New 2008 Carson FT36?

We're in the market for a toyhauler to haul vintage race cars. We just sold our diesel pusher motorhome, and have a perfectly good Chevy 2500HD truck. We previously had a Weekend Warrior LE3305, so we're very familiar with toyhaulers, etc.

In my looking, I came across a brand new 2008 Carson 36' fifth-wheel unit. It's been sitting on the lot for five years, but obviously unused. Equipped with the options we want, and perfect floorplan for us. Carson is a good SoCal manufacturer, and it comes with their warranty on structure. But the generator is not under warranty, nor is the refer. I'm not too concerned about those, as any 2008 unit would also be totally our of warranty, and if the gen & refer start and work as normal, they're probably ok. The tires are five years old, but not cracked so probably good for a couple more years.

Thoughts / opinions on this deal?

Well if it what your looking for and meets your price point then go for it. I would probably put some new rubber on before any long trip.
