13. our trailer was 10 years old when we bought it
look for 16" center studs and 2x4 construction in the walls, also watch out for the polybutylene plumbing (gray plastic that is difficult to work with and has a bad habit of leaking) that was outlawed in 1995, so any trailer after about 1996 is probably safe.

here's a good website to check out before buying a used trailer

then once you're a proud owner, let me know, I know some good tricks to take the 'trailer trashy' out of the trailer decorating :evilgrin:
