      we bought a Evergreen Ascend Cloud c193bh RV great travel trailer very roomy, can’t wait to start using it. But the only problem is we find out the unit is what they call an orphan. the Dealer who sold us the RV never mentioned that evergreen folded. so now we are worried about warranty for this unit, we did buy a warranty that the dealer Oak centre mall (TRX.RV)sold us. that only covers small stuff not structure, has another company bought Evergreen out an if so will they honor a warranty.

      I’m interested in a good used travel trailer. Maybe 2016 or order depending on features. Going to be used mostly for when I’m workomg out of town and some family vacations

    • Derrek Sigler - July 5th, 2017

      Hi Dustin.

      Wit the RV industry doing well again, there seems to be a lot of new RVs being sold, and a lot of really good used ones hitting the market. Check with your local dealers first to see what may have been traded in. Another thing to consider would be a new unit based on the amazing financing offers coming up lately.

    • Ruth & David Martin - July 6th, 2017

      We have a 2014 North Trail Heartland. It has been usd only three weeks. I (Ruth) severely broke and dislocated my right foot & leg May 2015. It is not yet completely healed and I now walk with a cane. I cannot easily go up and down steps on the RV……even though there are only three steps. Our camper looks brand new as it has had so little use.
      It’s well made and a beautiful unit. It sleeps six.
      We are older retirees who “planned” to do some traveling until my unfortunate accident.
      The unit is located in St. George, Utah.
      Our low asking price is $13,500. I can email pictures if you are interested.
      It is the perfect solution for all your needs. New with taxes it cost over $30,000.

    • Jackie Neace - July 13th, 2017

      Would love to see some pictures of your RV. We are in the market, however we live in Kentucky, but it would be nice to see Utah. Thank You

    • Kathy Alcala - July 30th, 2017

      Ruth, sorry to hear about your unfortunate accident. If your trailer is still available, please email me photos. We are in So Cal but our son / daughter in law are in Salt Lake. Thx. Kathalcala@gmail.com

      I have a Sabre RETS-6 fifth wheel for sale in Danville Ky.

    • Mike Comfort - August 8th, 2017

      Always get warranty information at time of purchase, new or used, when buying from a dealer. I bought last RV used, got a year warranty with it in writing. Buy what you want, not what the dealer wants. There are way too many dealers and individuals selling travel trailers.

    • Jerry Patterson - August 14th, 2017

      Do they make a ONE BEDROOM travel trailer To sleep one or two people?

    • Lucas Cooney - August 23rd, 2017

      There are many compact travel trailers that are perfect for one or two people.

    • Derrek Sigler - August 23rd, 2017

      Jerry – Here’s one I saw at an RV show not that long ago that I really liked.


      Like Lucas said, there’s a lot of them

    • Ellie D - August 26th, 2017

      Go search on Facebook and see the Silver Streak Trailer Co. which is making new aircraft aluminum trailers in the same style as the 1950’s originals. All aluminum, even the floor, and a galvanized chassis, they’re amazing!

    • Barb conrady - September 19th, 2017

      Looking for a trailer near Tampa (Zepher Hills) Fl area that I can purchase so I can live there during the winter months as MN gets too cold. Any suggestions?
