Default Water stains around Roadtrek windows?

Hello everyone. First post here.

I'm looking to purchase a class B or a converted van, but when I look at Roadtreks, I notice quite a few of them have moisture around the three skylight windows. Has anyone else noticed if these are normal or if I should avoid them altogether? They are mostly between 2002-2005, the ones I've seen. I saw a "newer" 2007 210 that did not have this issue. Biggest concern is mold.

Windows can and do leak. The older the van, the more likely these windows have needed work, and not received it. Personally I would avoid buying any vehicle with visible water damage because you never know what you can't see.

Default 190 Ranger

The Roadwork Ranger has fake windows, i.e. no leaks or mold ... lol.
The original 2012 Ranger, built on a 3/4 ton 2500 chevy express chassis, was designed as a scaled down no frills cheaper version of the 190 Poplar A "190/Ranger" may be worth looking at if it falls inside your budget and you can find one. They are similar in content to a 190 Poplar but with no drop down floor (shower area is contained behind hall door) and have vinyl floors instead of carpets. I expect that there aren't very many of them.
