Great list of inspection items--I would add: 1] look for water leaks around front/rear caps and the exterior floor/basement belt trim; 2] look for signs of exhaust manifold cracks/gasket leaks; 3] similar to the newer coaches, check the steering knuckle bracket for fatigue cracks; 4] flex hose connection at wall for kitchen sink; 5] grease boots on drag link and tie-rod; 6] wire nuts in genset junction box connection; 7] fiberglass stress crack near/at lower corner of bedroom slide; 8] leaks at HWH hydraulic hoase connections; 9] coolant hose leaks at back of engine or on front bulkhead[h-valve]; and perhaps most important for buying a used rig, did the owner make the effort to keep a maintenance log--if not, what else did they overlook? Good hunting!!!!!!
