We haven't bought a trailer, yet, but I like the idea of having a fiberglass roof versus the vinyl roofing you see on conventional trailers.
I'm assuming, and correct me if I am wrong, that a trailer such as a Casita
is not very susceptible to roof leaks
. Are there any problems with fiberglass trailer roofs other than penetrations around roof mounted equipment such as fans, vents, skylights, antennae, etc? Again I am assuming that these generally seal off pretty well. If I buy a 7-8 year-old Casita
, should the roof be a problem?
This is probably my biggest concern buying used.
I can buy used for $11k-$14k, or new for around $20k.
Is the extra $6k-$10k savings worth not having a warranty, that lovely new trailer smell, and having to most likely deal with a small repair or two?
Money is not a problem, but we could do a lot of traveling on $6k worth of gasoline.
