Coming from the stick and tin world, I have realized that you encounter a new set of possibilities when switching to the fiberglass molded trailers.
Plan at this point to keep stuffing my trailer fund while continuing to study the possibilities.
I have spent nearly half a century fixing just about everything that breaks or was built with an imperfection.
One thing I know for certain is that every product ever produced has a failure rate... no exceptions.
Another thing is certain as well, there will always be inconsolable customers who will magnify any flaw or failure which occurs.
Like falling in love, you tend to minimize or overlook the flaws in a product to which you are committed.
The fact is... you will buy a flawed product or you will buy no product at all.
Once you choose, make a commitment to your choice to care for it and maintain it. Think of it like the difference between your dream house and a rental property. The dream house will take more of your time and effort to maintain, but you will never know it.
I think Scamp
would be a fine choice but you should get a stack of twenty dollar bills equal to the price of your prospect, stack them on your kitchen table alongside a photo of your favorites, then buy the one that you want more than that stack!
You must love it first to see the perfection emerge!
I have a Mustang convertible which has come of age, it is perfect and performs and looks better than new.... less than a block from my house is a Mustang convertible of the same vintage, sadly sitting, blocking the public sidewalk for several years, hardly worth the fuel it would take to haul it off for scrap. I really hope some teenager will find it and watch the perfection emerge once again....If not, a few of its parts will be scavenged and the balance recycled.
These cars were once peers, emerging perfect from the assembly line perhaps on the same day. The real difference was in the eye and the attitude of the buyers.
