What to look for...

I'm looking at a 1997 Winnebego Spirit 22' (?) on behalf of my inlaws. Aside from the mechanical stuff, egoist should I be looking for? There appears to have been a leak at the shower at one time and there is some waviness to the outside fiberglass. Us that delamination and is a big deal? Any thoughts are appreciated.

What you found would be enough to send me on down the road. There are a million of them out there at every price point.

Walk away .... There are way to many decent units out there to buy into a set of problems.

I agree with the others, walk away. I learned the hard way on the water issues on a 1997 gulfstream that was my first RV. Still working on it.

Delamination is big $$$$. The problem is you have no idea of the damage within the wall or the floors of the coach. My advise it to keep looking.

If your not familiar with delam issues then I would take a pass. In some cases delam can be a DIY type fix --- but often can be PIA major buck issue -- one of those "if you have to ask you can't afford it" problems. On all of your Class C investigations --- water intrusion is the big deal especially in the cab over area --- and delam almost always a result of water intrusion.
