We loved our old Raven, other than wanting the diesel, we probably would have kept it. Haven't seen or heard of another one since we sold ours. I believe they were an upper end gas coach in their day. Have fun with yours.

We have been having fun with it. Very few problems to date. Bought it used a few years ago.
We are in the process of making some changes for boondocking. Thanks for Responding

Firan bought the factory and some of the names from Champion Motor Homes I believe. They were owned by a Canadian Company, which also owned Glendale, Golden Falcon, and Titanium trailers along with a Class C motorhome Royal Classic???and headquartered in Strathroy Ontario.
The company was actually owned by one for the Firestone Boys from Tire fame and he lives in the Toronto/Hamilton area .
They closed down the Class A division of Firan in the US after a few years.
The Firan moulds etc were then picked up by Forest River and used in their motorhome division.
In the End the Firan Canadian group closed completely maybe 5 years ago after the company was sold to the company executives.

THank You FC Ontario for that, I knew they were Canadian owned but not the history that you have.
It is a fun old "Bus" to have.

I just got back to this post while cleaning out some old emails. Sorry I did no see it before.
We have had no trouble getting parts, the chassis is all GM/Chev and Workhorse. The coach is standard RV Parts. In fact the only thing on the coach we had to fix is the ice maker which is now a universal fit one from Ebay.
