When does a Moble Home become "vintage"

Is "vintage" an age thing a style thing, or does it just mean you cant find parts for it? I just got a 33' class A 92 Holiday Rambler Aluma Lite. Is my rig considered vintage.

And it's not a Moble Home. It's a Motor Home!

Yes, understood. I wouldn't imagine you were trying to be offensive. Just my way of saying hello!

First,, WELCOME Bhimbaugh !!!
Heck I thought mine would be "vintage" material,,, but it lacks a couple years,,, so I'll just check in here to keep up on things before I can formally list mine as 'vintage' .. It's still pretty rare.... All is good !

Shoooot!!!! I guess I've been reading in the wrong section! Mine is an '89 Winnie Chieftain. No wonder I couldn't understand things like basement air or dp pushers or slideouts and things like that! It's good to be where I belong now

The Vintage RV Club considers 25 years or older as vintage. Can't beat vintage rigs. Our trailer will be 30 years old next year.

It all depends on who you are talking to..

To the dealership and repair shops: 10 seconds after you drive off the lot your unit is "Vintage" and "Vintage parts cost more" (Ok so that is perhaps a bit exagaratted,, or not)

To some campgrounds 10 years

To the state of Michigan. 25 years

To the other 49 States. I have not a clue.

None taken- it really is a "mobile home" for many in this Forum...don't know how/why that term has fallen into disfavor among some.

When my wife and I married in 1977 we lived in a "mobile home'. It was plenty vintage, even back then!
Good times!

How much trouble would it be to install one do ya suppose?
Naw.... if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
Wouldn't be original then!

Welcome

I have a 26' 91 Holiday Rambler Aluma Lite. I started posting to this thread in 09, after our Alaska trip. Even posted pictures, no one complained. We are a fun loving group and as you seen by the responses no clear line.
Post your questions, we will gladly answer as best we can.

Dan
