Smile New member! Hello to all

Hello, thanks to a couple of guys that contacted me on craigslist to let me know about this site. I was on there seeking info on a Onan 5.0 RV GenSet generator. I had a buddy with a Winnebago style camper that's been abandoned in the woods on his property that's starting to cave in. He said it worked at one time about 10 years ago. That's the last time he used it. I asked him about it and I told him if I could get it to working I would give him 100 dollars. He agreed. I want to know if this is a good deal?, and can you get alot of life out of these aluminum case models? I've heard the cast iron ones are the best but I just don't want to spend alot of money on it if they don't last that long. Another thing would be needing info on the service manual for this model (especially the schematic on it). I can't believe that Onan wouldn't offer this for these old models online without having to buy a manual. My model info is
Onan model#5.OBGA-3CR/16004C
Any info would be much appreciated. I love the looks of the unit, just concerned if it worth messing with. Thanks again. Michael Flowers
