Default Maybe new owner Fun Finder X 139, 2006 year

Hi. I'm not new to RVs but I haven't always owned one. I've had 3 travel trailers that were too big for our uses in the past. Kept each for about 2 or 3 years before reselling.

I may buy a 2006 Fun Finder X 139 (14 footer) that has some delamination of the front cap and side walls within a foot or two of the cap. It has separated a little from the corner molding toward the bottom and top where it curves.

I've got it for $2,700 if I want it. It's in good shape other than the delam and has brand new tires and a spare. The owner was asking 6,000 and I talked him down to $2,700 due to the delam, a fridge that is missing a door (and may not work) and that's about it as to problems.

I'm looking at it Thursday morning and want to ask advice as to how and where to look as to know about sub-surface damages such as ruined wood. Any tips and tricks?

Also, I was wondering if it would be ok to cover the cap with either aluminum sheeting or corrugated metal of some kind, IF the cap wood is ruined. I really do not want to get into ripping the whole thing apart and making it look like a new trailer. I just want it tough and leak proof and look good enough. What are the options and likely price for me to DIY a fix from the front cap and part of each sidewall delamination?

Also, is there anything else I should look for on this little trailer? Thank you very much!

A deamination is serious rebuild. Take your money and run away. The cap and roof repair will be costly. You would be better off looking for something in better condition.
