Greetings all & Merry Christmas!
My wife and I purchased our first motorhome this fall. It is a 1973 TEC. 25' built on a Chevy P-30 chassis. It is "vintage" but very well kept and loaded with character. I'm wondering if anyone has information on the company [I understand they're out of business]or model type so I can learn more about her.
Thanks. I'll be asking lots more questions as we learn about this RV'ing stuff. We're excited and thank you for patience in advance!

Welcome hollhoek to irv2 and the Vintage forum.
Congrats on your new old coach.
Some good looking coach you have there would like to see some pics, they could be added as a new fixed topic at top of forum so others can see what a little work may result.
Enjoy the forums and post often.

Welcome to this community and to RV'ing!!

"vintage, but full of character". . . Yup, that sounds about right. Usualy the vintage RV's have a lot more character than the shiny new ones. I am sure that you will have meany miles of enjoyment out of it. On top of this, you will generally have fewer/lower payments, so you will have more money to actually use your RV. You may get fewer "bells and whistles", but that also means less to break down, and easier repairs if they do. What engine do you have in your rig? Chevy generally makes a good chasis, from what I have heard. Post often, there are lots of people here ready to help. Even if we do not know your specific RV, many of the items inside are pretty standard across several companies. Many may also have already been replaced with newer units.
