Thanks again for the info. So the ABS wont scare me away; but I do want to be prepared if I end up with one. If there are no visible cracks is it something you can just leave alone? Or would it make sense to apply something like grizzly grip as a preventative? I figured those awnings fail often. I'm not quite sure I understand how they're attached to the pup though. Is there a chance that it caused damage to something other than just the awning? I do usually have instant canopies we bring with us when camping. But I could see using a combination of one or two of those along with the awning on the pup as well. I'm hoping to go take a look at this 96 Fleetwood this weekend. Seems to be in pretty good condition overall. However, seller claims he has had it for 3 years and never once attempted to use propane or water; so I'm a bit concerned there. This one also seems to have very few amenities with no a/c no furnace etc. Seller is asking $1000 for that one but I wonder if it should go for less since it doesn't have much in the way of "extras". I've also been talking to someone who has a 1999 Viking that needs some work. He has yet been able to confirm which Viking exactly. Says the goshen lift system needs to be replaced . Claims the front spring is kinked. Also says there is a tear in the canvas which is also a bit dirty. I'm sure it can be quite expensive to replace the entire canvas, but how difficult might it be to clean this up and maybe fix just the problem area? Is that the lift cable/spring in the first photo? Seller doesnt even have a price he's looking for and is open to offers on this one. So the cheap side of me that knows I can probably fix this one is calling out. But I'm not sure else to be looking for on this one or what to expect to pay for the parts.
