You have a Class C RV. You need to know the Ford Van type for specs on the Chassis part (motor, running gear etc.). A Chilton's book for the Van Chassis will be a good thing for you to get. Usually the VIN will tell the parts store about those things. You should have a plate on the van body (mine is located on the driver's side door post, next to the Vehicle manufacturer's plate) that tells who finished the "unfinished" vehicle. If you have an "orphan", you may never find any manuals. Given the age of your RV, you most likely have had all original equipment replaced at least once. I e-mailed the manufacturer of our AC unit with the serial # and they told me when it was manufactured. You should be able to do this with pretty much all your equipment and many of the manufacturers can give you links to online owner's manuals.

The Yellowstone name is currently sold by Gulstream. You might try them and see if they can get any information. For the chassis, you can get the information from Chilton's Manuals on the Ford Club van chassis. I am not sure if the E-series was in production in 1976.

I have ran across a manual that was in my 1986 Ford E350, YellowStone Class C you may find helpful. On the top of my manual, or owners guide, it says, A VYQUEST company Inc. I hope this helps some. I am also trying to find items to restore my unite and am having problems finding and doing so. If you have any info please share. Thanks
