Most units there look like this.

What do I look out for when buying a used mobile home?
Tomorrow I will be viewing a couple used manufactured homes at an RV resort park. Despite the units being quite close to each other, the center grounds and lake are gorgeous, I'd own both the home and the little plot of land the unit sits on, and the monthly fee for the grounds, pools, clubhouse, my water bill, cable, and such is low for So CA. The home is similar to the one in this picture, as are most at the park, and all have about 400 sq ft of interior space. Most date from the 80s or so. I'm hoping not to soon find I have to shell out a lot for some major repair besides fresh paint. What in particular should I be looking for when I walk through those two units? I asked and the owners told me there is no problem with the roof, plumbing, and electricity; the owners seem like decent, honest seniors who are snow/rain birds grown too old or now widowed and no longer interested in making the long annual trip to CA when their own state gets very cold/wet. BTW this would not be my home, but mainly a place just to crash or take a swim when I'm in town once or twice weekly and too tired to drive back to my rural home. (Condos and apartments are too costly for this, as is staying at nice hotels, while staying in cheap hotels often makes me feel a bit unsafe. This 55+ RV park has gated security and other safety features.)
