Avion 9.1 Metre 1978 On Street

I noticed today a 1978 Avion 9.1 Metres in my neighborhood with "for sale" on it and a telephone number. I called to see what the price might be but haven't heard back. I took some outside pictures and will attach here. Does anyone want to investigate this further? I can't buy it, but I always get excited about seeing one.
It looks pretty good, but I see the outside of what looks like the water heater is missing.
I'll post here what more I learn, just in case.

A Little Damage

This is the only bit of damage I see on the outside.

I wonder if the damage was from a blown tire or the trailer being too low to the ground?

The 1978 Avion 9.1 had two configurations (center bath and rear bath).

9.1R Center Bath (30R)
9.1P Rear Bath (30P)

Here are pics of other 30P (9.1) units with center twins and rear bath.
