I agree with the others here - that "small front ..."will only get bigger in time after being exposed to rain,wind,etc.

Run - don't walk.

In most cases, it must go back to the maker and they will replace the entire, side or back or frount. It is best to pass on that one. Good Luck

This was my initial feeling, run. I checked with the location where the owners had purchased the trailer and had all maintenance done on it. The top had been replaced with full syn-rubber after the delams were checked and found to be non-structural. After a proper waiting period, ~around one year the roof seal was checked the sides re-inspected and found to be in no different condition.
Would I purchase one that had not had this work done and inspected? No. Would I purchase one that had this done and warranted by a reputable shop? Only at a steep discount to the market. Have I had good luck with the trailer since purchasing? Yes, it has served well and the delam is not progressing.

I think it depends on where it's at and how good of a deal you want to make. In 2004 my uncle bought a 02 coachmen that had about a 12" round delam spot behind the ladder, he bought it for half of blue book value and in almost 10 years it has not got any bigger. Definitely got his money's worth out of the RV.

If it's on a side wall with lots of room to grow.... Probably not.
