First off, Welcome to the forums! But, I think we may need a little more info to give you input...what condition is it in? What is the asking price? Do you have any pictures?

I do have some pics that I will post later today. It's in pretty good condition. Thank you Sheri. Any history anywhere on the serial numbers. Sorry if these are common questions, but I am a newbee.

Welcome to the Forums, Jimbcole. It will be hard for anyone to answer your question. The answers would depend on the condition of the unit, whether the systems are functioning, whether it is in towable condition, whether you intend to restore it, or if it has been restored.

With a rig of that age, it will be a challenge and a cash-sink unless everything goes perfectly all the time.

We look forward to learning more about you and the rig.

Pat

Also, this is pretty cool...it's a copy of the original specifications brochure.

Looking forward to seeing your pics...

Interior looks original. Painted ceilings and walls, 2 single beds, folding dining table in front section. Original Princess stove, some veneer coming off of cabinets.
Original looking fixtures
