There are several opportunities for you to get a great deal on travel trailers for sale, but most of the time, you don’t get these at the dealerships. If you want to get the best deals, you need to find people motivated to sell their travel trailers quickly.
Some people are skeptical of going to private sellers because they are not sure of the maintenance on the travel trailer, and there is no warranty associated with it. Most of the time dealerships don’t give you a warranty or guarantee any way. Also, if there is something wrong with the travel trailer, you’re more likely to find out from the owner if you know how to ask the right questions.
The best way to find a great deal working with people selling their travel trailers, is to find the people who are most anxious to sell. The way to do this is to go back about a month or two in different classifieds and call on those ads.
Don’t Buy a ‘Fixer’ Travel Trailers for Sale
A lot of people think buying a “fixer” travel trailer for sale, is a good ideal. However, they don’t often consider the time and effort and cost of materials when deciding what they can spend.
Also, people buying fixers often will not do a thorough enough inspection to find out all the problems before they buy. For instance, if there is mold or mildew problems, they may have to take everything out of the trailer down to the shell to get rid of the problem. This can really cost a lot.
Also, if they don’t catch leaks in time, what may have been a good deal, can become a nightmare later, because mold problems will eventually come even if they aren’t a problem now. The other major problem that can pretty much cost your total investment is an unbalanced trailer. This is often shown by uneven wear on the tires. This is a problem that only a shop can fix and only specific shops, because it may need realignment on all the axles, or a weakened or bent axle. The bottom line is, if you are buying a fixer travel trailer, be careful.
