It depends

As many buyers have found out, looks are not everything. The condition of the frame, floor and axels are all big ticket items and if these are bad your $2000 will be a small down payment for the trailer. I suggest you search the forums for informaion on checking these key area before you buy.

$2000 is a mighty fine price for that unit, if it all works.
but Another money pit would be the appliances.
The fram, body, floor, axle, ect was good on mine, but I matched the buying price in replacing the hw heater, fridge, plumbing, tires A/C bearings, running lights, 110 & 12V rewiring,& brake pads.
Wow, thats a long list.....

SILVERAVION :: Index and the avioncampingandrestoration group on Yahoo groups are a good source for informaton on these rigs.
