Delamination of the sidewalls. I drove from MI to FL to look at one in 'excellent condition.' It was the worse I had ever seen.

Exterior fiberglass to plywood. Very large areas on both sides in the rear and another very large area on the front left side. The interior wasn't that great either, but more from the lack of po even seeing to care. It was a shame seeing a rv that had to be really great 10 years earlier looking so rough.

Wow.... not sure I'd touch that with a 20' pole. Run away. There are much better coaches out there.

I don't know much about Delamination, What is the issue with it besides it looking bad?

Some of the glue used in the early laminated wall rvs wasn't up to the task. Later the problem was usually the sign of a water leak. Depending on how long and severely it leaked the repair can be very expensive and a lot of work.

This guy did it and documented it. His pictures show the damage that can occur and the amount of work to repair it.

I have owned a couple of similar era landyachts and legacys. I know that they are prone to delamination, but in my opinion the real issue is whether or not the MotorHome is leaking water still or not. If a Motorhome has once had a leak that caused delamination but it has been fixed, you shouldn't be expieriencing any further delamination. If you can live with the cosmetic imperfections then you typically end up getting a great motorhome for less money. Airstreams are quality built Motorhomes, I wouldn't shy away because of some delamination, now I wouldn't pay top dollar for it either. You will probably pay a bit more for one that is in perfect condition. Just my 2 cents.
Dave.

value

with the delam that is shown in the picture what would you say the value of this coach would be? i think that the guy selling knows this is going to hurt his value huge that is why he doesn't have this picture shown.

too bad because the interior is very nice and it is an AS which i would love to have.

Just looked out on RVtraderonline.com and found one exactly like the one you are referring too. They are asking 26,950.00 if that is correct, I would say take 7grand off for the delam. So best guess is around 20 as long as everything else is in good shape and works.

How many miles? It is tbi and most likely the 4L80E trans (not the best GM ever designed). How old are the tires? Air conditioning, refrigerator, furnace, are all big ticket to replace or repair, how are they?

What is the cargo capacity? There is a lot of rear overhang, it looks like it should have had a tag. Don't get into a situation where you can only carry a few hundred pounds of passenger, clothes, food, etc.

That seems to be some leak to have started between the front salon windows and made its way all the way back to below the bedroom window. Again, its your call, but it seems it would be a delam from something more extensive than a leak.
