Ha...I was waiting for Bob to come back and comment.  He and I went to an RV show together back in 2011 in Nashville, and I bought our last trailer at that show.  Actually got a really good deal, so your brother might be pretty smart!  

I think he actually did get a good deal both times.  🙂

We've never bought one at a show but I have found the dealers around here will still honor RV show prices and negotiate from them for a period of time after the show has ended.

Here too.

We have bought twice while attending the Hershey RV Show, well we actually ordered the units at " show price " the reason we did it there was to see the floor plan we wanted plus that is a factory sponsored show so usually they get the factory to kick in another amount off usually towards the end of bargaining as a final push.

Gosh only 8 years...... it's just getting broke in good...... (says the person with a 12yo camper, and no plans to change any time soon).

Yeah well there's a pretty good chance this one may see 9 years so...

DH is disappointed that the Keystone Premier he found that he really liked was a little out of the budget.  We're still looking, but in the meantime I've been informed that we're getting a new hitch because, "if I have to keep towing this thing..."

Funny story... I'm the one that almost always drives when we're towing and I think it tows just fine.  ;)

Just as long as he does not want the Hensley, great hitch but could cost as much as a used camper

We've been happy with our Winnebago Micro Minnie. It is 7 ft wide and several models have slides. If you want a standard width trailer the Minnie line is the same build and finish quality. In particular their customer service has been very helpful sending me drawings without question of the sidewall and slide construction for adding a topper. The also rejected one warranty repair but when I called them to explain what was going on they approved it and expedited the parts to my dealer. Both the number of initial problems, how they were handled and materials used are leaps and bounds above what we had with our old Palomino product (same dealer for service). 

The Micro Minnies look like really nice trailers.  There is a lot to be said for the 7' width.  I have a 21' Camplite which is 7' wide and I love it.  Great visibility down the sides from the truck, really easy maneuvering to get gas, easy to back into a site and more.  My standard mirrors on the truck are more than sufficient and the slide gives us plenty of room inside.

Hmm... not my department so I'm not sure, but I've been told he found a great deal on it and can probably sell the one we have for what the new one will cost.  That works for me!  🙂

Once you find the brand and floorplan you want try one of the online wholesalers such as:

I think we looked at one at the dealer.  Wasn't the floorplan for us but I did like it overall. We'll have to poke around their site more, thanks.

"Great visibility down the sides from the truck, really easy maneuvering to get gas, easy to back into a site and more."

All things we don't have now - lol. I think our Open Range is as wide as they get, which is great when you're inside, especially since the slides are deep, but it does make getting gas a challenge.

If you can get the Hensley at a good price I would jump on it plus remember you can keep moving it to your next trailer so you always have it. If I was to go back to a TT I would get one as it is probably the best you can get, I am not sure but I think they even offer a service to recondition older ones but would check on that.
