Information on 1974 Chinook 5th Wheel

New here and Looking for information for 1974 30' 5th Wheel. Anyone with any Sales/Floor Plans or Manual? Here is what I can tell you what I have. Has 2 Battery's, one for the lights, water pump, DSI water heater, and 8 track player with 4, 6" speakers. hahahaha 8Track. Second one for Starter to 4kW Owan GenSet. on the Left side of front. GenSet on right side of front. Then doors on the right and left "side" front that hold 7gal Propane Tanks. On the Right side going back some is the Small window to the bathroom, Inlet and outlet for my Suburan Furnace 30K BTU forced air with 3 of 4 ducts used. (Cleaned out hives and birds nests) ran for the last week -2 days while camping now pilot will not stay lit. Wheels, above that is power cord for 30amp service, window for kitchen. behind that is my Surban 6Gal Water heater with DSI. inside under counter is my Fresh water holding tank, 12v Water Pump. Then my window to living area Left side Gas Tank filler, Propane tank1, door inside, wheels, above is outside access for refrigerator, inside refrigerator and 12v charger/converter, behind that is my living area window. In the rear have wrap around window in the Rear Fiberglass back. Oh and inside, next to the stairs leading to the front beds is a ironing Board. haha. Anyone for some Ironing while camping?

Used to be white on top (Fiberglass roof to the Alum siding) green, yellow, white, yellow and white. The white paint on the aluminum has washed off down to silver (would like to get this back white again) and last time I washed it some of the yellow and green is trying to come off. Would like to try and find replacement Decals.

Love my 1974 over my 1985 Komfort.

Will post pictures as I can.

Nice, those old Chinooks were neat rigs and that curved roof cap design kept their truck camper line lasting long years into the future .
