While there are no doubt certain attractions to buying new, I think there is a significant saving to be had by buying a few years old and letting someone else take the biggest depreciation hit - assuming you can find a trailer that meets your needs.
When we bought our 2005, it was three years old - we certainly could have payed cash for a brand new one, but (maybe being a cheap b*gger), I felt that to me, it just wasn't worth the extra $$ when we could get a used one that looked almost brand new for about half price.
Three years later I am not sorry with going that route.
We have had a couple of minor repairs to make that would have been covered with a new trailer, and also invested in a new set of tires once the originals were 5 years old, - but that was less that $1k all told.
If you are buying and intend selling again as soon as six months, you might resell a used trailer at virtually what you paid if you buy well.
But depending on your situation, I appreciate that this may not be worth worrying about!
Just a thought! Good luck, I'm sure you will have some great adventures full timing!
I'm afraid I will never get to try it, as my better half, although enjoying our annual snowbird trips for 6-7 weeks does even wish to discuss teh possibility about full-timing!
For my part, I could see myself quite enjoying it for a year or two as a transitional experience at the time of downsizing our home if/when that ever happens - right now we have too much "stuff" and hobbies anyway to think about downsizing!
