I found asking around friends, coworkers etc can pay off. My first TT was a 2002 Layton skyline that was in immaculate shape only two owners and had no issues. Found it though a coworkers camping buddy in conversation one day. The guy sold it to me for 5000 with a cover, all accessories, weight dist. bars, sway bars, etc. Used it for three years and ended up selling it a few months back to another couple that wanted to try out TT camping. Point of story is sometimes just mentioning to people your looking for a TT for a good price can open doors to the perfect solution. Good luck on the hunt!

To me, the most camping rig for the $$ will be a pop-up that is now sitting in someone's garage. They are easy to tow, offer good room, and are really nice when opened up.

Stop at any dealer and in the back or corner they will have their 3k to 6k trailers. Check them out to start learning. If a dealer is asking 6k he may take a low ball offer to get it off his lot.

Good luck

Check out Craigslist for your area. You can find TTs from 16 to 20' in that price range. They'll be older so check them out carefully before buying. Any with stains on the ceiling or softness in the floor should be avoided.
