Generator was not standard. I think Airstreams quality was about the best during the 80's. Your furnace is old enough to be an issue (misc switches,gas control valve, thermostat), Microwave is getting tired, Frig had dual thermostats if original and expensive to service. Clear coat is well beyound 10 years, brakes will have some minor issues. Vulkem needs touching up around doors, vents, etc.
Check your lock and deadbolt. Expensive if you have to replace. Are front windows leaking? Drapes are expensive if soiled.
I have had very few problems with mine. I have no sagging in rear. Mine spent a little time in Florida but, frame was not rusted bad.
