Just looked at a '97, 34ft classic...

...I was delivering some new batteries to Manteca Trailer today and noticed they have a 1997, 34 Classic on their lot...

1997 Excella 35WB Travel Trailers at Manteca Trailer Manteca California Manteca Trailer

I took a look around, and it seems to be an extremely 'clean' classic! There is some clearcoat pealing on the exterior, but all panels are true, without any noticeable dings or dents...

The interior is also extremely clean, stove, refer, etc look like they've hardly been used...the only detractor I noticed was a small panel of the overhead lining over the rear bed was sagging and needs to be glued...

This unit is listed as on consignment, and their inventory label attached near the door shows $15,995 as their 'retail' price, what ever that means...

The Mfg label shows mfg date as 1/15/97...

This looks like a great unit to hitch up and go for someone looking for an older 34'...I have no connection with Manteca Trailer as far as their sales are involved...just wanted to pass the info along...

We love our '97 34'. Airstream was required to switch to a more environmentally friendly adhesive around that time. When the temp of the glue exceeds about 90f, it starts to breakdown. We had a couple of sections drooping, and had the ceiling re-secured with small screws and caps. Now it looks like it was upholstered.

Thanks for the tip. I wish I was in the market for a 34. Looks like this would be a good one to go after.

So has anybody gone to see this thing yet? I'll be in the area next week and I might go take a look at it.

Schloe...

Eh, I've looked at it - see the info above...as I mentioned, it's really clean, and has the same floor plan as later 34 footers...

It did look like the bed was only a 'double', which was available in the earlier models....

Their web site says it's on consignment, and to 'make offer', so I don't know what the price range is...

That 34 AS sold about a week after I posted the later remarks about it...Even at the asking price it looked like a GREAT deal, IMHO, as it was like new inside, clean, and without any visible wear!

We would have jumped on that AS in a minute if we didn't already have our Ambassador...

Maybe a new set of tires, and it appeared ready for the road...I hope the new owners enjoy their new AS!

If the new owners that bought this AS from Manteca Trailer are here on the Forums, let us know how you're making out, travels, etc...
