I suspect trailer prices closer to Alberta will drop due to Alberta's struggling economy. Someone willing to make a road trip may be able to find some deals this summer.
: I would buy it but only after I had gone over it thoroughly with a fine tooth comb. Every thing has to be 100% before I buy anything these days or I just walk away, it's real easy to walk away from a trailer that they are asking a lot of money for it but turns out to be crap.
But to wash and paint
the outside of a trailer is nothing, if the rest is good.
Even our 26' Class A MH needed TLC and after buying it we put $$$ into it, new tires
were one of the main items, some others needed minor fixes we did those our selves but the only problem in the early Years of Class A was the Aluminum Block that the Ford V10's have was 3 plugs did not have enough threads to hold them in place, so Far only 1 has blown out and we ended up in Lincoln, Nebraska and as we belong to Good Sam we had it fixed in 24 hours and that included towing.
Some of the things that go wrong you cannot know about in advance but one should be ready for them like belonging to Good Sam, BCAA, and other outfits that offer similar roadside repairs.
