Hi all! My wife and I came a cross a 08 sunset trail 28 bh. this will be our first camper. We wanted to know any common problems, reviews, what to look for when buying a used camper. any help would be awesome!!
I can't give you a review. But it seems like less people complained about the older ones than the newer ones. Do a thorough inspection. There used to be a PDI list (Pre Delivery inspection) in the documents area. But I can't find it. I'll try to look in my documents on my computer.
One important thing to look for on the exterior are for any areas where skin is wavy or rippled at all. This could be a sign of water intrusion or delamination. One common area is below the marker lights from not being sealed properly. Also bring a ladder and look at the roof to make sure it is in good condition and that the caulking along the edges and around the vents etc is sufficient and in good condition. Good luck and enjoy your new camper.
Be sure they show you the tv antenna booster & how to turn it off/on & how to scan (has to be done every time you move) the tv for both antenna & cable, this stumps every newbie. One other new owners always ask, fresh water & low point drain locations.
