Corrosion/Deterioration... What do I look for?
I'm posting this new thread in hopes someone can help me out, or point me in the right direction to get an answer to my question.
I'm currently in the process of making a decision in purchasing a 1999 Sundowner Valulite 3horse slant gooseneck. After reviewing all the horror stories about this trailer, I'm a bit sceptical. This trailer is in excellent condition inside, and just a bit of corrosion in the rear door area. I had the trailer looked over by a professional, who pointed out the corrosion, but said it wasn't bad at all, and considered it normal wear. Before I lay down any cash, does anyone have any pictures (older post don't show) that I could compare to. What does a good used trailer look like underneath, as oppose to what looks bad. I'm not familar with steel frames, and aluminum siding.
I currently pull a steel trailer, and looked underneath it. There is rust, but not falling apart. I guess it would be considered normal... Hope someone can help me soon, before the final decision is made!!!
