Could be a fly and drive. Think it would make it to Florida?

Your Dutch Star come with the Comfort Drive™? A friend of mine has an '09 Essex and says the Comfort Drive really is the bee's knees.

Mine is so damned quiet when we're driving. I can actually hear the cat purring on the sofa. Full air suspension, even with both grey and black water tanks are full, it still rides like a dream......

Not sure on the length.
Drum brakes, mighty Mopar 318. Half the wheels have been converted to modular from split rim.

New Fridge, heater. Water system converted from pressure tank to modern high quality pump.

Mechanically sound, just needs the usual coach work.

Every time I try to sell, her I get all sentimental.

Fun project if you are handy. Cheap to tinker with but, lets not talk mpg.
I imagined a Isuzu diesel conversion then run bio fuel

I names it the "Millenium Falcon" because when I punched the gas to the floor, nothing happened.

Cruises nice at 60, tows a bike-sized U-Haul trailer
That's how I got it home from Arizona.

Just like the OP here, I got a weakness for older MHs. I've presently have a 20+ year old model and I love the floor plan and looks of it. There are some parks that will limit the age of coaches using their facilites. Personally, it hasn't been an issue for me so far but mine does look pretty good. If it were to come to a park telling me that, I'll be down the road. I can understand their point to a degree but only to a very slight degree and if I owned a park, I wouldn't want to exclude paying customers based on an arbritrary number. Yes there are some that do. My opinion is to not spend my $$ there if I know they have a policy like that . It's a semi free country and my business will be taken elsewhere. Way too many truly great looking old classics out on the road that look better than some of the newer ones.

Yeah, that's me, lucky. Lucky to be alive. The only way I can afford this thing is because I fell from a truck while on the job, landing on my head. With the cash settlement from that, we bought this.
The sale of the house and SSDI will hopefully cover our living expenses.
I'm sitting here looking at 6 prescription bottles, some for pain, a couple for some of the other issues that have arisen from my brain bouncing around inside my skull.
But hey, I'm here, and my wife isn't going through the selling or donating of just about everything we own all alone. So yeah I'm lucky. It could be worse, I might have had to stop riding.
Oh Wait! I have had to. Ahhh well, I'll save a few thousand not buying an Overlift for the coach . I'd wish you luck, but you might end up with mine.......

When my wife & I flew down to GA from VA to look at what did become our '85 BlueBird...same thing! We agreed to buy it and then the husband & wife had one last talk about "do we really want to sell it"...talk about a little bit of heart stopping drama
