I got mine this last August with only 33,000 miles on it it looked nearly new inside with only some minor cosmetic defects.

28' Just Out Of Rehab..

The 79 excella, not the owner, though I probably should be in rehab after all it cost me to get this gem back on the road.

25ft

Just picked up a 25ft from NoCa and drove to Texas. Great rig. Also, 1991 with blue decals which was unusual cause most were red. Drives like a champ and great mileage.

We bought ours in Sevierville. TN last March. It originally came from Grand Rapids, Mi. That is where I'm from. We have the original window sticker for it. In 1987 it cost $115.000,00. That was a lot of money back then. It's in great shape now. We have had to do a lot of work on it. Now it is road worthy and we enjoy taking it on long trips.

1989 345LE...owned it almost 3 years...upkeep, so far, has run us about $2,500/yr...well worth it...had a real problem finding a front tire hub last year...found two, own both of them, using one...oak cabinets, corian counters, micro/convection, blender, rear twin bunks...took out the barrel chairs and tv stand and made room for 2 AGM batteries for the solar(already have 2), and added a treadle sewing machine for a computer desk...now, if I can just get rid of the CARPET>>>
Solar is two Kyocera 130's, controller is a Blue Sky 2000E...

Bruno,
We have a 345LE, tow a GEO Tracker, and have both vehicles overloaded with stuff...we have a carburated 454, Gear Vendors Overdrive, and generally travel at 50-60...mileage in flatter areas has been a bit over 7mpg; in the mountains, it is more like 4-5 mpg...

Whoever is doing this thread...can you update the poll? Doesn't seem fair to leave it hanging, and there are several additions...this would be a great source of MoHo info.
A work in progress...???

Glad to see someone honest about gas mileage. I throw the carburetor away and install EFI. I got about 4 mpg with the carb with not power. Sense installing EFI I get 6-7 mpg pulling my Suzuki Vitara, not pulling the car, at 55 mph or at 75 mph and it will go highway speed.
