1990 Shasta 30 foot Motorhome help

I have a 1990 30 foot Shasta Motorhome. I need to replace the front brake calipers but I have no idea what kind of frame it is. I think it has a Chevy 454 in it.

If it has the 454, its built on a Chevy P30/32 chassis.

P30 frame

I have also been told that the P30 didnt come out until much later, that the 1990's used bread truck frames. Is there a way to find out?

Take a Caliper down to your friendly NAPA and tell them that you "need a couple of these".

Your 1990 is on a P30/32 (depends on who's talking) "bread-truck" frame, okay? The P30 frame was used from the early 80s (maybe earlier?) well into the late 90's.

Smile Yep, you were right

It was a P30 bread-truck frame. My local Auto Zone had them in stock for $24.00 each. Wound up having to replace one brake line as well. The calipers were very easy to get off and back on. The hardest part of the entire job was wrestling with the tires. But its all done and I'm ready to hit the road.
