When I owned a 1983 trailer (2009-2015), I got involved with a Vintage RV group. I've found the issues of owning an older RV are a bit different than owning a new one.
A quick Google search turned up some interesting stuff.
Just remember on an older unit, condition is everything! Check the floors and all mechanical systems. It looked like there was a popup section of roof on the TT version.
If you, like me, enjoy repairing your TT as much as using it for camping, go for it!
If you'd rather just park it and clean it between outings, find something under 5 years old.
Edit; Oops, phrased for a newbie. Looked back and saw who you were, sorry.
