Hi,I have just purchased a 1988 Overland36 and am looking for a little history. I know mallard bought them in 89, mine is the same as the mallard but it has a metal roof not wood and rubber like on the 89s.
I will be living aboard full time mostly using it in the SE. It was very clean and well maintained and compared well with M/Hs 5to6 years newer. It is a ford 460,3speed on an oshkosh chasis and has many features that came on higher end coaches.
OK now where do i post from now on, am I a vintage, just turned 20 years old yes I wish I had just turned 20 but thats a different story, or in class A's.
This is my first M/H so there will be many questions.
Thanks Andy

Andy, WELCOME to iRV2.

At 20 years old, your rig qualifies for the Vintage forum, but you will probably have better results in the Motorhome forums.

Feel free to ask away as our members are most helpful!
