Did I miss something...? 5-hole...6-hole...I would bet that it's 5-hole, based on the previous 310 post...the chassis is the same, isn't it? Maybe I just missed the text intent.

Oh - I am familiar with the unexpected and feel perfectly comfortable with this purchase. This last trip we went on I had a partition wall come completely out of it's riveted slot at the top. That when I bumped a curb.
But, I do acknowledge that with this MoHo, I will have a lot to learn!

You know, I started this 12 lug business, and I was WRONG! Of course its 10 lug, and the front is 5. I have an excuse though. I'm getting OLD.

I'd rather have you be wrong than have me have to look for some 12 hole wheels .

The front wheels have 6 holes.

Five for the lug nuts, and one big one in the middle.

No clownin' here

I hope you enjoy your MH as much as we do ours. Wait till you start getting lokks & thumbs up while rolling down the road. Be careful that you don't take your eyes off the road when smiling back at the admirers. We even get fellow Airstreamers coming to visit at rest areas. There is an area for classic MH listed in the forums tab here. Don't limit your search for repairs & modifications there. EX: plumbing advice in other areas are the same in a TT as the MH's.

I got some trailer experience with our 2 TT. It is going to be the chassis experience that I will need. BTW - this rig is in greally good condition. I was quite impressed when I walked through it. Clean inside and out, no major or minor damage that I could see and comes with the matching towed vehicle. Yes, thats right - the paint on the car matches. How cool is that? Well, pwerhaps some might call me an AS geek at that last one.

We will take delivery at the end of the month. The PO is going to give us the full tour of the rig, showing us everything that he can and we will then have a shakedown camping trip in Lodi overnight with friends.
I have dreamed of this since I first saw a classic AS MOHO. Now we have one and I am so excited. The PO is even throwing in a towed vehicle that actually matches the paint of the MOHO. What could be better.
The PO has a muffler & brake shop and has put a lot of time into making sure that all systems are in top shape. I even looked underneath the rig and it appears clean and well maintained.
We can't wait to bring her home and start to getting to know her. Working on a name now....
It has a Mile Marker electronic overdrive and the doorbell works (it's so cute). Wow - I could go on and on...

Beautiful. B52ish.......

O.K. 2 days away and I made arrangements to pick up this beauty. The PO is going to walk everything through and then go for a drive with us to show how it handles on the road and how the overdrive works, etc. Then we will hitch the included towed vehicle and head out for an overnight mini-shakedown with friends.
Then we will make our way home. At home, we have made sure we have adequate parking for this VERY LARGE Airstream. And to get it in the way we want we will have to back it in...

The Alcola (original OEM supplier) web site pertaining to RV's is here:

Alcoa: Strong Wheels: Home: Motor Home

They have a link to "suppliers" on that and subsequent pages.

The actual center cap is fairly generic, held in place with a couple of ring plates which are bolt pattern specific.

If you would give Southwest wheels a call, they should be able to help you.

Southwest Wheel Company Steel and Aluminum Truck Wheels

Luck.
