Default Small but Mighty!

IT may be small but it really has a lot to offer. We just lost our 31ft fifth wheel to rot and also a lot of cash and if not for our great insurance company would have lost everything. Deciding that we "are going to continue camping" and checking out tents, tent trailers, and even truck mounted tents we knew another trailer would have to be the answer. We went with a 2007 139 funfinder. It is absolutely in new condition it was like the dealer never set it up as the paperwork was still in the fridge, the stickers in the sink, the awning still had paper wrapped inside and the pull cord not even attached. It had never had water put in it toilet never used etc. She had bought it to take to art shows but had it delivered to her home and they backed it into a small area of her studio and there it sat for all these years until she got re married last year and they decided to sell it. I paid a bit more than it was worth but got a really good deal considering it is loaded and in new condition. It even had a new easy lift hitch absolutely new and the little nubs are still on the tires as though just put on. We have used it twice so far and have really loved it that being said we do miss waking up the the big back windows and fireplace in our old 5th wheel but are so glad to be in our little funfinder.

Congrats on your new trailer!

A word of caution though. Even though your tires may look new, if they are the ones that came with trailer its probably getting time to replace them. Tires that are older than 5 to 7 years, regardless of wear, should be replaced. You can tell for sure the age of the tires by reading the date code on sidewall.

Check this tech tip for info on reading tire date codes:

Default Tires

Thanks so much for the warning as we are traveling this week end almost 400 miles. I have a brand new spare but will check out changing the tires out soon as we are back from this trip. Phil
