I can certainly understand that.
I have concerns with the trailer leaving the dealers facility (if it indeed did happen), especially if there is now damage to the trailer somewhere (which you need to inspect carefully for scrapes, dents, tires/wheel damage, and other things that may have occurred in transit to wherever). I would suggest even climbing on the roof to see if everything looks OK.
If it's been sitting there for 8 months, they may try to clean it up to make it appear better than it is. They may have even stooped to the point of pressure washing it, and could have easily damaged caulking/seams. Something else to visually inspect the best you can before taking possession.
It sounds like this dealer would easily try to pass the buck once you take possession of the trailer again, and say he isn't responsible for any damage incurred.
If they try to rush you in your inspection.......I would take this as a bad sign and slow down to look even harder. Digital cameras or phone cameras are your friends. You can take all kind of pics to document things you may see while the trailer is still at the dealership.......in case it does end up in litigation.
You may even want to record all your conversations from here on out, but will need to know your states laws covering this.
I hate to hear about this happening to you.
