Look at it this way, you now have a good start in your FGRV education.
1. 76 or 78 is a wash, FGRV's, for the most part aren't that year sensitive. it's all about condition, condition and condition.
2. They probably raised the price because they were getting so many unexpected calls.
3. Next time, before going, be sure to ask if the appliances can all be demonstrated and ask to have the refrigerator
turned on at least 4 hours before you get there.
usually occur around the window frame edges and at other openings, such as roof hatches and where pipes might go through the hull.
5. In CA, a PTI trailer may have only a virtual (?) title
. If they don't have a paper title (you have to ask for it when you get PTI plates) and the registration is not in the sellers name, walk away.
And YES you may have to kiss a look of frogs before you find your prince of an FGRV.
Here in CA, good FGRV's, and/or under-priced FGRV's, sell in a NY minute. If it's still for sale
after 3-4 days, it's usually neither.
When looking, I check Craigs list, findanyrv.com and fiberglass-rv-4sale.com 3-4 times a day.
