My guess would be in the 20+ year old range. I know our 87 Allegro was considered vintage, though it didn't look it.

Cool 1982 Pace Arrow

454 - 4 bbl 30 foot (wish I had that in my 66 Impala SS back when) 48,000 miles and around a 100 some hours on the Gennie (Onan) pulls our toad, a 1999 Deville Concours on a Kar Katy SS with ease. I don't really think it is broken in yet. Very clean inside and out. Get alot of "boy what year is that" and "sure looks good for that old". Makes the week buffing and waxing worth it.

I Have a 1990 Vogue Prima Vista DP and she is 23 yrs old and runs like a champ construction started by Mitchell Nov. 1989 completed Apr. 1990 and rolled out the door. So I believe she qualify for Vintage

I currently have two..

one certainly qualifies for vintage:
1986 Pace Arrow 28ft, 454 with 42k miles on it, every system works and is in really good shape.
one almost qualifies:
1996 Itasca Suncruiser 34RQ, 460 with 51k miles on it, I have put over 6k miles on it since Thanksgiving of 2012.

Will be selling the 86 this summer.

In the UK, "Vintage", when applied to cars, used to mean pre-1931. Later than that were "PVT" for Post Vintage Throughbreds. Since I haven't lived in the UK since 1968, I don't know what the current definition is.

For RV's. I agree that 20 years old or more definitely qualifies, and maybe 15 years, too.

Well, my 1992 Winnebago Adventurer qualifies as vintage, though it seems closer to the modern rigs in a lot of ways -- Electronic engine controls, though not modern OBDII, auto-park brake, looks like a modern coach with a tall bus-style windshield and the driver seat and steering column pushed as far forward as a P-chassis will allow... It's kind of on the transition from the older style rigs to the new. It's the first model year the Adventurer was offered, so that in itself makes it interesting. Certainly very different from the Pace Arrow we had before, that was about a decade older.
