Thanks, rocky! I actually purchased the trailer, it was in superb condition! The folks I purchased it from were the original owners & took excellent care of it. They were so nice, VERY helpful, eager to answer every question/concern, just GREAT folks.
It DOES have the aluminum superstructure! The model is 8314SS. I was REALLY impressed with the roof, compared to all the others I have looked at, this one was by far, the best! Not a single bit of flex or movement when I walked on it. The rubber roofing material is much, MUCH heavier than anything else I have looked at. Not a single bubble, wrinkle, nada!
Everything works perfectly, this thing is SOLID! WOW! Tires are only six months old. The awning material is pretty rough, but, no holes. It'll probably last a season, maybe two. It has the outdoor grill & shower, two entry doors, EXACTLY what I was looking for.
I had/have one concern, the refrigerator. They had just turned it on right before I got there. It has been off since last December. The freezer got cold in a hurry, but not the refidge part. It was starting to just get cold an hour later. there was no way to set the temp, it was all automatic. They told me it does work, it gets ice cold, but will take a while because it hasn't been used. I don't think they are the type of folks to lie, as they were so upfront & open about every little detail, even telling me things I hadn't asked about.
I don't get any bad vibes from them, but, I fear they may be wrong. I'm thinking the fridge is on the way out, and because they have used it so very little the past couple years, just didn't notice & now it's about kapowey!? I sure hope not, those things aren't cheap! Still, for the price I paid for it, even if I have to replace the fridge, i will still be way ahead of the curve.
I am THRILLED with it! It also came with all the towing attachments; anti-sway bars, weight distribution hitch (I do need to buy an electric brake controller, they sold it when they sold the tow vehicle) Also, all the sewer lines are included, and a bunch of other extra stuff...so, yeah, I'm excited & now I can't wait to get to full-timing!
