Just like a fish tip to tail. Some fishermen cheat. I would guess PO did to get cheaper license. What model is it?

I couldn't find the numbers on the frame but the Nebraska health department sticker is still on it and the numbers match the title.
Here is a pic of the title. Sorry its upside down. But notice how the 24' is just randomly placed on the title.

My '92 Allegro was called 27' by Allegro. But a tape measure from the front bumper to the back bumper showed it to be 32'. Somebody told me the living quarters was 27' (the two front seats and front dash weren't counted I guess).

I look at my coach and estimate that it's 56 feet long. DW says it really only 42 feet long.
Must be a guy thing.
