To buy or not to buy

I have been offered a great deal(maybe) on a 2014 White Hawk travel trailer. It is in great shape as far as I can tell. It has been sitting for 2 years due to illness of the owner. He wants 7500 for it which is a steal if everything is okay. Suggestions from my friends out there as to what I should look for. I am going to have a RV tech take a look at it but I wanted advice from all of you because you are where I go when I need help. Thanks and have a blessed day.

You didn't post WHICH Model so here is Jayco White Hawk Info

RV Tech should check FUNCTION of ALL appliances/components AND thoroughly inspect for damage/issues and especially for WATER Intrusion--delamination/mold etc
Also AGE of tires and if OEM (same size as specified on Data Plate)

VIN matches Title

Good luck!

Good Start

Old Biscuit is right.

Since it has sat unused for 2 years it needs ALL scheduled maintenance performed. The Jayco website and owner's manual lists recommended maintenance.

Yes, new battery, tires, and bearings are a good start but, all the tanks need to be flushed/sanitized, seals lubed, roof will need some dicor, and every appliance needs cleaning/inspection.

IF I were to guess, between tires, battery, scheduled maintenance, and at least one surprise, I would plan to spend $1500-2000 to make it road worthy.

Lastly, check out the FMCA membership/roadside assistance. Well worth it.
