That makes my 1991 Fleetwood Flair 26R bonafied. Just bought it last year. We moved up from a 1979 19-ft Excel travel trailer. I like working on them and have already done a lot on the Flair. A lot of good info on this site. Thanks to all.

Any Class 'A' that is 20 years or older and still road ready is DEFINATELY vintage imho! (our old girl would still pull the house of the foundation given the proper leverage...)

The older RVs just get better with age.

In Michigan a vehicle is considered eligible for antique plates after 25 years. There are even some MHs around with antique plates ( Historic Vehicle ) because the fee is so cheap. Can be as low as $35 for a non-expiring plate.

The only limitation on collector plates here in Wisconsin is not driving in the month of January. Not usually a month I would want to drive the old girl anyway but if I wanted to you are allowed to get temporary permits for $1 per day.

Am I in the right place?

Hi, All!

I'm new here- is 20 yrs the only "vintage" breakpoint, or is there a (sub?) forum I should be taking my 1952 31 ft. "Angel" TT to?
Like maybe a "let's-face-it-it's-OLD-and-looks-it" type place.
For me AND my trailer!

Francesca

To some well-heeled owners of the upscale latest RV's, ANYTHING older (or less expen$ive!) than theirs is not only vintage, but disgustingly antique...

Some RV parks have the same attitude...

Several years ago we met an older couple in a well worn GMC motorhome. They were retired and wanting to travel a bit and bought the coach fairly cheaply. He rebuilt the engine, transmission and suspension first. He had done most of the interior ...beautiful cabinet work. She had replaced all of the upholstery and the flooring was next. He said the last thing he would worry about is the exterior. It was clean and mechanically sound.

They were having a great time and you could not have ask for better neighbors. Some of the worst neighbors we have ever met were a group on Monaco owners. So you can not judge the book by the cover.
