Thanks for responding, Locky
It’s a 2001 Wildwood .
I’ll post pics of the tag.
I can see the model # but I can’t find that number anywhere on line.
The guy wants 5k I just wonder if it’s worth it.
It’s in pretty rough diaries as far as I can tell; but I know nothing.

I wouldn't pay $5k for that. I sold my 2007 25' HTT for $8k just a couple of years ago and it was in nearly perfect shape.

Run its clear that unit was not taken care of nor maintained. Water will kill a camper from lack of maintanance. I agree with others one can be had for a little more money and in far better shape.

The faster you can run from that, the better! Any TT you look at that looks like that, RUN!

Please DO NOT pay $5000 for that camper. Run away from that as fast as you can.

I would agree 5K is worth it IF you plan on gutting and doing your own floor plan. Other than that the trl appears to be very rough

If you are looking for a trailer, first start looking at rv dealers. You'll get an idea of what a trailer sells for and get an idea of what to look for. Then if there is a consignment dealer, take a walk through their lot. Don't buy yet.....

When you find one you like, look on rvtrader.com to get an idea of price and what's available in your area.

One thing you DO NOT want to do is buy a trailer with water damage. It's very expensive to repair and you might never get rid of the mold/mildew smell. Also, if you're buying a used one, you'll probably have to buy new tires, so factor that into your offer.

Good luck.

I just checked your areas Craigslist and really didn't see anything that I would recommend you buying in the $5000 and under price range. This time of year though you do not get the best selection to choose from. You might want to even check Craiglists ads from a few hours away from you. I can bet that trailer you showed pictures of is full of water damage and mold. I wouldn't take it even if it was for free.

Just to pile on. I wouldn't give him $500 for that thing.

Be patient and keep looking. You'll find something in pretty good shape and for less money before long.

It will cost that person money to have it hauled away. Keep looking.
