Welcome to the Forums!!!
I'd say that what you paid was spot on what it was worth. Someone here in the Houston area purchased one recently for parts and paid about the same amount of money you quoted. Check out the price of new Zip Dee awnings, windows, and a used AC, Fridge, and the other internals, and you will get an idea of the value of the unit.
Lots of work ahead, use the "search" function as your new best friend. Nothing that can't be fixed - depends on what your time is worth.
You didn't say just when the rollover occured, but if it has been a couple of years (and the unit has been stored outside) there may be a good chance that you might find some "floor rot" (do a search) around the floor perimeter. This is pretty much normal for a unit 30+ years old - especially when a seam may have been compromised.
Good luck - pics and a blow by blow documentation would be most appreciated.
