Live in VA, consider purchasing AS in Missouri

Are there any qualified dealer/individuals that a person can pay to go check out an AS in another state. Everything about the AS in the ad looks wonderful, very nice and appears to be in great condition, however; how does a person know for sure without looking at it or having someone else (dealer) inspect it? Am I just out of luck?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Click the Portal tab at the top off the page. Scroll down looking at the righthand side to find the Inspector Search window. This will give you a list of members who have volunteered to inspect trailers for others. This service is typically free but you could offer to pay expenses.

I live in eastern VA - and I have bought a trailer in Albuquerque and my present one from a seller in east Texas. I was happy with both purchases.

I think the important thing is to know what you are looking for, and how to talk with the seller. In both cases, i felt confident that we understood each other and the deal was made. My position was, if the trailer is as you described it, then i will pay your price. The next thing was to get assurance that the trailer wouldn't be sold while I was enroute. Both cases were handled as if they were between friends.

One advantage was that I used the classified service here. I've bought and sold two trailers using the Forums classifieds, plus I just bought a truck here.

But you must be an informed buyer. If you are inexperienced, you would be better off buying from a dealer where you can expect some support.

Good luck. Pat
