Riverside trailer

Been thinking of purchasing a 2012 model that the owner used one night, and has been sitting ever since. We have agreed on a fantastic price, too hard to pass up. Not sure about the brand, should I have any worries, before I sign papers to purchase? It's a 27 foot bunk house, and the weights are fine for my ecoboost ford truck.

Glad you're aboard. If you want to be sure have a RVIA certified tech check it over for any needed repairs. Best of luck in your decision. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.

Does it say "Riverside" on the front or side? All the paperwork should be in the trailer. Tires could be an issue. I would ask the seller if he/she would fill the grey and black tanks with water then take them to a dump station and check for odors. And as Diesel said have it checked over. 2 years is a long time to just set.

Riverside trailer

Riverside is on the front. A dealer is selling on consignment, I'm going to look at it tomorrow,,Saturday. Aren't tires good for at least 5 years, trailers do mostly "sit"?

Sidewalls get weather checked. Tires last longer when they can go roundy round every once in while. Riverside is the maker. Any model #s anywhere?
