1978 Holiday Rambler

I haven't seen this camper yet. Planning on checking it out Saturday morning. However I just heard from the owner that her husband fixed the leaking roof by putting tar paper over it. I do not know if he covered the entire roof or just the area that had the leak. However I do not have a good feeling about how he has repaired the leaking roof.
I know the entire interior including the bathroom has been removed. I know that the ceiling and walls will have to be replaced. However I have been told that the floor is good, no soft spots. I can buy it for $700.00
I need advice on what to do. Should I just walk away fron this camper??!!!

Hmmmm - so some guy want you to pay HIM $700 to haul off his hazardous waste.

Best solution for a coach like that is a can of gas and a match.

Stay far far away from this "DEAL"!!!!!!!!!!
I suspect it will be a money pit you will not be able to get away from.
