New 1979 Sportscoach

I just purchased a 1979 Sportscoach this past weekend. I need some help getting to know the coach. Anyone out there have a similar coach? Ed/breadbug

First of all, Welcome to IRV2!! My SportsCoach is an '82 CrossCountry I believe was made by Coachmen. That being said, there is a lot of info on Yahoos' Vintage SportsCoach Owners Group, including owners' manuals and appliance manuals. Just sign up and download whatever you need. So far, they have had the best and most info available on the SportsCoach models. Finally, we need Pictures, man, PICTURES!!! LOL!!

The only one I have so far. As found pic. The interior is pristine and totally 1979. It's a rear bath. I did go on the vintage Sportscoach site and found a bunch of stuff. What they didn't have for download was the wiring diagram for the double battery setup and the coach wiring. I will upload more pics later today.
