No they were built on a Crown bus chassis then assembled by professional craftsmen working for a company. Not some joe blow who buys a old grayhound and throws in some homedepot cabinets in it. I'm sure you know alot more of the Mitchell history than me since you own one. I was actually researching them for some time. I think they made one of the best rvs

Let me tell you they are built like a little brick sh*t house, I had to replace a heater hose that the mice had eaten holes in the tubing. I had to remove the seats at the dining table and each bench was screwed into a 3/4" plywood platform mounted to the frame. they were angle screwed in with 3" wood with 3" wood phillips flat head screws. Everything was so tight you needed a small rubber mallet to tap the wood apart. The under belly pan was removed to have access to the tubing that heated the flooring fuel, gray, black water and fresh water tank. They thought of everything during construction.
