Mid 90s Rexhall Aerbus corrosion and wood rot

What are the issues with rot on an Aerbus of this age. There is an issue with the basement doors due to rot. At least one door would have to be replaced. It is gone. Would rot in this area be an indication of rot that has progressed further into the coach?

Are there specific places in the coach that should be inspected for floor rot, particularly rot that resulted from leaks other than plumbing leaks?

What value would be placed on such a motorhome with about 50,000 miles with a Chevy chassis.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Floor rot from outside water infiltration is only a problem if the coach is not maintained and is in a damp climate .Areas this occurs are gaskets around windows, roof seals for plumbing vent this will show up near closet, a/c / fan sealing will show up on ceiling, toilet / drain seals will show up in bath or kitchen floor areas. Intrusion from under floor is only possible at drivers and passenger floor areas as the main floor is covered by plastic and protected by the basement.

The basement door issue is IMO a design flaw of not laminating the outer skin to the substrate layers allowing moisture to condensate behind the panels inside the doors.

The integrated steel framing and frame attachments are usually quite solid and make this a sturdy coach design.
