Surely it really rather depends on the source of the dampness? If it's a leak from piping or splashing from over filled toilet cistern tank then it can be stopped with little chance of a repeat. If it's a leaking body joint then that can be sealed, but at 14 years old similar sealing on other joints might be about to 'let go' and repeat the problem. There again, all the rest of the joints may be fine and this incident is just a one-off which won't be repeated.

You have to remember that coachbuilt motorhomes are basically caravans on a chassis cab and whilst many last much longer than 14 years, there are very few caravans that are leak free at that sort of age.
