I love it. It looks so Bee-fie.
I wouldn't mind finding one for my self. Saw a real beauty last summer @ a CG here in Minn. They were from TX, Gorgeous MH.
Thanks for sharing, not sure on age for MH's but mine is 33 yrs old this April and I feel it's a real classic/Vintage. Cars its 15 yrs old I believe .

Since smog checks are no longer required, the smog slug 460 got an upgrade so that it will Go Up an Upgrade.

I like it, The sky light is awesome and the other 2 windows on the front, nice.
The motor exceptional along with the ceiling.

It has turned out to be a fantastic find. I named it Nelson after the deceased previous owner,It just looked like a Nelson!!LOL
My 1980 FTX has a Cummins 555 and I actually found a Jake kit for it from a junker 504. Upgraded the trans to an MT 643 with lockup and installed the jake and it made a HUGE difference in stopping. You should be able to find a Jake heads for that 6v92 pretty easy. That's a VERY nice coach!

It's very distinctive, for a couple months after we bought it the old owners were getting messages that they saw them driving down the road. We bought it from a couple that shares our passion for Mountain Biking so alot of people in the biking community know the motor home. We almost had to put a sign in the door that said the previous owners don't live here anymore. When they had it, it was like the community camper for all there biking friends. Everytime we go camping we always get people saying how nice it looks for being 25 yrs old. Thanks for the compliment.

Here are some. Pics didn't come out that great. The coach had been sitting for 4 years and came with everything,dishes,pot's pans, coffee maker. Chest freezer/refrigerator in basement bay,slide out joey bed,etc.It has 2 a/c units with strip heat and 2 LP gas furnaces also gas waterheater. 250lb LP tank approx 50 gallons. 150 gal fuel tank. I have changed out all the indirect lighting from fluorescent to LED and replaced tires and every hose front to back.everything works a it should with the exception of the ice maker. i has a leaking water valve and the way it is designed looks to be problematic so i have it disconnected. It has a huge shower and cedar lined closets as well as corian counter tops.The original sales brochure shows it retailed for $310,500.00. I personally don't see it but someone did!!
