Advise on this slide-out needed...

Hi folks! Kind of excited that we may have found our Roo 21SS. It's 10-hours away so a bit of a drive to see it in person. It's a 2007, one owner, new tires, new battery (upgraded to a 2-battery system), etc. Anyway, it all sounds good.
The only real warning light I've got is on the slide. See how the gasket looks a bit wonkey, and then how it doesn't slide in all the way at the bottom. He says too that along with the trim around the bottom needing to be replaced because it's cracking, that there is a strip of metal that wiggles (but is fully secure) when driving down the road. I still don't know what strip he's referring to. Anyway, we hit the road early tomorrow morning and would be grateful for any and all on input and expertise!

THANKS BUNCHES,
Celeste and Randy...

That's pretty normal for a 10 year old trailer.
Mines the same year.
The outside looks better than mine.

The seals shouldn't cost that much to replace.
From the 2 pics, it looks well taken care of.

We almost bought the 21SS, since it would easily fit in the driveway.
but the DW insisted on kitchen counterspace, which the 23SS had and the 21SS virtually has none.

We've had ours for nearly 10 years now.

It's ours...

We couldn't pass it up! Thanks for your help and support. We're enjoying our first night in it tonight, just N of Klamath Falls, OR. We're already so pleased!!! The previous owner took great care of it. He upgraded and modded the dickens out of this beauty, from LED lights all around to a slick shower head/controls. Anyway, I just had to say, Thanks again! You helped more than you know!
