Need help finding a travel trailer to buy

I am going to the oil fields to work for an extended time. I was looking at getting a travel trailer. Does anyone know where you can lease purchase, take over payments, or owner finance a travel trailer? I don't have much down about 2-3k. n Any help would be greatly appreciated.

2-3k down can put you in a decent mid sized trailer if you don't mind payments for about 10 years.

2-3K could put you into an older TT 18-20ft. You have to look around though because there are a lot of junkers out there, SEE my recent post "Bottom feeding in the TT world". Look in to Craigslist.

I bought a very useable/ livable TT off CL for $5K last year. I've put less than $500 in it to get it up to snuff.

Don't buy new. I'm convinced every RV is made cheap and grossly overpriced. Let someone else take the depreciation.

Oh, and go to PPL motohomes dot com for parts.

We always use Craigslist but you have to be careful no matter where you get a used unit. Many out there are rotted out internally and the shrewd dishonest sellers know how to hide that fact. Take someone with you who knows RVs if that's possible.
