    Dont know of any specific points other than the front chassis cross member which rot through....easy repair with no welding involved.
    check for damp.
    Dont rely on a visual check, Stick your head in cupboards etc....if it smells musty its probably damp so worth getting it checked properly.

    Thanks for that, I am going armed with a damp meter! Sorry got another question (and probably a thousand more) is it a good idea to join the Caravan club, Caravan and camping club. both or neither
