owners manual

I have a 1981 Airstream Excella motor coach. It is the turbo diesel. I need to get an owners manual for it. Any body know where I can get one?

You may want the service manual instead or in addition to the owners manual. The service manual has diagrams of how everything is put together, etc.. Owners manuals, the ones that I have seen anyway, are more like advertising brochures.

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Airstream has them for sale. They list one for 1982, you might want to contact them and see if they are suitable for 1981. FWIW Owner's Manual is $48 and Service Manual is $65.
