    Moving to south florida soon, looking to buy a fifth wheel travel trailer,used or low tow time. would like a pop out.

    • I live in Indiana, not far from where many of those trailers are made. There seems to be no shortage of used trailers for sale around here! I would think too that Southern Florida would have many for sale as the people get older and may not want to pull them any longer.
