Asked the local 3rd generation trailer builder/repair guy he said condensation will form inside tube if sealed or only mostly sealed. So they can rust from inside out. Said not unheard of for people to get steam jet burn if cutting through trailer tube with a torch. Tube gets hot, then torch cuts through and blast of steam comes jetting out.

its impossible to weld up anything in open air and end up with a true vaccum...sealed to the outside world, maybe.......but there's air in there and the humidity that was present.
