oh ya, i just started this acc. on here, and still trying to figure everything out, bare with me.ha..I ripped out the table and little dinet set. Im 6'6 and couldnt fit in there, so I took it out, and lots more room, altho the boards behind look pretty rough, ill replace that next prolly and when its done, im looking at either some kinda futon couch or maybe two small recliners to replace it with.but here are some more pictures...Im sure this isnt the correct milage from the looks of the wear and tear on her, but it sure is nice to think so. looks pretty rough and needs replaced..Ill get there.lots more room.altho the board behind it are damaged as well. ill get some more pictures on here in a bit.I have to run for a bit.thanks for looking

We sold this one in 2003 and bought a 1995 Holiday Rambler Endeavor, which was sold in 2012 when we bought our present DP. This one is one of my favorites.
Very nice pics of the HR

Hey and I like the Studebaker there too.... Some tlc... I have a '77 Jamboree on a Dodge chassis... the things I had to do was put shocks and wheels and tires on it... drove it from So Cal to here in South Carolina with out a hitch... the tranny needs service and the drive shaft rebuilt, the center carrier bearing is shot.... the only changes in the interior was the replacement of the fridge to a straight A/C one.... happy trails!!!

I posted in the other thread my opinion on the seatbelts, ftr. As for the odometer, I'd bet it's safe to say that's probably accurate. Most MHs suffer their biggest "wear and tear" when they're sitting, not when they're being used. 90k on a model of that vintage wouldn't be that uncommon at all so take comfort in that fact. I'm sure it's exempt as far as the DMV is concerned but that doesn't stop the odo from working, does it. Perfect example as to why I recommend people pay less attention to the odometer and more to the coach when shopping for a used unit.

You'll be very happy when you're done with that coach as those "eyebrow winnies" are still cool. Best of luck!

THANKS EMONEY..and I do love the eyebrow turners, hears a picture of the Caddy i traded it for it, I paid 1000 for the caddy, drove it everywhere,rain,snow or shine, I drove it from Minnesota all the way around lake michigan back across wi and home. almost 3000 miles..within a month. no problems.no oil. lots of gas.haha..but turning heads the whole way. I like the older models anything i think, not only are they head turners, its sure easy to make convo.I sure miss my caddy tho. I added this grill, Its a custom Caddy grill.. I havent seen too many other caddies around this year with this type of grill, most are small and orginal.seeing this in your review mirror up close to your bumper really puts brake lights on. and this is/was my baby..900 dollar white wall tires with less than 100 miles on tires. on her right before i got rid of her. and yes the photo looks as if im moving..I do photography.

Good choice on the '73 Brave. I also think the mileage is probably correct. We picked up a '75 Chieftain a few years ago and it only had 55k miles or so. We put less than 1k a year on it so it just doesn't add up very quickly. Caddy looks very nice as well. I sold our '82 Series 75 last year after owning it for 14 years.
