I keep seeing this in my local CL searches. Lead lined is not necessarily a good thing. Wonder how that increases the weight. Probably kills getting a wireless signal inside the camper too. And I think there are a lot of Airconditioners up top. Guess you can just alternate the use of them. Probably suped up generator. There were some benefits, but the lead lining wasn't really an asset in my opinion unless you think the aliens are reading your brainwaves.

Lead-lined could mean anything. Might be sheets of lead foil hardly thicker than Reynolds Wrap. Doesn't take much thickness; a mere 1mm thickness will block 99% of x-rays.

The problem is, lead is a carcinogen. If the owners kept the RV, it would cost them a lot more than the vehicle is worth to have the lead removed, so they're trying to sell the problem to someone who doesn't know what he's getting into.

Did any of you bother reading anything on the eBay posting? It clearly states that it was used as a mobile x-ray unit. Amazing.

On the other hand bet it gets great fuel mileage..................
