Yes, 15 years is quite a lot of time. You are right. We have only seen the pictures, but next week we would like to go look in person. That should give the real story at least on the surface. We like to keep our units paid for (which we have) and figure if the foundation is good, appliances (though spendy), carpet are cosmetic and can only make it that much better. The whole body is fiberglass so we are thinking (aside from the slides) that it is basically a sealed unit (provided there are no cracks). It really needs to be looked over roof, slides, etc. I am not trying to neglect your advice, so please talk to me if you see otherwise. We enjoy another point of view and would be foolish to ignore it. :-)

According to 2000 London-Aire Fifth Wheel Series M-39KSWB (*) Standard Equipment, Prices & Specs - NADAguides this 5er is a beast at 17,600 #. It does not say if that is dry or GVWR. It also says this was the last year for this model, which sold for $116,000 new - 15 years ago!! MSRP. You will definitely need a great TV like you have for this rig. Sounds like a really nice and unusual rig!
