Exterior cracks

Does anyone know if it is a common problem to have 2 small exterior cracks in some 25 FB twin units. The cracks are at the base of the exterior
panel starting at the forward access door behind the LP tanks.
I am looking to purchase this unit.

Thanks for any advice on this one.

That is not common.
There was an issue several years ago, with the squared-off front storage compartment doors, that would crack like you're describing. The rounded doors generally don't do that, unless something else happened. The "something else" could be simply a too-heavy-duty tow vehicle, or too stiff WD bars, or even towing for extended periods on really, really rough roads.
The cracks are stress cracks caused by flexing around the door.

Photos would help a lot.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
