On a Casita over the outer fiberglass bottom is a layer of OSB that is fiber glassed over then the carpet.

Water can get between the fiberglass layers in a number of places and cause the OSB that's just wood chips glued together to come apart. That causes soft spots in the floor. On a scamp there is no fiberglass bottom and it's a bigger problem then a floor with soft spots when the same OSB deteriorates.

One place is around the cups in the floor where the chrome posts set for the table.
Another source for water leakage is how the refrigerator is vented allows water to enter and there's not a good way for it to exit.

I would not be alarmed if you find a couple.

Lisa congrats on the Casita. Sounds like you got a really good deal. Often as others stated. What sounds to good to be true usually is. But not always. Sometimes people purchase them, keep them for a few years and sell them not knowing that these eggs holds their value. You could easily double your money on it today if its in the shape you say it is. Welcome to the egg family. Show us some pictures.
