Before I started looking for a vintage Trillium
, I spent a lot of time on #1 above and became an "expert" (almost). It helped me avoid two big mistakes! I consider such reading to be "due diligence". There is really no reason in this internet age to be surprised later by common defects. Each brand has their unique ones to look for.
Floor rot tend to be the most serious problem in any FG trailer. Look inside benches, cabinets, back side of refrigerator
(open the outside hatch), etc. I think Burro
also had issues with floor around the wheel wells.
How a trailer has been stored when not in use can be a HUGE factor! When I bought my Trillium
, it had been sitting unused in a garage for the last 20 years. Sure it needed new tires
, and so on, but it also was in very good overall shape. Exposure to the weather for decades can take a huge toll in any trailer, FG or not!
Some trailers, if the floor has fiberglass underneath it, water can be trapped into the floor. Then rot sets in.
