I bought my Pod used, I got a 90 day warranty. Way back in this post Royal says he is not a "fix it guy", I think that is important. Anything used, no warranty, I think you need an ability to try and fix or the funds to have it fixed and that can drive the cost up, that labor is expensive. A RV in the shop all the time is not a good investment. I'm retired so working on the Pod is almost a hobby, I have tools, a shop building and experience as an auto rebuilder.

I mean, I can fix basic things...I just wouldn't want to mess with plumbing, electrical or any of that kind of stuff.  I would want a relatively durable and as low-maintenance as I can.  Casitas appear to be pretty good in that regard, at least from what I have read.  R-Pod reviews are more mixed with some talking about "staples" and "tacks" being used.  Whether that's true or not, I don't know...I'll have to see one first.  thanks!
Go Royals!

A fiberglass trailer like the Casita and Scamp, doesn't have the structural issues that trailers that are made of wood and metal, like a Pod.  They are like a boat both inside and out.  They remind me of a McGregor 25's interior.  But, if you want something that doesn't need a lot of maintenance work, a Scamp or Casita will probably serve you best.
