New, need help

Looking at purchasing a 29' 1989 Terry Resort Series travel trailer. Owned by friend who pulled it 16 times (each summer) to Myrtle Beach (about 500 miles round trip). Asking price $2500.00 which includes mirrors, stabilizer, etc. Price ok, what to look for, etc? Any helpful hints/info would be appreciated.

Soft spots for starters. Knock on all the walls and inside cabinets. If it's soft, it'll need work.

Dry rot. :( Check the roof out. The rubber roof (if it has one) may be getting old, however, for $2500 it should give you a couple more years use.

Make sure you replace the tires if they are original equipment or over 6 years old. They may look good, but the rubber will be rotted from the sun and acidic atmosphere. BLOWOUTSVILLE :dead:
