Default Need eyes on in Gainesville

A friend of mine is interested in this coach. Is there someone that knows this bird or the owner? It's in Gainesville, FL.

Maybe someone coming to WOG could stop by and take a look at it.

Thanks and email or call.

I question the accuracy of the year stated.

Agreed. Dash has tach and speedo in the corners 85 maybe 86 . Also, looks like Cruiseair ACs. I think those were stopped in 86.
Says its an 8v ... was 8v option in 86? so maybe its an early 87?

Looks pretty good to me. Can't really tell until you're up close and personal.

I think the newer rub rails give it away

The CL listing does include the VIN, and the thread below discusses how to determine the year based on the 10th digit of the VIN:

www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1574

The 10th digit is a G, indicating 1986. (Somebody check my math please!)

Looks like it's had a nice makeover.

Sometimes the VIN will indicate 86,and the title read 87,i have seen this happen twice.
One was a 97 on the title,but 96 on the VIN

Not sure it matters but as others have said, it's an 86.

Oh ya! The old vin# title trick. The manufacturer can deem the year of the coach when they deliver it so I would say go by the title.

If anyone would take good hard look at this 86 or 87 in Gainesville on their way to the Pine M. Rally I am sure my friend would pay for your time and knowledge. Let me know what it will take$$?
Thanks Sean
