You have to look at opportunities like this with a plan B in case you find a fatal problem. The low hours are common on these military surplus units, it’s not hours of use but the age and no use is the problem. Sitting outside the elements take a toll. If you can get this reasonably and it runs and welds you did good. If the engine or generator are shot you have to get your money back from sale of trailer or repurpose it. Sale of good engine/generator components. The secret is to not get upside down with no way out
