Can we take the seller to small claims court if we purchased a used camper and the flooring is rotten?

Question Details: We purchased a used camper from an individual. We tore out the carpet which was really old and rotting. We discovered that the floor was rotted out in the bathroom and under the kitchen cabinets. We called to ask to return the camper since it is not usable. The man said he would work on getting the money and call us back. He never did call and won't answer his phone. I sent him a letter requesting that he call. We got a letter from his lawyer stating that the original owner did not have to take the camper back because he sold it as is. Even though the owner admitted that he didn't know. Can we get our money back?
