x3 on that.
There are a couple hundred things to inspect. Just Google "buying a used RV" and see what comes up. We bought our first RV this year. It's a 2002 on similar chassis as the one your looking at and we love it. We did have to sink some money into it, some we planned on and some we did not.
A couple of big ticket items that come mind as potential red flags.
Tires - not a deal breaker but if the tires are over 5 years old budget to have the replaced soon. Over 7 replace right away.
Refrigerator - expensive to fix if cooling unit fails ( i know this first hand)
Roof or window leaking - water damage can be very expensive to fix.
Any obvious issues with the slides - such as miss-alignment or bad seals.
I'd look for signs that the previous owner took pride and good care of their motorhome. Look for records that indicate routine maintenance was done.
