Is it a concern?
I would always include a look under the unit to see if there is salt damage or road damage that is visible. But what do readers otherwise have to say?
There are a few differences in the method of construction, but nothing that has any major effect, other than the labor costs of manufacturing.
Be careful of any torsion axle equipped trailer, if it has been parked for a couple of years or more.
The rubber rods in the axles must be exercised or, they can soften or solidify, in either case, making it necessary to replace the axles.
The new exterior finish, is much longer lasting than those in the 90's.
