Spotted a 345 mid 80's at Camping World in Anderson, Calif just south of Redding. Wheels were off the tag axle. I asked if owner was around...he wasn't. I was the fourth person to stop and ask about the 345 in the last two days. The first three wanted to buy it...not me! I believe the owner lives up north and was having someone drive it up from southern Calif. I'm going to guess this is the same 345 that blew an engine on the way through the area a few months back.

Yup! I drove by last Monday and saw it in the secondary lot of B&B RV next to Camping World...with the tires still off the tag axle. I'm guessing Camping World can't find the parts. Personally, I would never take it Camping World!

Maybe someone towed it there with the front of the ground and destroyed the tag axle in the process...

Spotted this motorhome in the Tom Sawyer RV Park in West Memphis, Arkansas, recently. In my dreams I hit the Lotto, buy this motorhome and restore it to factory original.

this quote is in reference to the photo in post 19. Those wrinkles are caused by using the stabilizers as levelers. Even though they are called levelers. That big piece of aluminum wall gets wrinkled when the P30 frame gets twisted in the leveling process.

Heard the frame creak and noticed the main door not closing right, but seeing that damage and your comment makes me think the driver's door missing rivet might have popped off due to the twisting. It seemed weird to see a rivet missing on an isolated panel like the one on the door. Still use levelers but minimize to use as mostly stabilizers.

I saw a reflection on mine going down the road in a storefront window. Does that count? Just drove it from Knoxville to DFW. Had a great time.
