I think it's a good decision to skip the local trailer, which looks like it needs a lot of work.

I'd also advise you that the asking price for used trailers (even in the Airforums Classified!) is not necessarily what they will eventually sell for. Be ready to negotiate hard.

I wouldn't tell sellers you're pressed for time or need to be in Colorado by any particular date.

It gets awfully cold in Boulder and everytning in a trailer can freeze and break. Even a crappy studio apartment will be a lot warmer. I know how bad they can be. I visited my son in his apartment in Denver in the winter. But it was 80 degrees in the apartment and -5 degrees downtown and I know which one I preferred, Given that you have essentially no time to work on it I am not sure that any trailer might be too big a gamble.

thanks for all your input, everyone. Much appreciated. Looking for something more complete (I do have a truck... max towing capacity is 6500lbs which is why i'm looking vintage and under 28 feet). Cheers!
