Thumbs up Finally posted photos...

After several months of being shamed by (some of) our fellow Forums members (and YOU know who you are...) about having nothing in my photo album, I finally got around to posting a few.

I have more to post, those from the Davenport IA get-together as well as those from the Indiana Dunes Forums Rally, as well as my '85 325, '61 Bambi, and '70 Safari, and will do so as time permits.

Roger

Thanks, Hart. The sticker was put on by the PO, and I've just left it. It says "Caution... Wide Right Turns."

2 doors: isn't that a bit unusual? I don't think I've ever seen that before (on an A/S). very fancy!

Hi, Chuck...

Yes, the two-door option is fairly rare. I believe that it was only done for special orders; however I have heard that a few were done for regular sales. I haven't tried to confirm it, and I have absolutely no idea how many two-door trailers are out there.

The rarity of the two doors was the primary reason I was interested in this particular coach. Although as I was negotiating on this Limited there were THREE other two-door 34' trailers for sale simultaneously! They were all excellas though, and all older; the newest was a '92, I believe. It was GORGEOUS though, and had far less use than ours; but ours has some really nift options including the leather trim interior, and the side-by-side refrigerator-freezer; an expensive-to-replace novelty item...

We bought this one from the original owners who had it custom-built for them. We have all of the original paperwork including the original sales receipt and 'window sticker'. It's been fun to own. We get some interesting comments.

Roger

Alan...
Thanks for the kind comments. We enjoy the trailer.

No, we HAD the 325 when I joined the Forums, hence the 85MH325 moniker... but we sold it to another Forums member early last spring AFTER we bought the 34' tri-axle. We picked up the new trailer on Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed the 325 for three summers. I just decided I was getting tired of maintaining an extra drive train and chassis and just didn't have the time to spend on it that it really should have had...
