Looks great considering it's 22 years old. Appears to have a similar interior to the '88 Superchief I had last year. Mine had twin beds too and yours is in MUCH better shape.

Awesome Shape! Somebody loved that a long time before it fell in your hands. Will be the 'talk' of the campground I'm sure!

You will have a great time with this MH. I would not know what year it is and most won't either. Good find!

Be sure and do a through maintenance check changing fluids, check fan belts, check hoses, check brakes and bearings, etc. If the tires are 5 to 7 years old, plan on replacing them.

The rig looks to be in good shape from physical appearance.

Very nice, looks well cared for. We bought a 1990 Mallard with 54000 on it and our first trip was to Fort Wilderness at Disney in Florida, 1100 miles one way. Had a GREAT time with no issues! I think you will enjoy your trip too. Just do a complete maintenance check up on it before you go.

Good luck and enjoy,
Ted

Wow! Looks like you got a "stored under cover" honey- look at those stripes!

You'll have wonderful times in her.

Luv those old Winnie Chieftains. Great coaches. I almost bought one when we first started looking but it wasn't in that great of condition.

Enjoy your "new" motorhome!
