Thumbs up How many Vogue MH DP Owners on IRV2

Hi My name is Dean
I'm interested talking to owners of Vogue Motor Homes built by Mitchell.
I own a 1990 Vogue 37' Prima Vista DP with a 3208T, 300HP V8 Caterpillar engine, with a 4 speed Allison Transmission w/retarder. This Bus is built on a Crown Chassis and weighs in at 32042 lbs, 150 gal fuel, 100 gal fresh water, 50 gal gray and black water.

Proud Vogue owner

Hi,
Have you had many responses? I am a Vogue owner in Canada and would like to make contact with other owners to. I have had our coach for 13 years, and do most of my own repair. Still learning as I go.

Hi Dave!
I have not had any responses except you. my bus is 24 yr old I've had her for (2) yrs I'm learning also. What year is yours Dave? and what model and engine do you have with her? I was lucky I have all the manuals and wire diagrams for the Prima Vista. The previous owner has done some modifications by adding extra filters and a watering misting system on the radiator.

Hello fellow "Voguers"

Hi all,

It's great to see, limited as it is, some chat about our great Vogues. We have a 1989 (pre-Mitchell I believe) Vogue Prima Vista 40' w/ a Detroit Diesel 6V92 350 hp & ZF 6 speed transmission. It has 60k miles. We purchased it this past June from the original owners, and absolutely love it thus far. This coach is nothing but quality all the way around!

Our future plans include replacing the carpet with some sort of hard surface flooring (possibly a tile of some sort), TV upgrades, some reupholstery, and a few other little things.

In my snooping around the net, I've learned that there used to be a Vogue club, but it seems to be inactive. :(

Here's a link to a couple pics of our Vogue:

Your Vogue is beautiful I own the 1990 Vogue Prima Vista 37' same color as yours with a 3208T Cat engine, wish I had a 6 speed transmission, we are planning on changing the carpet and hardwood flooring to a granite floor and TV's . I'm looking to replace the side mirrors due to cracks in the housing. Hopefully we will meet up on the road next year.
Good luck and drive safely

Hi Dean,

You mentioned replacing the mirrors; that's on my list as well, for the same reason. I've been looking at "InVue" mirrors from Ramco, they have built in cameras.

Keep in touch,
Bryan

Hello Daniel,

I did in fact by our Vogue from a "Tom", not sure if it's your good friend Tom. But probably not too many Toms out there that recently sold a wonderful old Vogue Prima Vista.

Tom and Joan seem like great people. I hope to be able to show them our Vogue in a few month s after the upgrades are finished.

Bryan

It would be Tom and Joan allright and they are indeed very good friends. I met your Vogue (and Tom and Joan) at Hilton Head Island some 10-15 yrs ago. And I remember so well when Tom was proud to announce his Vogue turned "voting age". Very well maintained coach, waxed every yr...

I am guessing it's in good hands!

Hi Bryan
I purchased this Vogue from Dr. Fadell's wife he had passed due to cancer. His son also a doctor in Las Vegas asked me if I was interested in the bus which he could not use, we meet his family in Wickenburg Az. fell in love with the bus and drove it home that day. I have used this beautiful bus when I went to Loma Linda for prostate cancer therapy which lasted 2 1/2 mo. We live in it with 3 dogs and had a great time. On the Hwy you get a lot of looks and comments when come into rest stops and CB. This baby is hand crafted like a palace.

Well, our Vogue is certainly more than "voting age" now, in fact, she's even past "drinking age".

Do you still go to Hilton Head Motorcoach Resort? Tom told me it's a pretty nice place. We are headed that direction over the upcoming Christmas holiday; our destination is Tybee Island, travel weather permitting.

Hi Dean,

You're right about our Vogues commanding lots of looks when out and about; they certainly have a classic & sophisticated look to them. I'm mostly impressed by their grip on the road at 80mph driving down the highway. Prior to this, we had a 1998 Beaver Contessa, a very nice coach, but nothing compared to this Vogue in terms of quality and build.

Bryan

Hi again Bryan,
I just spent a month at HHI (in fact on Tom's lot).
Might be a little cold at the end of December, the resort is super but we also like the surrounding area a lot. The island is small and well preserved, takes about 30 minutes to circle in a car, many fine restaurants, groceries bicycle trails, 12 mi long beach (ride your bike on beach), everything nearby, 23 golf courses...
My favorite spot! If you do visit Tybee Island, make sure you go in the resort at HHI for at least a couple of days!
Daniel
