Here at South Thompson, we believe that every RV deserves a second chance! Recreational vehicles are built to last, and a well-maintained unit can provide years of service. There are plenty of reasons why folks may be on the hunt for a used camper, from searching for a specific retro design to testing out RV-ownership without a huge financial investment. If you’re worried about the quality of buying used, then shop with ease knowing that South Thompson delivers the best previously-owned trailers, campers, fifth wheels, motorhomes and toy haulers in Southern British Columbia!
We don’t just give each unit a quick glance and then add it to our inventory like other dealerships. At South Thompson, we take the time to carefully inspect every system until we can guarantee that each used RV on the lot is in perfect working order: we inspect all plumbing systems and triple-check for leaks in every nook and cranny; we test the heating, cooling and ventilation units, including cracks in windows, flooring and roof insulation; we test all electrical systems, including DC and AC systems, and ensure that all outlets and electrical appliances have undisrupted power; wheel bearings, brakes, tires and the trailer hitch will all be inspected to ensure your safety on the road; awnings, hinges, stairs, undercarriage, fabrics and just about anything else you can think of are carefully inspected and repaired; and we always make sure you drive away with charged batteries, and full propane and water tanks.
There is nothing that says “used vehicle” like a lack of attention to detail during the cleaning process. That’s why South Thompson has a dedicated team who details every camper from trailer hitch to taillights. On the inside, our team uses RV-specific cleaning products to polish all surfaces, bathrooms, window and door seals, drawers and cupboards, appliances and fabrics before allowing the unit to fully air out to avoid mildew buildup. The exterior receives just as much TLC as we carefully inspect and repair the outer shell, clear mud and debris from the undercarriage, wash the windows and awnings, shine the tires and apply a gorgeous, protective wax - making each used unit look brand new on BC highways.
Just because you’re buying a used trailer doesn’t mean you should miss out on any step of the exciting buying process! Our team celebrates every time an RV finds a new home, because we know that you’re about to make lifelong memories on the open road. Before we hand over the keys, we’ll walk you through your new RV and carefully demonstrate the perfect working order of your unit. Sure, it might seem tedious to watch us test all of the outlets and faucets on board - but you’ll be thankful for the peace of mind this step provides once you set off on your first adventure.
We go above and beyond to breathe new life into our used RVs, and help them find happy homes with folks from Kamloops and across Southern British Columbia. Every step of our inspection and detailing process helps guarantee the quality and dependability of each trailer, camper, fifth wheel, motorhome and toy hauler that we proudly sell.
