If you are going to tow it you need to go through the bearings. Another would be the wiring for cargo lights and other much needed component wiring.

Check all floors and roof for rot. Put water to it to check plumbing.

As last post said be sure to check under sinks and counters for soft spots in floor esp around water heaters and where water connections come into unit. Easy to miss rot in these out of the way placesl . Been there done that. yohop

Check the roof. It may have a rubber roof if it does make sure it's in good shape and that there are no soft spots under the rubber.

stored inside 2 years. the mice would have had a field day. Check for mouse damage in every nook and cranny. Those little buggers get in every where their head can fit.
