Saw this listed for sale. Trying to understand if is factory siding.
looks like Filon on the side and aluminum on the underbelly and front bulkhead.

Never seen this before... Lance owners, chime in:

I parted out Lance 1161 and there were no screws on the siding to hold it.
They used glue (and a good one) to hold the siding to the frame + corner molding.
Can't vouch for all MY, but I doubt this is original as such screws bring high leak risk.
How is the roof?

The posting images did not show a roof. The interior looked very good!

Not factory. Someone has done a major remodel / re-skin.

The back side still has the original aluminum siding.
The rest is not original. There is no telling from the pictures, how good or bad a repair job it is, what damage prompted it, or how well it has been repaired.
Every single one of the screws is a potential leak.

This was a question?

For clarification: I am not affiliated with the seller nor am I in the market for another TC; it will be a while before I get another.

Just happen to see this one for sale and was curious, hence the posting here.

The screws probably are not stainless so the caulking applied to the threads loses its seal from the rust. That's if caulking was applied to the threads as should be done in weather conditions.
