    We have a travel trailer aution place down here and would like to know if anyone has info on them and the trailers they sell.. Looked at several today and each one had evidence of what appeared to be a water line inside the trailer.. like they had been in a flood. Some had a water line as high as 6" up the interior wall.. had to look very hard to find it in most cases as they have replaced the carpet, restained the paneling and replaced trim... but, looking inside storage cabinets and such,, you could definitly see the water line... Wouldn"t they need to disclose this to the buyer???? Is there any way to tell where these trailers come from???

    This is their add:::

    The title may show that they are flooded rvs. I would not want to have one. Major problems would crop up later IMO. I saw onelisted in Ga and they told it had been flooded.

    We had a customer the other day bring in a furnace that would not work. We tore it down and found mud inside everything. When we showed him the pictures and the mud, he admitted he knew it had been flooded. Just a small example of what you will find in a flooded trailer.

    Hey Ken, maybe that is what is wrong with the furnace in Rod's RV. Just maybe it is flooded with saltwater & mud from MB. JK ROD.

    Thank you for following up on this.. however.. we saw waterlines in bedrooms, living roms, everywhere.. The outsides of these things look spectacular.. but when you crawl up under them you see rusted pipes and bolts.. even the inside of the tires looked like they had been submerged in mud...
    May have to go back over there and confront ole Jerry and point out some of the waterline areas and see what his explanation is

    like I said he STATED that they were not flooded model, but there are only a few honest sale men, and I know of only one and that is Ken at GTS. I know if I was in the area I would go and look for myself and ask so many questions he would ask me to leave. :laugh:
