Forest River Surveyor SV 291

I'm looking to buy a Sv 291 2007 and I notice that there is delaminating in 2 spots. One on the door side forward of the aft top window. The other looks like in the rear about half way up maybe a little more. Being a boat carpenter I'm thinking an epoxy fix. In other forums, I have read that epoxy may melt the foam, which is possible depending on the typ foam. I can buy the trailer pretty inexpensive, and the guy says it smells brand new inside not like a dirty sock. I guess my question is it worth the trouble. I am a newbie to TT's
Thanks for your comments

I guess it really depends on how bad the damage, what the price is and how much time you are willing to put into it. I see some guys doing incredible rebuilds of bass boats over on the bass boat central forums but then they get the boats for next to nothing and end up with some beautiful rides.

One thing for sure, RVs are not built as well as most boats.

My advice.
If delimitation is present, move on.
