Default Inspection Checklist for used Roadtrek?

I will be looking at a mid-1990's Roadtrek 190 in a few days, my first RV adventure, and wondered if anyone had suggestions of specific items/issues to check out, or better yet, if there was such a checklist already available.....

Thanks for any suggestions!

Check my reply to the subject directly below yours on the first page. Everything I recommended to Matt applies to the unit you're looking at!

RSchleder summed it up well. Here's the post he was referring to:

It is worth taking an older van to a mechanic.

For the RV side of things it should be demonstrated to you by the seller that everything works. I didn't test all systems when I bought my current van and right away it needed a new water heater (maybe $400 from memory) and new tires at a cost of around $1,000. I did get the van for a good price and didn't really mind getting the new parts but my point is that it is a good idea to have some money set aside or at least allowed for unexpected repairs to an older vehicle when negotiating the purchase price.
