    Skip the Sundowner. That was in the years they were having corrosion problems. That's why you see so many of them for sale.

    In the middle of 1995 is the year Sundowner switched all of thier trailers to aluminum over aluminum.
    That is why it is necessary to check with the manufacturer to see what is the construction of the trailer. You need the vin # and they can tell you for sure.

    I know it's a 2005 model- that would mean it's all aluminum, then?

    This one is newer and it has a steel frame. I thought the way to tell of their frames was the number(777). I also read where their frame problems went up to their 2008 models. Maybe it was their valuelite models.

    The Sundownwer is all aluminum according to the owner, but I ended up not being able to negotiate a price on it. The seller seems to think it's ready to haul today aside from needing a new brake battery, and it's definitely not...

    Well, she's going to be sitting on it for a while if she wants that price. It needs a minimum of $1k in work to be road-ready, not to mention a good power washing (vehicles that sit unused in Oregon grow mildew & moss, her trailer did not escape this)

    I ended up buying a new trailer with fewer frills but that still meets all my needs (even if I didn't get all my wants!)
