Buying Used Camper Trailers

used camper trailersBuying used camper trailers can be a great way to save money.  If you are thinking about purchasing a camper trailer, why not consider a used one?

There a many advantages to buying used camper trailers.  You can find them on the internet, in the newspaper or just driving down the road.  Since camper trailers aren’t usually used full time, they stay in pretty good shape if the owners take care of them.  That means that you can probably find really nice used camper trailers for a lot less money than buying one new.  However, this may require a little bit of shopping around.

Pictures of used camper trailers can be very deceiving.  If you see a picture on the internet, call and talk to the seller before you go to look at it.  Ask as many questions as possible to save yourself an unnecessary trip to look at used camper trailers that just don’t qualify.  Beware of any used camper trailers that are over 30 years old.  That doesn’t mean that you won’t find a nice one every now and then but they are usually a lot more work than they are worth.  Even if you are getting it for near to nothing, you are better off spending a little bit more money on newer used camper trailers.
When you inspect used camper trailers, it is generally very obvious whether the camper has been well cared for or not.  Make sure that there are no leaks in the ceiling, broken glass, cracked or leaking plumbing or rotten wood.  Excessively dirty carpet and upholstery is normally a sign that the camper was not well cared for. You can expect to have to do some general clean up in the camper but all in all, when you go to look at used camper trailers, they should be clean and the owner should be happy to show you that all appliances are in working order.  It would be nice if you can find a used camper trailer where the seller can give you the maintenance records.  The more information that you can get, the better.

Used camper trailers can be a real deal.  Watch the local classified ads, when a good one is posted, they normally sell quickly!
