1977 Champion

Hello fellow enthusiasts. I am brand new to the game and I am hoping you can help me run down some information on my 1977 Champion with a Chassis by Dodge.

Currently I am in desperate need of some new rotors and I have been unable to locate them through vigorous searching.

Does anyone in cyber RV space have any knowledge of this 1977 Champion?

Thanks,

Highway...

Looks like you've got yourself into a project.
Do you have any info on the front axle weight rating . From the picture , the rotor isn't that much different from those Dodge used on 1 ton duallies all through the 90s , but you have to be exact. No info cast into the inside buried in the rust flakes , Budd as a maker ?, min. thickness ?
Could you re-post the pictures with a ruler for scale or list the rotors outside diameter and offset measurements.
OK, just looked again , are the floor tiles 12" square ?

First step is to ID the Dodge Chassis version (M300, M400, M500, or M600). That looks like a M300 rotor though

For a M300 chassis:
NAPA P/N 4885604
Centric P/N 121.67003
EBAY:
121.67003 | eBay


If you have a Dodge M400 chassis let me know as it is a different P/N.

Hmm, that may be a M400
Centric P/N 120.67011



Originally in 1973 Dodge used the M350 designation for the M400 chassis so all the aftermarket sources started using that reference. In 75 Dodge decided to change that to M400 and said that would apply back to all M350 chassis also. Well, the aftermarket did not follow that path and primarily kept the M350 designation. A few did roll over to include both designations. For M400 rotors though, you need to use the M350 designation so,
EBAY: Dodge M-350 rotor | eBay

Dave, hats off . the M-400 looks to be the one and I don't think anyone could ask for better, info than what you have provided.
Highway , keep track of Dave , he's your man.

Thanks

Dave, it looks like you were correct. It seems to be an M-400 and I was able to find a Guy in Mass.who had the rotors. The rotors and hubs are supposed to be balanced together.....any ideas on that. No one around here even has a machine with a post long enough to balance them together. Thank you very much. Now we should be able to make our trip to Redwood's NP. in a few weeks.

Highway,


You might be interested in the service manual for your champion. It's very detailed and available for purchase over on the classic rv website below:

First I have heard of that. Not a clue on who could do that unless it is a truck shop. I did not have that done when I replaced a rotor 10 years ago.
Digital versions of the Dodge Chassis and Parts Manuals are also available in the site store over at Classic Winnebagos.
