Ok, so the wife wasn't entirely comfortable with buying from a private party (sigh). So we pulled the trigger on a used trailer from Colonial Airstream. Paid a little more, but we get more in terms of service and relationships. Thanks everyone who opined! We pickup on May 23rd and I am already busy on Google planning the route back! Yay!
