Hello I have never owned an rv before. I plan on buying a travel trailer 21-26 foot with slide out. I am trying to do my homework on buying new or used. From what I have learned it seems used will get me more for my money. I was told that stuff starts breaking after a couple years. I read somewhere that if you buy used, you should have a qualified person go over it with a fine tooth comb to make sure there is no damage and everything works. That makes sense, but how am I suppost to get an RV expert to go with me to look at a used trailer. I went to the local RV dealership and got the whole car salesman bit. I was looking mostly at Fleetwood. I read on an earlier post to try and stay away from Fleetwood and Forest River. Are they considered lower end, or do they have a bad reputation as far as quality. Also, is it a requirement to have a break controller when pulling a trailer. Thank you!
