I had a Prowler for about 10 years (from mid 80's to mid 90's) and I was quite happy with it. It was relatively light weight and pulled very well. The craftsmanship of it was OK, very similar to other trailers. Mine had an aluminum roof, and toward the end of my ownership I had a water leak at the front corner where roof side wall and front meet. I was able to seal it and had no other problems with the trailer.

Had a 91 Prowler 24M for 15 years. Frig went out after 12 years, but that was expected (dealer friend said 10 was about norm) replaced with a larger new model. Other than that no problems. Wilderness is the next step up from the Prowler. Pulled it Fla several times with a 1500 Chevy 5.7L, about 9 to 10 MPG. I would check the NADA site to get an idea if the price was reasonable.
