I think we all realize that proper maintenance can considerably extend the life of any vehicle. What the resort owner in Florida was saying is that in his experience, most aren't maintained that well and certain items like the roof and major appliances, seemed to go at about 10 years. For example, he said that there's some kind of preservative you're supposed to put on rubber roofs each year...but 99% of the owners never do until they need a new roof.

Since I'll be buying a used unit and have absolutely no idea of the previous maintenance history, I have to assume that it's been minimal at best and to expect the worst. Those are the conditions that I'm basing my inquiry.
