What to ask when buying

I'm new to Airstream but not a dunce. I started with the desire to buy a mid size trailer unit but have been somewhat smitten with the old motorhomes. I am considering an Excella or other under 25'. Can anyone refer me to the need to knows of buying a motorhome. I know each model will present different issues but I am looking for the 101 course so as not to get too badly hurt in a deal. I want to get a good 10,000 miles out of unit without a major issue so I set that as my min. However, I know that when buying an older unit you are buying a really big pet that needs constant TLC. It is my intention to upgrade it and wonder if anyone has tried adding solar units? What brand may have been used. How did the wiring go and where do you think extra batteries could go. Aside from that the basic rundown on purchasing would be great. If you know of a unit that you think I should look at then by all means let me in on the secret. Hope to see ya' on the road.
