I am looking at a 2004 Beaver Marquis Garnet with 48,000 mi.
Generally in excellent condition, but has some discolored cabinets - kind of graying, milky appearance.
Also has several circular marks about 1.5" diameter on exterior passenger side, which owner says are attachment points of interior cabinets. One of those has what looks to be a crack.
Roofline on passenger side is slightly wavy.

I plan to investigate further, but wondering if anyone has thoughts about:

Beaver Marquis.
Ideas about cause of graying/milkiness.
What circles are.
Is very minor waviness at roof a concern?
What would good price be?

The graying is discolored clear coat that is common in that year Beavers cabinet finish. The cabinets should be mounted to the structural framing, so I don't see how the spots could be mounting points. The crack in the fiberglass will just get bigger.

The wavy roof line is something I would run away from, as I suspect it is water damage. Regardless...it should be straight. The roof is covered by s single sheet of fiberglass front to rear and side to side. That was a very well built coach when it was new and from what you describe it seems to have succumbed to the rain and too much sun. While these things do not make it a bad buy, they would impact the purchase a lot. Below low NADA by a lot. There are many, many coaches out there. Find a better one.
