I'm getting ready to purchase my first A/S. I've been a fly on the wall of this site for almost a yr now.
What great advice and a great community. I feel like I can purchase with confidence, just from what I've learned here. I'm going vintage, so I know there will be lots of surprises too, but I am ready.
I just looked at a 1964
19-ft Globetrotter. I know, I am holding my breath that I get it. But as I was inspecting the underside I saw something I have never heard mentioned before.
There were two "stabilizers", one next to each tire, bolted to the axle. They do not flip up, so they were permanently down and have a "foot" on them. The trailer was sitting in dirt and the tires a bit low, so they were touching the ground. But the seller said when traveling, they were several inches off the ground. He said they were in case you got a flat tire.
