I'm in the market for a "new to me" Class A Coach.

As far as delamination is concerned, what exactly am I looking for and what are the best areas to look for it when inspecting a coach?

I'm looking mainly at Monaco and Beaver Coaches in the 1993 to 1999 range.

My 2006 5th wheel did what i would consider delaminate by having one of the forty foot side panels pull loose from the mainframe. It was very obvious that there was a problem. Is it always obvious?

IMO delamination is difficult to hide. Usually the exterior wall is warped, or bubbled. The most obvious places to look are along the roof seam and under windows and doors. Look for newly painted area's in the same location.
On the inteiror I would check for dry-rot around slides, especailly near the bottom and along side and under window frames.
I don't consider exterior walls pulling away from the mainframe delamination. More then likely you had a frame twist as we did in one of our fivers. The complete front cap cracked!
