When buying any used camper we always recommend taking along a damp meter these are cheaply available from Ebay and simple to use and can save you a lot of money and act as a bargaining tool.£8.79

Try everything electrical you can, ask about heating and water systems, and decide if its been lucky enough to enjoy winter storage out of the elements or has been damaged in the past

These excellent campers don't suffer a great number of issues,

Legs; as powered can be problematic if rain has corroded mechanism, requiring a rebuild,

Leaks; usually to rear wall, (toilet) sometimes in cab-over (at join with headboard,) once with a members' roof (though uncommon)

A member posted this after viewing a camper in 2018;

Took a look at this unit today
Seems more like a "project to me, internal cabinetry/Shower room in good condition, however there is water damage in the front panel over cab area which will have to be stripped back
(who knows what else you might discover).

Externally panelling looks fine however the roof would appear to be rather flimsy, All four legs work fine, all the windows and Door glazing is "single glaze" and is of the Louvre type, as in non sliding, including the roof vents

This has appeared for sale in UK on several occasions and best avoided
