Hi Kipper, welcome to the TM forum. There are really no issues with any of the TM models. Some of the early models (pre 2002) may have wood wrought framing problems if they weren't cared for properly; however I've seen units that are over 20 years old that are still in very good shape and have many years of camping left in them. On the other hand, there are fairly new units that have been neglected and may need work to make them camp worthy.

My suggestion is to carefully examine any unit that you're interested in. Make sure all of the components work properly. The shells should open and close without extraordinary effort. I'm sure others here will chime in on what to look for, but if you'll spend some time researching this forum's threads you will glean all of the knowledge needed to make a wise purchase. Use the "Search" key at the top of the page to find info on any topic. Lastly if you decide to get a TM, do yourself a favor and become a site sponsor. It will be the best $12 you'll ever spend on your trailer. It will give you full access to this forum and to all of the information you'll ever need.

Good luck in your search

A few months ago we bought a 1994 2720, a few problems mainly needed silicone spray and a little JB weld. We took the Old Gal to Indiana in Sept, and are taking her to FLA later this month. And have towed through the mountains to Western Maryland.

There is very little sway, unless going down the mountain too fast (my fault) with no sway bar or WDH.

mine is wooden framed type, so it is a little heavier, would not think about pulling it with my minivan, it is well over the weight limit for that vehicle, we use a Ford F150.

Absolutely hated the recirculating toilet, changed that to a Thetford Curve porta potty. Added shower curtains and the tub is used for storage, may buy a tote to throw the stuff into so it would be easier to remove from the bathtub, one thing at a time. The shower curtains stay up and hide the "stuff" when the walls are up. Just have to be careful when lowering the walls and move the curtains out of the way.

I bought this for longer trips, as it is a lot of work putting it up and down, but easier towing than a TT, better gas milage and LOTS of room and as the man who helped me with the front roof said last trip out, the bathroom in my 2720 is a usable size, unlike most popups and some TTs.

There is quite a difference between a 1994 camper like Shebantam bought and a 2010 like you are looking at. Anything really old is likely to have issues so it is not fair to compare to a newer model when talking about issues you might have.

Personally I have a 2010. I bought it sight unseen and had it shipped from Colorado to Wisconsin. That being said, RedTail Cruiser had the best advice....check each one in person and make sure things work. It all depends on how it was taken care of.

I love mine and will have it for many many more years.
