Y2k models

I'm a very happy owner of a 2000 Excella and frequently check the classifieds for other trailers of the same age. Mostly just for comparison. I seem to find very few and have wondered if it's because it was a down year for production or that people just hold onto them. Your thoughts?

We have a 2001 still going strong with no intention to modernize.

Thanks for the responses, but once again, where are the 2000 models?

Congratulations. I would suggest you monitor your wheels. Mine developed cracks a year or so back and I had to replace them.

We acquired a 2002 25SS a couple of years ago and have been doing a lot of traveling in it. Recently had the sofa and dinette redone...

We purchased our 2005 Classic 28’ 3 years ago. She’ll be our first and last one. Simple and I can repair as needed.
Perfect size, twin beds, no dinette.

I was just checkin air pressure or adding air and noticed them. They were on two of them but of course I replaced them all. I never noticed anything while towing.

Wow, that could have been an issue especially turning sharp in a gas stop, when the wheels Flex alot.

Thanks for sharing
