Signs of water leaks and wear of course, but anything else specific?
You would want to look for signs of water damage like soft spots in the flooring, peeling or bubbled wall or ceiling surfaces or water stains. You would also want to look for signs of walls or flooring being replaced or repaired.
If the exterior is fiberglass, look for cracks or repairs such as paint not matching or decals missing.
Some of the other things like others have mentioned...
Basic systems check to make sure the heat and AC work.
Does the water get hot?
Check the fuse panel for burned wiring ect...
lf at all possible, make a contract with seller to have the camper checked over by a dealer or qualified inspectorbefore the purchase.
Good luck, you'll do fine.
