......................Besides hail , the idea that the inspection I performed didn't detect significant rust on the frame requiring major repairs , or that there was\is a leak that resulted in major fungus growth and rust or rot which would rerquire major bucks to repair . ......................If and when I purchase a used trailer I'm going to full time in IT and I'd rather not spend time repairing it . I have other things to occupy my time . r66

I am getting very afraid that I will no longer find the motivation to go to work to pay for my camping habit. I would much rather be camping in my AS than working...how many years till retirement???
