We were able to find a brochure for our Rexhall on line. Do a Google search for the year and model. Another possibility would be a brochure that is part of the photos for a Rexhall that is for sale on RV Trader. I've seen a few included as part of the ad. Finally, post the year and model here. Someone may have a brochure that they could scan and e-mail to you. Good luck!

Somewhere here I have the VHS tape and brochure for our '97.

Reminds.me I need to grab the video off the tape and onto a DVD. When I get that I'll make sure to share it here on iRV2.

Don't!! Now that Rexhall is an 'orphan' brand, parts are near impossible to obtain for special items. ('Standard' chassis items MAY be available,,, but not always.)

I wonder what it is that makes you say that it is hard to find parts, most of the difficult stuff is based on the chassis, and they have web sites that contain almost all of the information that you would need for that, then the inside must be what you are concerned about, and all of what is inside my Rexhall Anthem is pretty much standard issue RV stuff that also has information available on the web. I needed some window cranks since I had managed to wreck a few of them, and I even found them on the web from the original manufacturer. The toughest thing that I had to find was the control panel that is under the drivers side instrument panel, and Jim Rex still happened to be at the 23rd Street location prior to its closure and he told me where to get that, and I think that I could probably have found it, that is, if I knew that I needed it anyway. I don't recall having any trouble with actually getting most anything that I have needed for my coach, and I will also say this, I absolutely love me coach! It is a diesel pusher with a Cummins ISB and an Allison 5 speed transmission, 34 feet long with all of the "stuff" in it that I need. By today's standards it is probably a rather spartan interior in that there is not a lot of very fancy stuff in it, and that is another reason that I love it! I don't have to worry about someone tracking dirt into it, it is easily cleaned, and I don't have a lot of high end equipment in there that I have to worry about taking immaculate care of, and it has everything that I need, (save perhaps washer and dryer for which there is not room). I could not have made a better purchase as far as I am concerned, but if you are worried about it being an orphan and you don't have any of the skills that would be necessary to figure out what is wrong, if anything, then maybe you would want a manufacturer that could be accessed for any information that you need, but I can tell you, they aren't likely to be a huge help once the warranty period is over and if you are buying used as I did, good luck. I have changed a number of things on my coach that needed to be changed or repaired and in all of the cases, between myself and my son, we have been good with all of it. The things to worry about most in my opinion are the tires, number one, and service of the engine and transmission from a service agency that you can trust, (I have one that I think is amazing!), and then hope that you made a good choice.

I agree with tlstory on this one. I bought a 97 Rexhall Aerbus 3650xl last summer and it has been a great coach. It had just under 35k when I bought it and we just rolled over 38k.

I have had a number of improvements and small things to fix, but that happens on any coach of any age. As far as being an orphan, there are a number of coach manufacturers out there that have gone out of business. My father has a 06' Coachman, and it has been much harder to find parts for than my Rexhall. But having said that, most of the items on my coach are fairly standard and not particular to Rexhall (I believe they, as other manufacturers do, sourced a great number of their building components). The F53 chassis and 460 engine were so widely used that parts can be found rather easy for them as well. The only parts I had to really hunt for were the brake pads for my Rexhall's tag axle. Ford did not install the tag axle on the F53 chassis and so I had to do some digging to find the manufacturer and get parts.

We love our coach and seriously considering getting into a Rexhall 3955 (for the diesel). I would not discourage anyone from looking at Rexhall, but as with any RV purchase......check it out thoroughly and be ready for projects!

howdy brother '97 Aerbus 3650 XL.

I would have probably bought the diesel had i found one. After enough research. The drawback is. of course, im pretty sure i can't do more than simple maintenance on a diesel. That makes the repairs truly costly.

Thinking of it i haven't read much about Rexhall diesels here or elsewhere.

I like the entry door on diesels at the passenger door. That reclaims a decent amount of floor space wasted on the entry door on mine which is located behind the passenger seat.

Oh, if your door is behind the passenger door and your awning is mounted right there too blocking the door from opening all the way? If so do you have the bar used to latch door open? Mine was not there. If i see one i should be able to kludge one together.
