Looking to buy!

Hi all,
I am new to the camper purchasing process. I thought I would ask for your help on what to look for. I am in the process of trying to buy a 2014 Wildwood 31BKIS. The seller lives about 6 hours from where I live and comes to town every so often. I am in the process of getting pics and etc. I will make a trip to look over the camper before purchase, but just wanted to know what are some of the questions to ask and what to look for when I go take a look at it. Any help is appreciated.

Here are two good places to start for your checklist.

RV Inspection Checklist

I have a friend who hired a Mobile RV Repair person to inspect the RV with him. It cost him about $200, but he said it was well worth it as he knew exactly what he was getting into. The RV needed a couple of repairs, but they were repairs he could do. You might want to think about finding one in that area to inspect it with you.

The 31BKIS can weigh as much as 10,469 pounds when fully loaded. Make sure you have enough truck.

As someone who owns a similar size/weight unit, I'm not sure a half-ton is enough... (personal opinion)
