    Check list when buying a used 5th Wheel Toy Hauler?

    Purchasing and being an owner of a Truck camper I know most of the things to look for when buying used.
    IE: Besides the obvious.... dry rot, electrical, appliances, batteries, suspension A/C etc.

    I may be overlooking some important things so I'm building a checklist and appreciate any input.

    Before anything, check tires and wheel bearings. Probably both shot. Not many owners tend to them, IMO. If you're looking at an old Warrior, make sure the walls aren't delaminating. You think your X3 has problems, any Warrior from 05 and up can have this. It hit or miss too. Check the roofs, nobody checks them. Hours on the generator. Stuff like that.

    What trailer make you looking at?

    Looks clean enough. 40'? Triple axle, yikes! I just paid over $600 for 4 trailer tires, LOL! Make sure that at a minimum, the tires are E rated, and check the date code. I just bought G rated, so I'm hoping they last more than 3 seasons. I'm guessing this is a private sale, doesn't look like a lot, well the last pic doesn't, the first couple do?

    The one photo is a stock photo with the truck in the background. It's through a fairly large dealer.
    Yes I always check roofs, floors, walls, gen, A/C, appliances..

    Biggest thing is tires. Check the date code on them. If they are a '17 something, I would be very leery. You're easily looking at $1K, if not more for good rubber, IMO. Stay away from Goodyear tires also, they suck, and always blow out.
