturers with low annual output. Designs don't change much either, so people don't trade in every few years to get the "latest and greatest." The supply of used units is limited. I agree with those who suggest not automatically ruling out older units. You are also entering the market at a time when the market is cooling with the weather. Things heat up in the spring and early summer (along with prices, typically).

Keep looking, be patient, and be ready to act quickly when something does come up. Keep checking here, and on fiberglass-rv-4sale.com. The latter is mostly a reposting site, though, so many of their best listings sell locally before they are up even 24 hours. Because of that I would also check Craigslist daily in nearby cities (being cautious as scams are common). And keep your eyes open… I found mine sitting on a side street with a "For Sale" sign about this time two years ago.

Good luck in your "egg hunt."
