What is the difference between the 97-01 and 94-96 Excella?

I see that the two generations are broken up on here, and I was just curious what the differences are, specifically things like windows, frames, systems, etc.

Starting around 1997, Excellas were 102" wide, rather than 96". That by itself should be reason enough to segregate them.

1999, WiiiiiiideBody! Excella 34'

I showed my wife many "standard" AS. She has a by of claustrophobia. Each one we would get inside about 2 steps and she did a 180 turn and was outside the trailer yelling.."there is no way"!!!

When we went to view the one we purchased, I went in first with the previous owner, turned to watch her reaction.....it was love at first step... She said "what is the difference?" The previous owners wife said, "Honey, this is the Widebody. Isn't it a different experience?" My wife was sold.

6" really can bring a smile ...

Okay, just when DID the wide body models come out? I've heard that the 95s were the beginning of the WB, while others say they came later.

Okay, just answered my own question. The 34' was available as both a WB and standard body in 95.
