You describe the two of you nicely, hope someday to run into you at a meet or somewhere! If you come down this way, feel free to contact us and come see the shell of our 73 amerigo
, still under reconstruction in our driveway near Renton, about 15 miles south of Kirkland and that Campster
When you say "Indian," you mean from India? Not "Indian" as we used to call our Native Americans?
Welcome to the FGRV, many of us come here without a camper/rig/trailer, and then over time find something and go from there.
I suggest you find the "buyer's checklist" on this site (if you'll go to "search" and go to the very bottom and type it in, it should help lead you to it--print it out and be SURE to take it with you whenever you look at a used rig.
Something that needs to be or is GUTTED shouldn't be considered "camp-worthy" and should go for about 1/10 the price of a ready rig.
We have a tendency, we glass-lovers, to fall
in love with these eggs, and make sacrifices for them.
Just try not to sacrifce too much. While rare, they are out there--and you
have many used rigs up there in Canada, if you'll check with Craigslist every day sooner or later you'll start to see them popping up.
My very best to you and your wife! (How do you pronounce your name?
Hope you take it SLOW and are cautious...it's easier by far to buy a used rig than to fix one that needs a lot...
And when you find your egg, many wishes for great enjoyment!
