Canadian Sandy Burns recently bought her second RV, a brand new CrossRoads Sunset Trail fifth wheel trailer. Although she was excited to start camping in it, she knew that before signing on the dotted line and towing it away, she should inspect the trailer first.
When you buy a new or used RV, it’s important to verify everything is in good working order.
You don’t want to end up with a lemon. Although there’s no certainty that you’ll catch everything that could be wrong, a mediocre inspection is better than none at all. As fellow Canadian Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
The reason I did this video was to point out that even brand new trailers should be inspected thoroughly because there could be something wrong (you can’t assume that because it’s new, there are no problems).
Checklists are great, and visual checklists are even better. It was helpful to actually see what you should be looking for around the rig. Thanks for the confidence boost, Sandy!
