Nice web site, I have used others in the past. I like the fact you have a "Vintage" site. I am on my 3rd restroation and ps, my last. I have been doing this so that when the time comes, I will have bucket loads of knowledge when I purchase a newer one. I have a 26' Travelcraft, with a 440 Dodge engine in it. This was the last year Dodge was used in MH's. I will say this, Travelcraft has been out of business since the early 80's and it doesn't surprise me. I purchased it in 2006 for $1,000. I really thought I was getting a deal. Well some $3000 later it is finally something I can be proud of. I go to NASCAR events and camp in the infield. I go by myself and it's so important to have everything easy. I look forward to learning from all of you. Does anyone out there have a Travelcraft?

Sandy's440, welcome to iRV2. We are glad to have you join us. You have brought back some memories of our first class A motorhome. It was a 78 Champion Titan on the M500 Dodge chassis and the 440-3 industrial engine. It was one heck of a motor and we had a lot of fun in the old coach for the three years we had it. Good luck in your restoration project and maybe we will see you at the races one day, although we don't go like we used to. Take care and keep us informed as to the progress.
