Leaking Black Water Tank

We are looking at a 2004 22 ft international ccd. There is rust around the left side seam (facing the back of the trailer) and a little on the back from that edge of the black water tank. The current owner said it leaked a little bit the last time they used it. I am new to Airstream. Is this a big deal and would it be expensive to get fixed?
Thank you

Inspect that trailer carefully. The floor is made of OSB. Many samples of that model have had rotten floors in back. It sounds like this trailer might be a candidate for that.

Also note that there was a reinforcement kit update from Airstream for the frame outriggers on these trailers.

A search of the forums will turn up more about this model. It's a neat floor plan, but make sure the trailer is solid.

Find out what leaked and why? Was it the dump valve or the tank itself? Was it an overfilled tank? A leaking dump valve would not be a big deal. A cracked black water tank would.You could fill the black water tank with water and see what happens.
