I've Been Looking For A Tm And The 3124 King Seems To Fit My Family. They Don't Care For Tent Camping Too Much. So, This Will Be A Great Change. However, So Many Questions. By The Way, This Is A Great Site! Are There Any Concerns With This Model. I Plan To Store This Outside With A Cover Once I Find One. The Tm Is Much Bigger Than My Garage. Has Anyone Had Any Problems With Condensation Or Leaks For Storing Outdoors? Also, I'm Looking For A Preowned Because Of $$$. Any Concerns Of Buying Second Hand? Thanks So Much For Your Responses...the "green" Camper..

We bought NEW this year and are really enjoying it. THey are magnificantly engineered. Be sure to check all the screws frequently -- they can shake loose on bumpy roads. I would not hesitate to buy a used TM given the experience I have had with this one. However, we bought a new one just becuase...

We had the good intentions of storing our TM in the garage; it has not made it there yet and is still sitting in our driveway (sans cover) when not in use. We bought new, and it is now just over 2 years old; no leaks and only a bit of mold I need to wipe off one of the roof vents. Sun fade on some parts of the TM is the only thing I have noticed.

I've washed the TM in both the up and down positions, and the only leaks I've had are when I spray the hose in directions rain is not supposed to go. I'd suspect some of the silicon caulk seals will give way before the basic shell seals do. A site search on "leaks" or like should give you more info.
