Congratulations you got it!! I'm not sure what device you're using (laptop, smartphone etc) but through the app there a "+" sign at the top right while in reply mode. It has the option for pics or web link after you tap it. Looking forward to the pics.

?????????? This one is an 83.

On another note, I have asked elsewhere. The chassis on this Vogue II does not look like a typical GM motorcoach chassis. It more resembles a big rig semi tractor. Huge frame members, shocks, airbags. It even has a device that was installed to raise the tag axle. The tire sizes also are big rig size. I've read that the diesel coaches had bus chassis. Does anyone know if you could order bus chassis with a gas engine ? Also, the paperwork I have on the rebuild of the replacement of the orginal 454 with a new 502 crate engine (carburetor) seems to me that the trans is an Allison. Again, something you'd find on a diesel rig. This coach appears to have been a custom build. The mechanicals running gear etc do not line up with standard items. Is there any place I could run the VIN to see what the orginal build was ?
Would gladly join a Vogue owners group. I love the style of them, especially the older ones. You can tell it's a Vogue from a mile away.

Brian

Potential Vogue Group

SissyBoyBob,

Cheers to your for your desire to create a vogue Owners Club. COUNT ME IN! I have a 1989 Vogue Prima Vista, absolutely love it.

I know there used to be a "Vogue Country Club"; one can still find pages online for that club, but it seems be be inactive since 2012 or so. Maybe that name/club could be brought back to life? Or maybe a Yahoo group for Vogue owners? Another possibility might be RVillage.com; it's a fairly new site, and it might have the proper sub-structure in place to host such a group. I'll fully support you efforts to bring to life such a group. I think it would be cool as hell to have a Vogue get-together, exclusively Vogues.

Possible name of the club???: "Vogue Country Club", might need to get permission to re-use that name; "Vintage Vogues", since all Vogues are now vintage. Food for thought.

Again, kudos to you in advance for bringing this Vogue group to life!

Bryan

1989 Vogue Prima Vista

Below is a picture of our 1989 Vogue Prima Vista 40'. We purchased it from the original owners, who took great care of it all of it's life, always stored indoors. It is powered by a Detroit Diesel 6V92 mated with a ZF 5 speed transmission. 68k miles. It is completely original, inside and out, and in great condition. However, it is showing a bit "dated", with the mauve carpet and all. We have a major interior renovation planned for it soon, including porcelain tile flooring, new countertops to accommodate and induction cooktop, new frameless shower w/ glass-tile wall, flatscreen TV's, LED fireplace, and maybe a few more goodies.

Wookieerv,

I love the bar in your Vogue II. What all are you doing in your remodel? Where are your future travel plans?

Bryan

Thanks Bryan,

We've already pretty much completed the remodel. We replaced carpet, upgraded to a double door fridge, painted cabinets, replaced original mini ice machine with a wine cooler fridge, rebuilt bunks in bunk room (it had 3 bunks and we needed 4) replaced bathroom sink, installed washer & dryer (it was already plumbed for them), replaced copper pipes with pex, redid a bunch of electrical wiring, fixed a ton of stuff... so much! haha
