1998 Skyline Layton

Hi all,
Just joined the group.
We are really considering purchasing a 1998 Layton without a slide.
That's really old, but it looks like almost new. Real wood and glass fixtures and lots of mirrors.
I thought we would wind up with a 2011 JAYCO REAR KITCHEN, but this looks like the one. we are moving up from a popup and the dealer will sell it on consignment. I know we should buy what we like, but is 1998 w/out a slide a good purchase? The dealer will prep it so lt is 100%. I'm not afrais of the age, just thought we would always get a newer model.

Thanks!

Layton makes a good solid trailer. We are very pleased with ours. If it suits your needs (slide or not) and is a good value, go for it!

Age doesn't matter it's all about the condition used trailers esp old are hard to find in good shape with no damage. Give it a good checks over start and the roof check corners vents ac ect. For soft spots checks corner moldings for missing cocking or rusty screws which would mean water once inside check all corners,roof,stove vent,windows,and door frames and floor for soft spots of its in good shape go for it best of luck

Thanks. It snowed here on Friday, so we looked at it yesterday. Snow was melting off the roof.
No leaks, floor is solid, no changes in the plumbing lines, only the corner of the roof molding is loose, but no rust on the screws. Guess the rubber hardened with age. i squeezed it back in the grooves, but it came back out. Duck tape will work.
So, Monday we will give them the deposit. Off to Mt. Rogers in May with the new camper. Now we need to sell the pop up. They want to do a consignment, but I don't know.

Well, we went to look at the Salem and wound up purchasing a 1998 Skyline Layton.
Looks good, and we checked it out thoroughly, so let the dice roll!

How is the skyline Layton trailer working out. I hope everything works out. We just bought a skyline park model. Evergreen now owns the skyline RV division, they just recently purchased it.
