    Found this tonight while surfing Facebook marketplace and might be taking the 2.5+ hour trip on Saturday. What's everyone thoughts on it or experience with one. Thanks!

    Looks to be a damn good shape for a 22-year old camper. Check EVERYTHING! Don't let the shiny new look blind you.

    Honestly, my first thought was scam!

    I've got a couple checklists printed out, so hopefully I don't miss anything. I was able to talk with the owner this morning and he's an older gentleman who is starting to go blind and heartbroken he is having to sell his camper. Trip planned for Saturday to go take a look at it. Hopefully it's as nice in person as it is in the pictures.

    Very nice looking trailer! I would snap that up in a heartbeat as long as there's no rot... A camper like that wouldn't still be for sale around here.

    It looks very nice but the price reflects that. The only thing I don't like about the floor plan is that there is no place to sit except for the dinette

    Our camper is similar, but no slide. They are nice campers, we love camping in ours. The carry out stove has a bracket to hang it on the side, but I don't feel comfortable doing it. We have a folding table we put beside the camper to put the stove and coffee maker on.

    It sold before I was able to look at it unfortunately. Probably why the link doesn't work anymore too.

    Yeah, we found that a deal on a nice PUP doesn't last long.
