We are going to look at the better one this weekend for sure (with the checklist). The post had been up for a couple of weeks and he said several people had looked at it but no takers.
Working as a Real Estate coordinator while in college, I completely get the "market value". Our motto was a house is worth what a buyer will pay for it. So after several showings and no offers it was time to reduce the price. The opportunity cost is definitely a factor and I hope that we get a reasonable deal. We are willing to put the effort and money into the trailer to make it ours and at the end of the day this is the goal. We are so glad to have you guys to learn from! I will keep you posted on the outcome.

Any thoughts on that 13 panel?

Neil and Shelly

If you are going to move the bath to the mid part of your rig you are going to be tearing it apart. It all depends how serious you are about that. Here is a great thred on that:
I am in the beginning stages of a complete renno. Make sure all of the systems are in place and that the running gear are in place (axles, wheels). They are the cause of a lot of damage to your rig. If I were going to move the bath I would be looking for a PROJECT! Dont pay more than $3000 on something like that. Oh and plan on spending a lot of time on these forums they will be your best friend. Good Luck! Welcome!!

We purchased the better one!

Hi everyone.

Neil and I went up to Bogart, GA to check out the 74 Overlander (the better one). It was everything the PO said it was, no surprises. We settled on 5500 and drove away with our new AS!!!

The rear bath was better than I expected...roomy! We are very happy with our purchase and are learning the ropes this week!

The forum has been a great help! We will be regulars for sure!

We can't wait to get it on the road and meet everyone.

I liked the pictures of that one. If it's as decent as it looks I bet you'll be happy with it. Best of luck.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
