question on trailer male plug

Hello group, I'm new to this section but also have a vintage Coachmen. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what plug came with a 95 towlite hilo 24 foot. I am going to pick one up on Tuesday and need to know if it is a 7 or 8 pin plug. My truck is a 7 pin and I am hoping there are no surprises here. No one is around to call until Tuesday
Thanks in advance
Charlie

Well, I hope this one doesn't need much fixing, it is in good shape and never leaked. The 79 Coachmen I have I bought to use as a "guest room" as our house only has 3 rooms. It is in good shape for a 1979. I just redid the interior in the front because of water damage. All caused by one clearence light leaking. As you can see by my number of posts about it I didn't have much trouble. (so far)
(by the way, we have friends in Conover and Asheville)

Hi Mark, I'm in Ohio on the PA line right below Youngstown, but good friends in Samoyed rescue in NC and one fellow railroader I want to meet that is in NC. We bothe belong to the same model railroad forum. I'm retired, I think he is too but does volunteer work.
I got a call from the gal I got the camper from and she checked the plug so I'm OK with a 7 pin. I didn't expect her back until Tue.

Thanks again for the help

Charlie

Hi group
We picked the camper up yesterday and everything went off without a problem. I even had the right size hitch ball at my sons house that I had loaned him several years ago.
It tows very well with no sway (50 miles up and down hills and winding roads) so I will see if I can get away without any extra weight for a hitch.
It came with a complete set of owners manuals too
My only complaint was the cost of the "in transit" tag from Pennsylvania. It cost $39 (I save the $11 writing fee because I belong to AAA). They won't issue a $5 tempory tag to an out of state sale.
Well, they got their 39 bucks but guess what state I won't go camping in.....
Cheap Chuck
