plumbing question

We recently bought a '66 Safari and have a question about the pipes. Are ABS pipes that are used in mobile homes the same pipes that are used in campers? Thanks for any help.

I'm not real sure how old ABS piping is.
I know it's been around for 30 years. Maybe longer.
However, You can hook together ANY kind of pipe if you use what is called a Mission Coupling. A mission coupling will allow you to connect abs to pvc to copper to steel to cast iron. It is a rubber coupling surrounded by a stainless steel band with 2 hose clamps to cinch it down. I use them all the time in my remodeling business where you need to move a sink or bath tub or the like.
Often I have to cut into the old cast iron or steel drains and when I do I just reconnect every thing with plastic (abs or pvc) and a couple of mission couplings. They are readily available at any of the big box stores such as bLowes or Home Despot.
