Member and now new Owner of AS Ly 30 MH

Officially it's mine, title finally cleared by bank, PO, and State.
Now that it's registered we can go camping, or at least change it's location. I find it hard to call it camping when we have all the amenities of home.

We purchased a 2000 LY 30 MH but found it to be a mixture of numbers.
Vin says its 97, chassis has a constuction date of 98, the chevy owners manual is 99 and the Airstream manual is 2000 but the drawings and schmatics in the manual refer all the way back to 91.

This last month has been a learning experience, if you are a diy owner you can appreciate my amazement of dumb stuff "certified mechanics" did to the MH. PO didn't work on unit, all repairs were made at AS dealer or specialty shops verified by the bills in the maintenance folder.

I am very happy with the basic AS design and quality of most of the original build. Still have one major item and that is to take it in for recall by the refeer manufacturer. Anything else will be just to replace 9 yrs of aging or more discoveries of squirrel damage. He or she loved plastic and rubber, even decorated it's nest with a couple of pieces of vacuum tubing it dragged from under hood to top of the motor

Would like to hear from other owners of this model that would like to tell about changes they have made to improve or make it more comfortable.
We have come full circle in that we started MHing 35yrs ago when I built our first on the similar chassis from a delivery truck, AS did a much better job

Congratulations and welcome. Certainly you will find all the information you could want here at this site. I am a trailer person, but have driven many, many MH when I was showing dogs. They are fun aren't they? I love my trailers, but know you will have a great camping experience in this coach.
