Hello,


Just sealed a deal on a 2008 Seville (34ck). Very excited to get it home and start improving it (it's a sickness, I apparently have to modify everything I own).


It's in really good condition with the exception of the decals, tires, awning, and someone cut the cables to and removed some kind of satellite or antenna system (round pattern where it was). Needs some TLC like any RV of this vintage but that is to be expected.



Has two AC, a washer/dryer (never used), and a 5500 Onan with 8 hours (yes, 8). can't wait to put it to use!




Thanks for the join
Allen

Call me the weight police if you want!
A vintage 36'+ RV with generator & washer/dryer will have a substantial pin weight, hope you have plenty of truck cause a 1/2 ton ain't enough.

Thanks for the concern but got it covered by a significant margin. Long time CDL holder and equipped for much heavier.



My "vintage" stuff is from the 30s to the 60s so we differ on what equals vintage although I'd agree most folks would consider 2008 as vintage

Welcome aboard Allen.


I guess if a 2008 is considered "vintage", I'm guilty also. Mine is a 2008.

"Vintage" was referred by you in your 1st post, just to be clear.

True, somewhat (although subtlety so) different contextual use of the word and it's all in good fun


My response was not intended to offend, just have a little fun.



Thanks again for the concern and I am being serious. I'm sure most of us have witnessed inadequate tow rigs on the road and the potential safety issues they bring to themselves and other drivers. I think it's always okay to make sure folks know what is needed for a particular rig or at least help them think about their choices.

Vintage?

If a 2008 is vintage and a 2004 is an antique, I don't even want to know what my 1998 would be considered. LOL
It is built a lot better than most of the crap I saw at the rv show last month. My husband walked across the floor of one and you could see it give with every step.

I also have that sickness where I turn everything into a project. I just don't seem to be happy unless I am working on something.
