Classifieds for Used Travel Trailers

For many of today's RVers, used travel trailers can be the ideal choice. While prices for new trailers can start at seven or eight thousand dollars, many are in the thirty to forty thousand dollar range and some are higher. If you don't mind buying a unit that is a few years old, you can enjoy the same style of travel and save a lot of money in the process.

A well maintained used travel trailer can be serviceable for many years. And remember, condition can often depend on how often the trailer is used, not necessarily on how old it is. A ten year old unit that was used only occasionally may be in better condition that a 5 year old trailer that was on the road every weekend with a full family. If you can't view the trailer yourself, ask the owner a few questions about its past use and make sure you have a chance to look at some good quality pictures.

Make sure you take the time to look around and browse as many ads for used travel trailers as possible. Keep in mind your needs. How many people do you need to sleep? Will you be cooking most of your meals in it? How important is the size of the sink, fridge or bathroom? Do you like to travel light or do you need lots of storage space? If you need some of the latest conveniences such as the ability to connect to the internet, you will need consider purchasing a newer unit.

If you're unsure whether a travel trailer is right for you, why not consider renting a travel trailer first. This can help you decide what size is right, what features are most desirable, and whether a new or used unit would be best for your needs. Years of enjoyment can follow the purchase of the right RV for your needs, so take your time and shop around.
