Going to go look at a Hybrid

Heading out Saturday to look at an '06 Shamrock by Forest River 19 hybrid. I've downloaded and printed the RV Inspection Checklist from changingears.com that appears to be the most complete list of Inspection Items I can find.

Any specific areas to look at given this make and model?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Keep an eye out for any place rain might have gotten into. Look around the hinge area of the bunk ends, especially inside. Look inside the storage bays. Look for floor areas that may be overly soft. See how solid the steps feel. Some are attached to the frame, other step designs have the bolts going thru the floor. Have a ladder handy to look over the roof. For a 8 year unit it's almost a given some of the caulked areas would have needed a touch-up. See how the frig lights on gas and 110v.

Thanks for the additional inspection points. I ended up buying it!

There are some problem areas, but I got it for a song. I'm going to post some additional info in the "New Rig" section.

Thanks again!
