Hi all, first time potential camper owner here, and I could use some advice. My wife and I are looking to buy a pop-up camper and one that has come up is a 1992 Jayco 2008 SG. We still have to see it 'in person', but from the photos in the listing it looks very clean and has the features we are looking for. We had been hoping to find something newer but we're wondering if this one might work out for us - the asking price is $1000 but we could probably get it for $750-800. What do you think -- is buying a 25 year old camper asking for trouble? We've heard good things about the build quality of the older Jayco's so we're tempted, even though it's a little elderly ... Would appreciate any opinions - thanks!
