Are we talking $5k, 10k? 20k?
A good first question might be:
Would you accept this trailer as a free gift, as she sits right now, not knowing for sure whether she leaks like a sieve in really windy monsoonal storm conditions?
Wind-driven rain can easily run uphill, so every seam would have to be as fresh as factory-new IMO, or else the answer to the gift is "no."
Good luck, hope you will keep us posted!
