Hello, everyone. Iím new to this forum and to fiberglass RVís in general. My wife and I are thinking about purchasing a used RV in the $10-15 K range. We have an SUV with tow rating of 5k lbs. I have been thinking of Scamp or Casita brand maybe 16í but am open to other brand recommendations, how to search, what to look for, what to be aware of, etc...Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you!

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.

Welcome from Missouri. You have picked a good place to start some real experienced people here. You have picked a good trailer line to start with while some of the popular ones are hard to find be patient.

Sort of have one in mind be willing to reconsider if that perfect one comes along! Be willing to go up or down everything can be worked out, check the ads right here also.

best of luck
