1996 Excella Wide Body 28'

I am new to Airstream and am traveling to the Phoenix area to look at a 1996 Excella 28' with an asking price of 23,000.00 I have seen videos and pictures and everything looks in good shape. I am looking for advice as to what I should pay the most attention to during my inspection. I have read I should pay attention to the axels but what do I look for. What else should I look for other than the obvious leaks, soft spots etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Water damage to the wooden subfloor and rusting of the frame, to me are the biggest concern, especially if the trailer has spent some of it's life in a moist environment.

There is a inspection check list here on the forum that might help. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...ist-43294.html

Also read the part about volunteer inspectors. There are forum members in the Phoenix area that might be willing to help you take a look.
