I'm asking the dealer to get me estimates on work like the water heater/furnace
But those jobs I think my friend and I can handle
Has the water system been tested?
So that's why I like going through a dealer. They check and make sure all the systems are going, there is no warranty on it, but I feel much more comfortable that they were willing to sign off on that before it leaves the property
Also there is a 2 hour walk through where they get all the systems up and running and they show me how all the parts work and how to operate them
this also is a big plus going through a dealer as a private seller likely wouldn't spend that much time and doesn't care that there is some lurking issue
Since it's my first, I was comfortable spending a little more to get that 'insurance'
By no means finished but you can see the pics (from the dealer, can't believe I didn't take my own photos)
Unless you want to know that the floor is perfect underfoot, you may go a long time before needing a shell off. These are trailers, not spaceships, so the bar is lower for me on "quality" I'll accept in normal use.
this is totally my philosophy...honestly I'm thinking it's going to stay in one spot for a full year or so as I'm going to use it as a 'hunting cabin' for lack of a better term at this great spot right on the water with tons of privacy
which I've apptly named the Isle of Aeaea
I'm going to name her Circe
