To me, other than inspection, the other thing I look for is how has the trailer been stored when not in use. Sun and weather can age a trailer quickly. I’ll never forget meeting a fellow Escape
19 owner who’s trailer was newer than mine. He asked about my secret polishing technique. I told him I had never polished it, just washed the exterior a couple of times a year plus after big trips. Then I saw his. Really dull, no shine at all, lots of signs of weathering. Then it hit me: “how are you storing your trailer?”. “It’s a camper, it sits outside.” Bingo, mine is stored in a dedicated carport, and my trillium
is inside my garage. Both of my trailers were bought from owners that stored them in garages. I bought a Casita
in the past that was always stored outdoors. It showed its age!
I’ve never seen the trailer for sale
so I can’t comment on its condition, nor argue the point. As far as price it’s all the options. I know my Escape
has over $6000 in options. And some buyers will pay a premium to not have to wait a year or more. At my age, missing a year of camping could be priceless.
