The 450 listed in California is beautiful. I see the awnings in that 08 became goat rails. It looks like using the awnings to hide the rooftop appliances was a wanderlodge inovation. Some day i will have one of the 50 450s out there

Greg,if the 450 guys would post here,it would raise awareness of the 450s.
The email list they use does nobody any good.

I am a firm believer that you can 'try and true' a repair as a posted attempt. There are people who look for the possible failures in your repair and others who search out reasonable options. I listen to fail rebuttal as much as suggestions and research replies. 450 group misses out. I hope to get one some day. A Prevost would be cool but I want to take advantage of the 150 grand savings a comparable 3 slide 450 has over any Canadian shell.

Very cool, because they do! Their round Hella lenses are just hidden and aerodynamic

My theory is that when depreciation drags their asking prices a bit lower, we’ll see more DIY’ers grab them. Maybe then, we’ll see more posts on these awesome coaches.

Some of the first information loaded into the data base, after acquiring drawings from Parliament was for the M450

What interesting timing for this thread! I've been stewing on upgrading to a 450 or Newell.
Hoping people post up here!

We would love to have some help indexing the 450 files,its all loaded but if you don't file it and name the file its just a big box of air.
We thought some of you 450 guys would have a stake in this work.
John W and Bill P have done the scanning and other boring work.
Who's in to help?

Randy,
you hit the nail on the head, they are perfect! Well, not exactly but for the most part once you address the slide operation they are very reliable. One big issue is setting up to run out the slides and to retract the slides. With the 450 you run out the slides before you level the coach and then you take it off level to retract them.

The multiplex system has been very reliable. You can change location for switch functions so you can customize the switch key pads to your personal preference. With the 365 tires on the front it gives a better ride.

There has been some paint issues with a few coaches.

Karen Gulrich is making progress on the indexing, she sent the first batch of M380 & M450 index pages to me yesterday. (Thanks Karen!).
