    Yeah I'd prefer a second hand one anyway. I'm not too keen on paying the premium for a new one. Not to mention the fella before normally works out all the kinks and adds a few bits and pieces.

    I am looking forward to opening and closing every door and fridge slide in the joint looking for what I like though haha. Thanks for the advice!

    There are a lot of variations out there with a wide variety of options.
    We are only 2 and that made our choice a bit easier. We didn't need extensions or extra large anything.
    As I lay there looking up, taking in the spectacular view that was the night sky and the multitude of stars I asked myself, where did my tent go?

    About to put an offer on a 2016 ezytrail forward fold later today I think. Looks pretty well decked out and looked after. Had a few hot suppers/corrugations but nothing too extreme. Suspension has some pretty good sand blasting but no big rock crawling gouges.

    I've been over it pretty thoroughly and haven't found anything too alarming, second hand so most bugs have been worked out I think. I'll service the bearings straight up but anyone have anything that I should check before I hand over my hard earned?

    Came with literally everything.. Throw in some food and beer, make the bed and head out.
    See what broken bits I can find in the days to come.

    You will love it. Not much can go wrong with them other than wearable parts.
