Looking at a Zinger

So my last weekend my wife said we should buy a travel trailer. This after 24 years of saying we didn't need one, tent camping is fine. Craigslist brought up several in the area but the ones that caught our eye is the Zinger ZT29DS. So besides introducing myself here, I would like thoughts on this model. There is a 2010 and 2011 available locally.

Oh, since this is an introduction; I am in San Antonio, the far NW side of town. Retired AF, and the wife is retired Navy, but not high enough so we both still have to work to pay the bills. It is just the two of us and maybe a dog and a cat which is why this model appeals to us.

Welcome from NC. I used to own a 2011 zinger 26BL (bunk model). It was a very good trailer for us. We sold it because we wanted to move up to a fifth wheel.

Check it out carefully for signs of leaks... soft spots, pimples on the wallpaper, etc. Check all caulking, slide seals, Windows, marker lights etc. Make sure everything in the trailer works AC, heat, etc.
