So I think it's more important to thoroughly check out the particular trailer you're interested rather than rely on what year it was made. Especially, was it well cared for, did it have the proper maintenance, were there any leaks that didn't get addressed, were there any modifications done, if so were they done properly, etc.
Also one thing you may miss is the walk-around bed. When we were looking that was a major reason we chose the 210 over the 189.
Makes sense, thanks. Yeah that bed was pretty nice. With a mattress cover, it was as comfortable as the bed in our bedroom. It really was a great trailer.
The only things jacked up was the video component to the TV. It wasn't obvious. Behind the stereo was full of wood carvings. I'd have added insulation around the sewer pipe where it comes into the floor, because there was a 1 1/2" gap. I had to replace the CO2 alarm, but that can happen to any trailer. They sent one to me, no problem. Oh, almost forgot, the TV and mount fell to the floor. They should have drilled all the way through into the closet, and use nuts and bolts. It didn't break anything but the component connections to the TV. That's how I found out the wire for video was leading to occassional problems with the picture.
Overall, it was a very well built trailer.
