No matter what brand you are considering, the most important thing on any RV is the condition of the roof. Check it carefully for cracks and any signs of leakage. A leaking roof will cause mold and wood rot problems that will extend all the way down into your sub floor.

Before purchasing ANY RV do a very thorough PDI (pre-delivery inspection), on a used unit you will need to determine if something isn't the way it should be, to either negotiate a better price or walk away. With a new trailer you have the option of having the dealer make the repairs, choosing a different unit or walking away.

A good PDI will take 2-3 hours minimum.

Here is a link to a good checklist.

There is madness to my methods
