Between those excursions on the beach and a short 50 mile drive in Iowa in the wintertime my MH started showing an immense amount of rust within a few months. I did wash it every time I walked into the fires of salt.

I guess Class C Itasca's (and the Ford chassis they're built on) are just built better, with superior finishes than Holiday Ramblers are then.
The original owner of my unit lived on a waterfront lot and the unit was parked within 100' of the Gulf of Mexico and he was an avid surf fisherman. My rig spent many hundreds of days, both before and after I purchased it, on and next to both Gulf and Atlantic beaches.
There's still no visible rust after 20 years.
It was "built Ford tough" I guess. LOL.
