Check for roof leaks, especially at the back corners. If it has closets across the back open up the doors and inspect the walls and check for musty smell. Push on the walls and ceiling for soft spots. Get up on a ladder and check roof for soft areas across the back. Push on the roof to see if it feels firm. It will give a little because of the bud board but should not feel like your hand could go through it. A Sunline can look perfect because the leaks don't usually show up until the damage is intense. If it is solid with no leaks you found a good one! Good Luck
