2001 28 ft cardinal

looking at a 2001 28 ft cardinal 5th
it is beautiful. wife loves the floor plan.
have been reading about the issue with lippert frames and want to know if this unit could have a problem. noticed a split in the front closet frame and also the front left side has separated a little. under the front ,the aluminum cover has a ripple effect. I will try to post pics if I can figure it out. this is the link on that I have posted pics
thanks so much. moving up from trailer to new world

Aluminum panels have some rippling. Had a 2001HR Presidential. with all aluminum exterior panels. From what I can see in your pic the 5er has what I would call excessive rippling. I would get a expert inspection done before purchasing any older rv.
