Size and weight of 80's class A 33'

Just purchased an 86 HR Imperial. It's 500 miles away and looking to get bids for uship. I need to estimate the width, height and weight of a 33' P30 rv.
Anybody help me out?

Dave: I have the Bounder version of that P30 and will get you some info for my 34 footer. My wife ran out to gather the info... there is a value called UVW (unloaded vehicle weight) 14,490 pounds on my model. This is the weight of the finished still empty model.

Your model should be close...

Thanks, I will use 15k as my estimate.

I had a friend fly up and drove 24 miles before the axle may have broke. Now trying to get it hauled home so I can fix it.
Bad luck!

Oh no!! So sorry to hear that...BUT!! Once you get her home, you're going to LOVE her!! WE have an '88 HR Presidential and couldn't be happier. We have been doing lots of updates and plan to restore the exterior. They don't make them like this anymore, so be proud to own a beautiful, well made classic coach that is sure to give you years of great memories!!...that is, as soon as you get her rolling again!

Also, I'm sure our coaches are very similar. We were fortunate enough to get the owner's manual with ours and would be happy to copy and pass anything your way....just ask!

My '89 Elandan is about 22ft 6in. It's a 37ft P30, but the wheelbase is the same for the 34ft and 37ft - they just added a tag axle.

If you can find the wheelbase of your RV, just add what you think the front overhang is. My front overhang is just under 5 feet.

Good luck on bringing her home!
