2000 safari?

I am planning to look at a 2000 safari this weekend. Any suggestions on what specifically I should be carefully inspecting?

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard!!

Most important disregard, "well everything worked last time out."
It's usually pretty easy to determine how well it's been maintained, spray some water on the skin, see if it's been waxed/sealed recently.

Go thru the obvious, ext lights, batteries, furnace, water pump, electric jack, shore power cord, water heater, co/smoke detector, fridge. Int. lights and fixtures, plug in check converter. Inspect door, windows and roof vents for leaks, esp black tank vent. Plastic cabinet latches and pantry slide. Tires, brakes & axles.

Look for filiform.....aluMATTER*|*Aluminium*|*Forms of Corrosion*|*Filliform Corrosion

Good luck keep us posted.

I'd also check the flooring around the toilet - soggy floor=leaky toilet and some repair. Ditto for the shower pan, if so equipped. General level of cleanliness will give you an idea of how well it has been maintained.
See if you can pull a wheel to inspect the brakes and also look at tire wear.
Look at hinges to see if they have been lubed, check the rubber window gaskets for cracking and look under the galley cabinets for mouse droppings.
Crawl underneath and look at general condition.

Best of luck - let us know what you find and what you decide!
