It is sure a different floorplan than most, with the rear bath and twin beds! Probably on a John Deere/Oshkosh chassis which were very heavy duty, and most had a lot of CC! Is it a carb motor, or TBI? Looks to be in good shape!
Good luck! Rail!

OH, and, Welcome!

I am looking for a 30' DP, and found a '92 Elite with that configuration in TX. We're in OR, but I would have gone down to get it if not for the drive train which would not have done what I wanted for freeway traveling. I was able to get drive train information about it from Freightliner by emailing them the VIN. The '92 was on an Oshkosh chassis which Freightliner bought, I think in the '90s. I think they may have also bought JD if that is what yours is. Contacting Freightliner with the VIN might be a way to get the information you need.

Best of luck.

Steve

?????

I had a 1991 Overland on the Oshkosh chassis, 460 Ford, 3 speed auto! Also had the Holley carb, and it drove very good, very HD chassis, could haul all my stuff, and tow a car on a trailer easy, no problems at all! Towed my BIL's 69 Camaro on a car trailer over to IRP to the Super Chevy Show, and i did not even know it was back there! It ran very good, no OD transmission, so not a speed demon, but it did a fine job! I took it to Myrtle Beach once, and it handled to mountains very good! It had monster anti-sway bars under it, and did not lean in the curves, or in the cross winds, and was very stable! It did have a pretty big overhang, so when a semi passed, you would get a push, but it was still stable, and did very well, and when pulling the car trailer, it was better than with out it? I guess it kind of anchor'd it? Rail!

Welcome to the forum!

Nice looking rig, you came to the right place for info. If anyone can get it for you these people can and looks like you have already got some good advice.
