Welcome and good luck. Take your time and thoroughly inspect any trailer you are considering. If you go to the Documents Center under the More tab, there is a Buyers checklist and brand-specific documents showing what to look out for. If there is one you think you are going to buy, ask the owner about down payments and bring cash. They go quickly. Each brand has it's own set of problems and you certainly can find out about them here. Take your time, if you have any doubts don'e buy it. Also, determine how much work you are willing to do to get whatever you buy minimally ready to camp in. Most if not all of these trailers use a torsion-based axle
. If the axle
is 20 years old or more, factor the cost of replacing it in with what you are willing to pay.
