Question Problem Or No Problem

We looked at a 2005 Monaco a few days ago and it was very nice. Husband noticed a spot near the water heater compartment that was bubbling rust that had not gone through the paint. It was about the size of a half dollar maybe slightly larger. We also noticed that the windshield wiper arms where rusted. Husband did not crawl underneath the coach but would certainly do that prior to purchasing. How much of a concern is this?

Sounds like nothing to me. Better to pay a professional RV inspector to check everything. Expect to pay $300 or more as they will check engine, transmission,in addition to all RV systems and probably take 3 or more hours.

Rust coiuld be a HUGE problem. Before anything, I would have a qualified RV mechanic check it over for rust in other areas. If there is rust in morer areas, stasy away! It is not the rust you find, but the hidden rust that will get you!
Happy Trails!
