2006 Select 12HW
I am currently considering purchasing a 2006 Select 12HW from a private party. This will be our first pop up trailer and I wanted to ask a couple questions. I appreciate any assistance.
The trailer I'm considering has been stored outside since at least 2008, but has been used very little. I did a very thorough inspection today and have some concerns. When the current owner owner opened the trailer, there was a fair amount of condensation on the ceiling. He said that it was the first time opening it in 2 years. Additionally, the linoleum had separated from the floor in a 1x2 foot area directly under where the pullout for the table slides in and out. He said that this had been present since purchasing it in 2008. The structure of the floor felt very solid underneath the bubble in the linoleum and I could find no other signs of potential water damage from inside, outside, or underneath. There has been a significant amount of rain the last month here in the Seattle area. Finally, the tent had about a total of 2 Sq feet of mild mildew on one side.
Otherwise, the trailer is in fantastic condition and shows almost no signs of use on the interior. I asked him to run the sprinkler on it for about 10 min and found that the tent had a small seeping problem on the same side as the mildew on the tent. He is asking $6000 for the trailer, which seems like a good deal compared to the other similar trailers that I have seen.
Does anyone have any experience with any of these issues on similar models? I'd appreciate any suggestions on fixing the seeping in the vinyl canvas. I was considering offering a lower price and purchasing a new canvas for it, which would put my total cost somewhere around $6700.
I'd appreciate any help or insights that you can provide. Thanks!
