I've never owned a travel trailer before, but am looking to buy one. I looked at a 1995 Sandpiper 32' TT(asking $5400) and have a couple of questions: 1) The trailer weighs approx. 5300 pounds, I have a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer AWD V8. The owners manual says I can tow approx. 6500 pounds. I realize, according to the books, I should be fine, but want to hear anyone else's opinion on wear and tear on the motor/transmission/brakes/etc. 2) The TT had a leak in the roof at one time and was sealed, should I be concerned? or is this something that eventually most TT's will experience? 3) I walked on the roof and it felt pretty solid in most places. It has a rubber roof. However over the shower stall it seemed a bit soft. Is it supposed to be that way, or is that a sign of trouble? This is not where it had leaked previously. Thanks for any advice.
