I am new to rving, I just bought a 1974 dodge champion n40 class A motothome. I am trying to find out the model that I have, Since the n40 only stands for the chassie model and not the champion made model. please help if you can.
I am warned to winterize before it gets cold, and have some indoor storage lined up, yet it is about that time of year, and the cold is coming! If it were ready for camping, I would be gone for warmer weather!
Still replacing things like smoke detectors, and trying to understand the systems.. Steep learning curve for someone so ignorant!

Clean up will probably take years for most of the areas. If you are planning a Fla. Trip please take extra food, Water, and supplies to help other...

Update: Power Tune -- 10/15/18
You can't have too much torque or horse power for accelerating a diesel pusher like the NewAire onto the highway or climbing grades.
