Good luck!!
We traded our '02 Dutch Star 4090 in last Feb. Whoever gets it will be getting a great rig!!
DW wishes we had kept it now as there was nothing wrong with it. I shouldn't have pushed so had to get a "new" rig and really regret it now!

Get a bore scope or inspection camera from harbor freight so you can look behind things.

Bring along the best "nose" you know.

Have a good camera either cell or regular.

The camera has better eyes than we do so you can take photos of tags or other things yiu wish to either see better or wish to note for looking up later.

The nose us to smell for odd things....nuff said there.
