Default Rust - where to look?

I am in the market to buy an M715. Where are the key places I should look for problematic rust? I realize there be surface rust thatís no big deal. Thanks everyone.

Bad rust will be easy to spot on these trucks.

I will add a location that is kind of hidden.
Mine was rusted out pretty bad in the cowling, behind the top of the firewall, to the point that water would run down on your feet.
Major cause of that in my truck was from a huge, tightly packed mouse nest.
Stunk to high heaven trying to clean that out.
