Question fiberglass

when out shopping for a motorhome, apart from choosing the floor plan that will work best, what or how would you see, or find rot, fiberglass delamination, or the structural integrity of the coach? Delaminated fiberglass would be my big concern. Is there some why of testing the fiberglass? Or are there motorhome surveyor's? Thanks in advance for all replies.

Just observing the overall condition will lead to its condition and how well it's been taking care of. In most cases delamination causes bumps/bubbles in the surface but sometimes it stays flat and comes apart.

Look down the side of the RV with a light source in the right position and every bulge, hump, or depression will be visible. Normally the wall is smooth, straight, even, and feel solid when thumped with your hand. There are youtube videos for this.
