May become a legitimate member of IRV2

I may just be getting a class c motor home now. It is a mid 2000's ford v10 with low mileage. We were contemplating getting a newer, maybe new class A and financing it to the max in the near future. The idea of that kept me awake at night and I found out today it kept my wife awake too.

We may be paying a premium on this as the mileage is very low. The MH is very clean inside and out so I am not real concerned about the premium if I am paying it. The price is slightly higher than NADA retail.

The one thing I am worried about is delamination. Now, first of all, I have some very compelling reasons to believe what the man who owns it is telling me and a friend of his (and mine). Having said that, I asked him if it had any leaks and he said no. I asked him what problems it may have. He said he knew of none. The owner is a very meticulous gentleman and everything he has if very clean and well maintained.
The rv has been in a shed all of its life.

Having said all that, what would you look at in a class c. I will google how to find delamination.

YOur help is appreciated and I and my wife looks very much forward to get on the road with our close friends who has a class A.

Thanks for your input.

FWIW I bought a gently used C about a year ago for less than loan value.
Thought it was new first time I saw it.
don't let NADA mislead you. do you homework.

Look at the roof, if its in good condition, all the seals and joints, maybe if the owner is OK with it is remove one or both tail lights, look at the wood behind the lights, crawl under the coach. check hoses wires to see if any critters have been chewing on the plastic. For me I'd look for termite damage. sounds funny but i seen it before. Good luck
