I think I put this post in under the wrong catgegory.

I apologize folks, I think I should have posted this here.

Good Morning, surprised to see Sunlines are not listed in your list of Trailers. We currently own one a 1993 - 2460. We have always owned only Sunline trailers, they are built very well. Anyway, we now sadly going to have to sell it for hopefully a newer one that accommodates my wife better with her health issues. We have only bought new Sunlines, never used ones.

My question is: They do not make Sunlines anymore as of 2007. We would still like to own one. We are going to look at a 2004 - 2475 on Saturday. What are the critical things we should look at closely before buying a used travel trailer?

My wife and I went to three shows last winter, and did not fall in love with any of the new trailers they have these days. The fit and finish on a lot of the new ones was horrible. So, we decided to keep our Sunline this season but really need to make a change. The Sunline we are going to look at has all the accommodations that will make traveling more comfortable for my wife, but having not ever bought a used trailer not sure what to look for.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Billy & Ruthie

If you have any way of contacting a RV inspection service that would be your best investment. Let them inspect the unit and I assure you will know all the plus and minus aspects. Usually around 75.00. If not make have the owner hook the unit up to 30amp service and water and sewer and turn on all electrical and plumbing fixtures for a period to insure they work. Check all interior walls and corners for soft spots due to water damage. Last but very important get a ladder and check the roof for cracks in the rubber or poor caulking around all fixtures. I know it seems like a lot to do but better now without having to pull out your wallet for repairs
