What size are you looking for?
Old, newer, brand new?
Did you check your local laws on weights, sizes and tongue weight?
Are electric brakes legal in Holland?
How about the appliances? Some countries do not allow certain propane appliances.
Most likely your voltage is 230V, which means the entire electrical system needs ot be changed to accomodate this, unless youwant to run a huge transformer, like the ones the Army in Europe uses for their 120V washing machines etc.
Let us know what you're looking for.

Verifying Brakes etc.

The only way you can check brakes and other things like that is check it in person. You cannot make a visual inspection of brakes.

You could ask the seller to show pictures of a compass that moves when brakes are applied. Or even better a video of the event.

Gas lines can be verified by video of propane stove in operation and video of thermometer changing temperature as the heater or furnace is running.

A video of the hot water heater flame would probably work.

As for transfomers, they are not that big and you could conceal the transformer under the bed or gaucho couch.

Dont be intimidated, jump in and get an Airstream.

I would recommend a 4 to 6 meter unit for the Netherlands.

You can utilize a free online interpreter if you have a hard time with translation.

I can send you the link, here it is below:

This will translate for you.

Good luck,

Translated to Dutch

Het loodje, de enige manier u kan remmen controleren en andere dingen
als dat is persoonlijk controle het. U kunt een visuele inspectie van
remmen maken niet.

U kon de verkoper vragen om beelden van een kompas te tonen dat zich
beweegt wanneer de remmen worden toegepast. Of zelfs beter een video
van de gebeurtenis.

De gasleidingen kunnen door video van propaanfornuis in verrichting
worden geverifieerd en de video van thermometer veranderende
temperatuur als verwarmer of oven loopt.

Een video van de vlam van de heet waterverwarmer zou waarschijnlijk

Zoals voor transfomers, zijn zij niet dat groot en u de transformator
onder de bed of gaucholaag kon verbergen.

Dont wordt geďntimideerd, springt binnen en krijgt een Luchtstroom.

Ik zou een 4 tot 6 metereenheid voor Nederland adviseren.

U kunt een vrije online tolk gebruiken als u een harde tijd met
vertaling hebt.

Ik kan u de verbinding verzenden, hier is het hieronder:

Dit zal voor u vertalen.

Goed geluk, Smily
