We're thinking about buying a Renault Traffic(Elddis Eclipse

Hi all,

We are looking at buying a 1992 Renault Traffic, Elddis Eclipse motorhome. Coachbuilt, 43,000 miles. Very tidy inside and out. 2.0 Litres, petrol. Going for 5995.

Only thing is we noticed that the tray underneath the engine is covered in fresh oil. We are wondering what this could be from and whether it is minor or major. We are gettting a local mechanic to look at it, but being a small village, the local mechanic does the MOT's for the guy who has the camper, so we're not sure if we'll be able to take his word on what the oil issue might be, but the AA is very expensive to go look at an older motorhome.

Any ideas on where the oil might be from, or advice?
Many thanks,
Rachael and Ryan
