Does anyone know of a Tiger XL MH that was built on a Astro platform.I know I have my hands full with Baby,but I sure would love to get one of the Tiger XL's that was built on a Astro chassis.

Nope,not at all.If I had my choice between Ole Yellar and a Tiger XL-it would be the Tiger XL hands down.

BWT:the circuit I run is I leave Baby and the larger trailer at a fleamarket that runs more than one day a week(like two or three) and I travel with Ole Yellar and the vendor trailer to other single date fleamarkets returning to Baby.Sure would be great to have a second smaller MH at site on the single date fleamarkets.Food,coffee,etc all there without have the huge gas bill of traveling with Baby.

Well this general interest in Provan Tiger XL has turned into a quest to find one.I have learned alot since I started this thread.The XL's are the hard top version and the earliest ones was 1989.They are 16'ers.I am looking for one that is in need of a resto.Blown engines is not without question.I have posted on MSN Tiger motorhome owners group,here,amd expetditon site.The work on "Baby" continues for the use of a home base fulltimer RV.I expect the type of XL I will end up with will require a long term rework.So all current plans will go ahead.J/Y dogs of a XL is also not excluded from interest.Post up what you see and how I can contact anyone you know who has one needing help.The quest begins until I find one I can afford.

I don't mean to gravel,but I have this image of a XL setting in a J/Y in the southwest.I haven't seen nor heard of anyone talking about a MH J/Y's in the forum.Anyone knowing of a J/Y known for MH's please post.Given the age of this XL's it maybe one route to look into.

Thanks,

Gary

Here's my 1990 Provan Tiger XL. Purchased on eBay about 2 years ago.

I looked for over a year before it came up. And, I am so happy to have it.
Here's a link to MSN group: MSN Provan Tiger Group

All I can say is "Sweet".Nice looking XL.The Tiger group you ref to I found and seems not much going on there in terms of good selling priced XL's.More units out west where the factory was at one time.You'er right about finding the right one and waiting until the "one " for you comes around.
