85 Pace Arrow Eleganza -- what chassis??

Can anyone help tell me what chassis is under my 85 Pace Arrow Eleganza V29 Model?

I need to have some chassis, steering and brake work done, but local part store needs to know what chassis it has, since they don't have RV books.

Thanks for any help.

If you have a Chevy engine you have the P-30 chassis.

My rig is identical to yours, only 1884. It's a P-30 chassis, but you probably already know that. It has 82K miles and I've put on about 22K in the 16 years I have owned it. I put ZDDP in with the oil to spplement the the Zinc they no longer put into todays oil. Since we don't have Catalytic converters there is no proplem.
Just thought I'd pass that along.

Just ran/completed a test on "Delo 400 LE 15-40" and all is perfect.....
Delo has 1300 ppm of ZDDP.
Old oil in use was "Royal purple" 15-40 which is a very good oil also, Through the high desert heat (above 110) the Delo never varied except when the RPMs did.
At cruise (58 MPH-2800 RPM) the pressure remained at 49 PSI and the idle pressure was 39 PSI, Driving over the hill into Redlands which was 25 cooler the oil pressure increased to a steady 51 psi and remained that way until I stopped in Anaheim hills RV park....
Delo is sold at Walmart..

My Itasca is a 83 (454) 33' long and I have NO idea what the GVWR is.
The 4 wheel disk brakes work fine towing a "Chebby HHR" which weighs in at 3120 pounds with a full tank of fuel....
