I've got a 1987 345. That polish job is making me drool! I've had it for 2 years and the furthest it's been is from Scottsdale to Andy's at Inland RV. Haven't even camped in it yet! We're hoping to use it this summer finally. Now we just have to learn how to use it all.

I'll post pictures once I have the inside cleaned up a bit. Just had it at the mehanic's again now that I could afford to do some more mech work. New bell cranks, LOF, tune up, cruise control added, alignment.

I'm hoping to redo the cafe upholstery in the next year. I've learned how to weave and would love to make the cloth myself.

While RTINCAN was in the shop someone came by wanting to buy it. He told the owner of the shop that he is a collector and that there were only 13 345's ever made. Can anyone confirm that?

I think we'd all like to know how many coaches of a particular model/year were made. I wrote AS years ago, but got no info.

I am pretty sure that there was more than 13 345's made... maybe in that year?

I think the count is off too. There are many of us here with 345's.

It sure would be cool if they had a PDF that told us how many brothers and sisters were made each year, each size!

I'm not sure if it would be good or bad if there were only 13 345's made but since it was the most popular model of the motorhome I have a feeling you were misinformed. Coincidentally, I counted 7 classic motorhomes at this year's Alumapalooza. 2-Argosy motorhomes, 3-345's including my own and Rob Fike's (& one other) and two of the mid-nineties diesel pusher, aluminum motorhomes, one of which belongs to GREENovaters.

I have read that thread. There is a lot of good information on it. There seems to be some confusion over production numbers still yet however. I wish there was a way to nail down the amounts of each model that were made in any particular year. but if the factory has the information they aren't talking.

You are correct. they are too busy to answer the phone and I have no clue who to email there about this.

It would be nice....
For the Admin to allow threads and posts to be Edited always, instead of the 30 mins crash that we see here..
That way, that thread would have a sticky with:
1/ Years
2/ Chassis/Vin numbers.
Each time an owner posts his/her number it would be added to the relevent chassis year count... and if one is scrapped/totaled/parted out we could reflect that too.

Too much to ask?

there may have been 13 to 16 370 's manufactured.

but several hundred 345 's in the 88 and 89 era

as far as 90 , 91 345 models ??? I have never seen one.

I'm checking on this. My gut is that the edit parameter is probably a system wide standard that applies to all threads. We were unfortunately put into a position some years ago of having to lock down threads due to some trouble makers who would change content in posts. The content was violating forum policies and it became a situation where the mods could not monitor all the new posts along with those that were constantly changing. As in most cases in society the bad behavior of a few penalize everyone.
