New purchase 2004 Wildcat TT 26FBS

I am quite new to the trailer life. I have made my purchase and am getting ready to pick up the trailer. I want to have it thoroughly inspected before I drive it off the lot. What would you say are the main things to have them check out? Should go to the extent of running the shower? My biggest fear is that there might be some hidden leak somewhere. What can I do to safe against any gotchas?

to the forums! Are you buying it from a dealer? I would insist on a detail inspection including running the shower. There are some PDI (inspection checklist) here on the forum that you can use as a guide. Try searching for pdi in the search option in the green banner.

I wouldn't take anything for granted including the dealer/seller word that something works. It would be better to test it and verify. With it be a pre-owned unit the tanks may not be empty which can make for a non-fun surprise. Take a flashlight.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
