Some call me crazy,

Hello forum, glad to finally join a great community of dedicated folks. I've been the owner, restorer, husband and financer of a 1985 345 Classic. However my Classic was titled as a motorized shell from the "Specialty Vehicles" line. When I obtained it, there were two gen sets 49 outlets, two side doors and two AC units. No water, plumbing, furnature, windows, holding tanks......the list goes on. I've been coast to coast and have probably met many of you along the way putting my "Classic" back together again.

Most of what's been done came from the AS factory but some is unique and original. I've had most interior skins off, rebuilt the eng, trans, drive trane, air bag & air bag systems so there isn't much about a Classic that surprises me any more.

I'm really looking forward to sharing my experiences and hopefully finish out the build.


John & Lisa from Dallas, TX.

Welcome to the forums. Your 345 sounds very interesting to say the least. I am trying to imagine what your MH was used for. 2 gen sets and 49 outlets., thats alot of plugs and power. Do you have any history of the unit?

Hi John and Lisa,

I have to agree with Richard. Pictures would be interesting. And yes, you are crazy, or you wouldn’t be here in the first place.

You're already shared with your wiper post. Glad to have you and your wife as members of the forum. On the forums you'll find great people, crazy people and I'm assuming there is a normal one or two as well although I think they keep their heads down

Members of these forums also love pictures so don't be afraid to post pictures of everything

Brad
