Thanks for your help on this one,
Gaskets, gaskets and more gaskets.
Seams are usually secondary leaks to gaskets.
Window gaskets, access compartment door gaskets, entrance door gaskets, ceiling vent cover gaskets, and the infamous and extremely short lived 95 years)sewer vent pipe cover gaskets.
Since you haven't bought it yet, check out the axles, too. If they are bad, the buying offer drops almost $2000.00.
Check the coach for rear end separation, as well. That can cost from a few hundred dollars to over $3000.00, depending on how severe it may be.
