So it went well, we put a down payment on it and will be picking it up sometime next week! I have no clue why the price was so cheap. There was nothing wrong with it at all..besides needing new tires and rims which isn't a big deal.

Oh, and its not at 03...she made a mistake. It's really an 04. Around here I was looking at the same model trailer and it was going for $7,000+.

Glad it worked out for you. Why do the rims need replacing?

Well, they don't need replacing but I would like to replace them anyway.

Just my two cents, you could sand them and spray paint them if you wanted to save a chunk of money.

If you like the rims but they are just rusty/pain peeling find someone that does auto body painting.

I am going to take the wheels off the trailer when I go home for thanksgiving for my buddy to repaint.

He said it's super easy if you know someone that does custom duct-work. You can get a piece of tin cut to fit the rim so you can sandblast and paint on the rim without removing tires.

If you go with a new set though I would be 1/2 tempted to save the old ones w/ the old tires and swap out for winter time so the new tires don't get flat spots and dry rot on them

So just kidding! I found out why it was so low in price.

There's a $2,000 lein on it and the trailers in her husbands name. Whom she divorced but swares was given to her in the divorce papers. Waaaay too sketchy for my liking. People are so stupid. All I had to do was look at the title and see the lein on it. God, some people just like to play you for stupid I guess!

Oh, and she said she must have forgotten to write about the Lein in the ad. Really????

You saw the trailer and like it, track down the husband and give him a call.

Could seriously be worth your time, heck offer him a bit less even.

Meet him at the bank to pay off his lein, call the local sheriff so they know whats going on when the trailer comes up "missing" or maybe ask for an escort to the farm.

The bank would be much happier, the husband would be happier (out from under that 2K and also up say another 2K), and you would get a heck of a deal

Well the lady started gettin a tad nasty when we were iffy about purchasing it after we found out about the Lein. She never told us about it and is expecting us to fork out the money for it.

I have a 89 Trail-et and I love love my trailer. Its in great shape, Mines a fiberglass roof, aluminum skin and a steel frame. Super Nice trailer. The only thing I would change is I wish it had a dressing room.
