RV Mechanic says a 24' Georgie Boy is rare, maybe collector item. Thoughts?

Looked at a 1983 Georgie Boy Air II with 45,000 original miles

Inside was almost mint, very good shape

The owner has never taken it out, says he doesn't have enough money for gas.

Owner didn't know what any of the switches did, doesn't even know what motor is in it.

I'm having this mechanic check it out on monday

thoughts on georgie boys or what the mechanic said about 24 footer georgie boys?

i can post pics

Moho has 45K on it. Where did they come from?? Hard to believe current owner bought it to hold their drive down during a strong wind.

I doubt if it can be classified as a collectors item.

They're unusual, but I doubt seriously anyone is going to collect them? I sure wouldn't pay any extra for it, or expect better resale, for that reason? That floor plan was popular in the Class C's for a couple of years. The problem with it is access to the bed, or rather the lack of it. Fine if by yourself. Not so good if somebody is being crawled on getting in or out.

Thumbs up I'll say Vintage

I say go for it. We bought our 82 last season and have not had anything go wrong except fuel filters.
It sat pretty much the last 6 years, I found a small parts store under the couch after we bought it, new belts,hoses,head lights, fuel pump,spark plugs,(and 2 for the gennie),distributor cap,rotor.
didn't see any new tires though!!!!
She cleaned up real nice and the interior is almost in new condition.She had 44,000 miles and now has 48,500. Good luck

Coachmen still has the owners manual here:
Owners Manuals - Coachmen RV
Plug in 1983 and select GeorgieBoy Motorhomes- (They are all in one manual)
Looks like a copy of a copy but may answer some questions..

I had a 90 Georgie Boy and my present Landau, both have given good service.. Enjoy
