Your Sienna will be fine as long as you don't overload the tv or TM. I pulled very nicely for years with my 2000 Honda Ody.

If u get serious about this unit on CList spend time with it. Do not be in a hurry. I'd spend at least an hour inspecting it from top to bottom.
Search this forum for the many suggestions as to what to look for.
IF the seller pushes you or wants you to be in a hurry, then take a pass on it. If you were to agree to buy it "as is" I would only do so if you could buy it VERY much at a discount.
Patience is hard, but very much a virtue in situations like this.
Good luck.

Don't know what you have but this is a standard 125v 30A RV plug. Home Depot and Lowes usually have a large selection of different plugs and sockets in stock.

I have adapters to connect to a 120v leg of a 220V dryer plug and to a 20A 120v and a few others. I consider my camper to be a mobile guest room.

Neat, I bought mine from Camping World Ocala and they did not understand it either. Got a lot of Good Sam (same company) stuff along with it.

Let us know when it arrives. What does it take, once it is on-board a ship? Three weeks? A month? Glad you got something worked out, so it can be shipped!

Wow! You guys are awesome! Thank you for the info and advice. I went and looked at the trailer yesterday. The guy had the trailer plugged into a 110v outlet with a high amp breaker. I mentioned that I thought the AC would run on 110 and he still didn't think it would. He said that he had to run it off of 2 generators when he used it (he didn't ever use it as they typically visited colder areas). I asked if I could try it and he didn't mind. I turned the switch and sure enough it was pumping out cold air He was surprised as he thought it had to use 220v.

Overall, the trailer looks pretty clean for a 2007. Some minor issues, like a missing clamp down clip on the front piece that raises up.

The only major issue I can find is that the awning is missing. Other than that, it looks like normal wear and tear.

I did find that it is a 2619 and not a 2720. The guys wife posted the Craigslist ad and I think she was guessing on the model number. Anyhow, are there any known issues with the 2619? From what I can tell, it is the exact same as the 2720, only a foot shorter.

Thanks again for all of the information. You guys are great!

The reason the seller needed 2 generators is they were too small. It takes a 4000w gen to run the AC. I think some here have used 2 gens of 2000 ea or at least one of 3000w.

Can you share the asking price? Is the missing clamp on the front corner or in the middle of each side?

The missing clamp is on the front passenger-side corner. It looks like it was pulled out somehow. He is offering to sell it for $9,500, which is about $1,000 under the NADA value due to the missing awning.

Ok. Asking price is not bad, not good either. Book value really has no basis here at this point. He doesn't know what he has... Has no idea about the AC, has no idea what model it is and it's damaged. Throw the book out. That clamp is minor issue and can be repaired easily. I have one out right now. Lost it over Xmas/New Years camping trip. There is a way to fix it better than new so if you do the deal, let me know and I'll send you a photo of the repair.

The awning, to me, is the bigger issue and creates a situation to really bargain with. I may not know what I'm talking about but awnings just don't fall off. They may be torn off, damaged and removed, but something has to be done to repair it. If it was me, I'd be on a ladder inspecting the entire area of the awning rail. Actually, you may not need a ladder since these are pop ups and the awning is part of the front roof. If your future intentions are to replace it new, who is going to order it, install it, repair any issues that may be found during install? These are questions that affect the purchase price of the TM, to me. If your intentions are to not replace it, and carry a pop up shade tent, fine, that's an option, but resale value for the TM after your done with it will always be affected. Good luck. Try and not let this unit be your only option. Don't get stuck that you have no options.
