Excella Info?

Hi to all! Am new to site and this is my first of many questions. I see Excella model trailers for sale and I guess there is a 500 and a 1000 model of an Excella trailer? Secondly, did the excella trailer come in a widebody and normal width and if so why would they make a wide body in that model? Am thinking of the Excella purchase in a year or two and am looking at 1980's to early 1900's years. Alot of questions! Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Hello MWilliams, welcome to the forums. Lot of folks to help you here. Your question about 500 and 1000's. They made both, different years, different trim and different lengths. The wide bodies were first made around 93/94 I think. My 1990 has plenty of room for us but have never camped in a wider one. Enjoy your search! Read everything you can here, it will give you a lot of confidence while you are looking.
Regards,
Joe

the word excella was used on units spanning >15 years...

this eventually and essentially morphed into the current classic line.

width depends on year, as does HEADROOM which expanded before width.

and the confusion about when this happened goes back almost 2 WHEN it happened...

Excella Info!

A big thanks to Airslide, AirHeadsRus and 2airishuman for the info. Have another question? What is the significance of the six large red numbers on the upper front and rear of some A/S trailers? Thanks again!
