Put a Cummins juiced to 400+hp with a MD3060 behind it and go to the RV drags.

After serious consideration.........ummmmmmm NO! But thanks so much for bringing it to my attention.

Guidance from the experienced

Hi all,
I am talking to a seller of a 345 and I am looking for pitfalls to avoid. The seller has been responsive. I have gotten answers to quests that I have asked so far. we have been going back and forth, I am waiting for additional info.

I asked about milage and the response was that the unit has over 70k on it but the odometer had to be changed by the previous owner and and the new reading needs to be added to the 70k. I have never had this issue. Is it possible that this is legitimate?

I have the VIN what is the best avenue to check the vehicle records to avaoid a scam?

Major questions to ask concerning these units or a sale like this?

Any advice would be welcome.
I appreciate any help.

Thanks

There should be a checklist on the site. Google it and it should show up. Big money is with engine/gearbox. Check status of repairs and receipts. Always a good guide as to how well maintained it has been

Fwiw, odometer and speedometer don't work on my unit, i think it's a fairly common issue

Check out the buyers guide in the sticky section

My suggestion is to write and open description of the vehicle and as many details, as you feel comfortable with (avoiding address/location etc) and post it on this Forum. You would be surprised by the number of Members who might have already come across your targeted purchase or may know some of its history. There are numerous Forum Members who can recount the shock and horror of chasing down a particular Airstream motorhome only to find that most sellers succumb to that hyper-inflationary description syndrome compounded by severe and unaccountable lapses in memory when pressed!

There is a '94 Landyacht for sale on Facebook that has Alcoa wheels and a Banks power pack for $850. The wheels should fit a classic, so it might be worth picking up for those two things. It's not likely salvageable, but might be worth the wheels, and headers if someone is looking for a project....

Uh huh, and how much labour and cost will it take to despose of the rest of the caracass? I'm in the process now of doing this to a motorhome, and I'm concertively estimating 100 hours to scrap and $1,000 in bin rental and landfill costs. I could be way out of line on this.

28ft Argosy which has had numerous additional trailer windows added (an extra 2 each side as far as I can tell). If it is just for the motorhome then I think the seller left his finger on the 0 too long!

I love this part; "All my plans, ideas and resources are available if desired."

If I had a dollar for every gutted Airstream ad that echoed this guy's dribble, I'd be rich.

Talking of plans and ideas Tony.....

Did you draw any for your dinette table? I know you have given a detail description but I am concerned that the raised floor section that Peanut has his dinette sat on, means the space available between floor and window will be too short to allow a decent length table to drop into the height. One of the other forum members has asked if they can have Peanuts original table but I can't let it go until I am sure a lift and drop table can be made to replace it.
