I didn’t catch that you bought it already damaged.
Add more info about the damage and what you saw or inspected prior to purchase (if you even inspected it).
Also he knowledgeable about what you signed at purchase time.

However, there is a very slim chance that you didn’t buy it “as is.” And an even slimmer chance that anything will be covered by either the dealer or your insurance (0% chance for pre existing damage with insurance).

But on the upside, the nightmare may just be a dishonest dealer and that’s an easy fix if the trailer isn’t all screwed up.

Did you buy the rig before or after the hail damage?

Did you negotiate the 19k sale price with the dealer 'fixing' the said damage on their dime before you gave them all of your money on it?

If you knew about the damage at the time of sale, why did you agree to such a high price for it?

How long ago did the damage happen?

I know I'm being an ass here... But, with only the info you provided, these are the questions that popped into my head as I was reading it..

Good luck! Mitch

I seriously considered buying a hail damaged new trailer. Dealer had it appropriately priced at about 30% MSRP. If I'd had a truck at the time, it would have come home with us. It was all cosmetic damage with the side of the trailer looking the worst of the damage.

30% off is normal for any trailer without damage.

I think you need to have a talk with the dealer. Was all the damage disclosed at the time of sale, or did they say it only needed then3 things?

He did not say "30% off". He said "30% of MSRP".

When I read it he said he purchased the trailer after the hail storm. I would talk to the dealer about what else he is going to fix.

You really didn't give us ALL of the details.
When you bought the damaged TT, did you ASK the dealer for a quote to repair?
Did you take the TT off the lot or not?
What does your contract say re the damages?

Please tell us the rest of the facts.

Free advice is exactly that--free. I would contact my friendly attorney and pay for an hour of their time.

Most commercial contracts require 4 things:
1. Offer
2. Acceptance
3. Consideration
4. Delivery

If you did not take delivery, then the contract may not be complete.

Sorry, I miss typed. it was 30% of MSRP, so, 70% off... which kind of points to the profit margin.
