Thanks, Colin. The location was a big red flag for me, and we're not ready to buy now anyway, but that one made a good example.
What has prompted my reappearance here is finding out that Foretravel used a proprietary shaft in an otherwise standard hydraulic pump, and that has left us parked for two weeks. If it hadn't been for a mechanic friend we would have had to wait until March (!) for a replacement. I wondered if Airstream does something similar.
