at the very least MORE of the trailer is shown, including minor issues.
so from a purely "looking at pictures" perspective that is a good thing.
it looks like the tires/wheels may be LARGER than the originals...
the pull out sofa/bed in these years is basically a hinged aluminum panel with padding.
it actually works better as a bed than sofa, because they are SO hard and have only one back angle...
i had one for 20 years, and could never get comfortable on the sofa except laying down.
that sofa and side table come out very quickly and can be replaced with a "custom wrap" easily.
as u can see from the shot into the shower these stalls have a lot of pieces and potential for leaks onto the subfloor.
that area isn't easy to inspect for long term issues.
the shower CAN be sealed up well IF the pan isn't cracked.
the glass all looks good as do the awnings we can see.
while one can tell BAD axles from pics (based on height) that doesn't mean normal height axles are good.
the rubber can still be hard and not suitable for much travel, even if not SAGGING in pix.
the shell appears free of major bumps and bruises.
photo shopping can only take one so far.
every trailer inspected IN PERSON is a learning experience.
even when the unit isn't really the one wanted.
so take a flashlight and ice pic, poke around in the flooring (in those bed storage areas and under the lav sink)...
turn everything ON and OFF, stand in the shower sit on the crapper and flop on the bed and sofa....
the cost of looking in person is your fuel money and time, while the price of buying the wrong unit is MUCH greater.
