Getting ready to take delivery

We're going to pick up our 2004 SV-291 on Saturday! We're really excited and new to RV-ing. I've done a lot of research and this rig looks like the best bang for our price range. We really considered going new and have looked at a bajillion models at this point, but figured this might be a more practical way to get our feet wet and find out what we really want/need when we go for 'the big one.'

I already did a pretty extensive walk-around/inspection and everything is solid save for a few minor details that can be easily fixed. Are there any specific quirks or known problems I should look out for on this model? It's a bit older than I was hoping for, but the price is right and it fits our needs better than any other we've seen so far.

Thanks to all!

Please learn from my mistake..... take another walk around your RV, slowly and carefully have the natural sunlight reflect on the paint. There you will notice a textured type paint, that paint was painted by the manufacturer. If you see a very smooth patch of paint, a red flag should appear. That was painted by a body shop. If it is anywhere around a structural stress location of your RV, a million red flags should go off. It may look beautiful and the price is right, speaking from experience DO NOT BUY IT and get your money back before it is to late. If you don't you will have the same problem that I do.
