I might be flying out to the Seattle area to pick up a vechicle. I thought of purchasing a used TT < 20' and spending some time in the Pacific Northwest. I went on Craigslist and received a rude awakening. I couldn't beleive the prices on garbage. Stuff that should be in the landfill for 5k and old square frame window trailers. I guess I will see what dealers want for a new small wolf pup if available.

Depending on how much time you'll be spending, why not just rent an RV? Why buy something you're going to have to re-sell after your trip, if that's your intention.

I would drive down the coast to California and did not want to drive back to return it. I figured I could sell it when done with it. I would use motels but would rather check out camping areas. I will see if the trip materializes before I pursue it any further.

If the border was open I would run up to Alaska but don't see that happening.

A alternative would be go to Glacier and drop down to Yellowstone. I will see what a little Wolf pup (or equivalent) sells for and availability.

When you get home and resell the trailer you will probably benefit from high prices on the back end.

Market is hot for trailers (especially used), there's no inventory. Folks can ask what they want.

In the midwest RV'S are less money then out West and used ones seem more plentiful.

Lol, you be suprised at the cost of new also, if you can get one. The reality is stuff is expensive now, especially campers. If you wait a year or so, it will go back to normal, i hope!
