If you are still smitten offer him 17 and be preparted to go to 19,500.
Dont blink and drive away if he refuses. Be sure he has your telephone number and go back to Elgin, and get the ants outa your pants.
time will tell, and if it goes away, there are plenty more out there.

Sure hope you see this before you pay.
I've heard both good & bad bout North Dallas RV.
But if they had anything to do with the trailer, what do you think they are gonna say...?
Certainly not an unbiased opinion..honest or not.
This is REALLY good advice, guys,

i really appreciate all the viewpoints

that is the best thing about this forum...and everything...mostly is taken with a grain of salt...

so...i felt to really get this trailer looked at..to do an honest due diligence...i needed to , like a real estate contract...give this guy some option money...and get it independently checked out and then gather as much info from this forum and any other source i could find......

the way i piece it together...the owner, hired a 30year veteran rv tech...put him on his staff to refurbish this trailer...the pictures look great....he was going to personally use it and then is dear wife said no, no, no......

so io am biding my time and will go look ...long and hard before i pull the trigger....


thanks to all....

randy roland is the guy who is going to check her over...

everything seems above board...the owner is an established business man in the dallas area...he commissioned and hired a 30 year rv tech to do this restoration...

the trailer looks immaculate///tooo good to be true...don't know what else one could do other than what i am doing to check this thing out.....
Carol, I had my trailer at north Dallas rv fir 6 months with the word and promise from Randy Rolland that they would be working on it. Every two weeks i would call, amd every time they said they would be starting ASAP. 6 months,and it never was touched. From looking at the pics (laminate screams cover up), the diamond plate and BBQ on the a frame, and the axle situation along with that HUGE price, I would run...not walk.....run from this. I have owned I streams and have seen how people cover their tracks...don't fall for this.

Do I see... Original furnace inlet/exhaust & original water heater cover ~ may mean neither of them have been updated? Do I see... Lotsa wrap dings, dents and even cuts, plus a surface patch ~ if there was anyone who had peeled them off and back on w/o even flatteningthen not much time was allowed for non-cosmetic repairs? Do I see... streetside segment above the tail light creased and dented? Do I see... everything everyone else already mentioned?

For that kind of money, new wiring - perfect shell sealing and expensive insulation, all glass intact - new plumbing, pump, filters, fixtures, toilet, dump valves - all LED fixtures interior and exterior - Vista view windows repaired - New flooring & subflooring - repaired & upgraded frame in all the hidden places... All new and un-patched rolling Tarnbour doors... Egads, this list could be endless!

And you would still have a Formica & plastic interior mid-seventies trailer.

Phew...this is a HUGE weight off my shoulders as I had BAD feelings about this trailer from the get go!

Keep looking, there is always another trailer.
