Dave, I own a 2011 model and it has been really awsome. When checking it out make sure the slides close all the way flush and open all the way flush. Make sure the awning goes out easily and retracts easily also. Just go over the trailer with a fine tooth comb and check out everything, if there is any questions make sure you get good answers. Make sure they hook up to water and that there are no leaks. Since you are going that far I would agree with what Clutch says and stay at a campground for a few days. Good luck and enjoy Ernie
