New to the board and as of Saturday we'll be new to the RV world with a probably purchase of a Surveyor SP220. Looking for any advice on we should look at prior to pulling the trigger as far as potential problems or defects. Any advice would be welcome! It is a used 2013, apparently bought by an older couple who then traded it back in for something bigger. 'driven to church and the grocery store by a little old lady'.

Thanks!

Welcome and good luck on your purchase!

This thread covers a number of items that are good to inspect prior to signing on the bottom line. Works with both used and new trailers.

This "little old lady" did she live near a Drag strip perchance?

Congratulations! Welcome to the club. Please feel free to stop by the Surveyor forum and tell us all about it! (You can also find some specific things to look for there)
One hint. Prepare to buy a) a new mattress or b) 3 inches of topper for the bed. We went for b. The first night was not good on the back so we headed to Wal-Mart the next day.
