I bought a used 2007 Palomino Puma TT a few years ago. It was pristine on the inside but had been kept outdoors. Thanks to forums like this I was able to go over it top to bottom prior to purchase looking for issues. I did find a 8"x12" area of rot on the outer corner of the bottom of the slide out where water run off tends to pool. Knocked off the old rot, bleached it to kill any mold and let it dry. I got a plastic garage sale like sign and construction glued that to the bottom covering the area. I filled in the gap with expand a foam and put a brick on the floor area for it to dry even. I inspected the slide and roof and recaulked the seams with Dicor after cleaning with a mix of bleach and dawn dish soap. I used Eternabond on the edges and corners of the slide and it is tightly sealed. I am confident there will be no leaks from my repairs.
RV's are like boats, jet ski's, or any other mechanical recreational vehicle. They do take upkeep and light maintenance to keep them in operating condition. Common sense is helpful knowing that water is the biggest threat to a TT or MH.

The TT has plenty of room and storage especially with the rear bunk room. We used it for storage and it works out great. Plans change and my middle son is living in it so Mom and Dads plans changed and we bought a MH.
It pulls like a dream with no sway.
