Ever had a Cobra?

My wife and I just purchased a 29' 1993 Corsica by Cobra. It is my understanding that Cobra Industries folded in 1996. Has anyone ever owned a Cobra, or heard of them? I've yet to find any significant information.

Thank you.

The name Cobra has been used my many RV companies over the years, I don't really understand the attraction of a poisonous reptile to a name for a thing I'd camp in, but to each his own.

NADA has a little bit of info:

1996 Corsica by Cobra Price, 1996 Corsica by Cobra Values & 1996 Corsica by Cobra Specs | NADAguides

You probably won't find a manual for it, but they often don't give much detail anyway. You will be better served by noting the name and model # of each item in your RV and spending time on Google searching for component owner's manuals. Most all RVs are made up of a limited pool of parts, so manuals are usually available.

Cobra was best known, to me anyway, as a well built, but heavy coach. Though they generally used quality components, there's nothing else about them that really stood out.

Thank you, I noticed immediately that it is a very heavy coach. It sure gave my F150 a wake up call pulling it home through the Texas Hill Country. It seems to be constructed fairly well, it has held up pretty well for being 23 years old.

Cobra MH

Hi, I have a1990 29' Newport by Cobra with the 454 engine & 3 speed automatic. Bought it as a one owner 3 years ago, and slowly bringing it up to my standards. It is well built, and has all the creature comforts. As you mentioned, I could not find any information . Advice from a query on this forum led me to searching the web for information on all its components, I now have two binders of info: , one contains a chassis manual, and the second contains info on all the internal systems. A little time consuming to put together, but very helpful in doing maintenance. Part of the journey is learning about your new toy.
Its nice to know that I'm not the only Cobra owner out there.
Happy trails
