Tips to consider before your purchase

Spend some time in the trailer. Can you reach the cabinets storage or do you need a stool or to get down on the floor? Can you sit in the bathroom with the door shut? Can you dress in the bathroom or is there an easy way to manage an alternative? any of these questions can be answered by spending some time in a trailer and going through how you will do everything you do in the course of a day and night.

Learn about the trailer and seller. With a private sale, learn the seller's profile. Look for a one-owner trailer and get as many details as you can about how they used it, why they're selling, what parts have been replaced? If anything doesn't sound right, be extra cautious or walk away. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Copy down the serial number personally and check police records to be sure it's not stolen.

Check similar ones and see how they age. If you are buying a second hand trailer, try to find one of the same brandmodel about 5-10 years older than you're considering to see how they hold up over time. This will help you decide on whether the brand is durable enough.

Avoid dealerships. If you want the best price, avoid dealerships. They generally polish them up and make them look pretty and almost new but they don't really give a warrant on those used trailers and if they do it is very limited. So you end up paying more but you are no better off than in a private deal.
