Orginally, I planned to use a hauler from the area I was shipping from. The hauler told me he needed to site visit the travel trailer prior to make sure it was road worthy. I fully understood. Two days before the camper was to be moved, he called to tell me, the trailer was not road worthy due to the following: 1. Light plug being corroded from being in the dirt 2. Battery was gone from sitting in water. 3. Deck was attached. I tried to explain , it's not attached, and sits like a curb about 6 inches away from camper. 4. Trailer was on blocks-I haven't seen them any other way. He told me I would not be able to put the slide outs in without the battery and said he couldn't tow it w/o lights. I asked if he could out temporary lights on...he said no, but he could repair the plug, for a price. He also offered to repair the battery, I asked if I could use electric power to close the slides, he said he didn't think so. At that point I know I was being scammed. But with only 2 days left until I had to move the camper, or pay site fees, I wasn't sure what choice I had. I placed the listing on Uship, and within 12 hours I booked another hauler. I explained what the other hauler advised me. The hauler took note of it, but told me he didn't think these things were in issue. Come to find out, my lights are fine-plug and all. The electric does close the slides. The deck didn't need moving. And the blocks were taken by our hauler to use at the new site.
