Good luck John! I didn't do to bad, I paid $300 more than what was on your window. Same deal with me, I originally went to see a 2001 T-2553 and it was awesome until I inspected the roof. 60-70% if the roof was wasted. I was already upstate NY and happened to see one on Craig's list 35 minutes from my location and it was gorgeous! The tires where brand new no cracks and everything else was spotless. I had a tough 87 y/o seller and he new what he had. I just about got on my knees and begged him to come down a little on the price. I even showed him pic's if my two little boys lol. I know how you feel, I love my camper.
If you want copies if the owners manual let me know.
