The best stuff I have found for rust is a product by marhyde called one step. don't buy it in a spray can though. You brush it on and uses a chemical reaction to convert the rust to a black primer. Looks like chocolate milk. Simply amazing stuff
Mar-Hyde One-Step Rust Converter 3513 Good luck SNO

its always best to grind it off, replace with new metal if needed, and then paint.

just what I do.

Depends on location cause snd material

One can use straight paint thinner as penetrating oil is it is just real thin oil.

This gets into the stuff to loosen it up.

Brush off and repeat until nothing else comes off.

Thin paint brushed or scrubbed in seals it to block oxygen so no more rusting.

Takes a few good coats to seal well.

So, you wouldn't be concerned about buying and older MH that has some rust in the basement compartments or around the generator compartment?

Concerned yes.

Deal breaker...depends on what it is.

Some surface rust is a leverage item.

Structural issues closes the door.

Tony and Lori, Kind of what I thought. Some look like surface rust and could be cleaned up and painted but others are showing frame deteroration. What I worry about is what you can't see. Not afraid of a little work to get things improved.
