My wife and I recently purchased a 76 FMC motorhome. Needs mostly some TLC and lots of elbow grease. It was a top of the line MH when new. Almost $60,000.00 in 76.

Looking forward to warmer weather and getting started on our new toy. )

I can see if your older rig is unkept and ugly but to outlaw them on age is rediculous

We have a 1976 bus conversion --- never had a problem in any RV park.

Also have a 1986 Airstream.

No problem.

Keep them lookin' new!

We love to see older RV's that are in great shape. While the newer ones have lots of fancy bells and whistles, the older coaches had some really innovative designs.

Since ours is offically 10 years old now, when we are ask, it just became a 1996 model and next yera it will be a 1997 model.
