Be careful with rust, there have been a few flooded RVs on the market.
All undercarriages rust. some more then others. I would expect to see a fair amount on a vehicle with 25k on the clock.. Especially if it is from the north and driven during the winter (salted roads) or from a coastal community.
I would not want to see ANY flaking rust or pitted parts light surface ok.
