I am the proud owner of a "Vintage" 1990 intervec falcon 190. My wife and i have talked about owning an RV for years.WE owned a 22" trailer for a couple of years, but never a coach type vehicle. When I say vintage I really mean OLD as this baby is going on 25 years. I bought it against the advice of every sane person I know , on eBay -sight unseen. There were -pleny of close up photos posted and the odometer showed only 44K authenticated miles.
It was in storage in Florida so i didn't get to see it for a couple months. I was not at all disappointed with its overall appearance. Except for some fading of the upholstery and an invasion of carpenter ants, it was in great shape. I replaced the fuel pump and brake lines and this beauty runs like a top - a monster ford v-8 powered top.
I am having the carpeting and wood underfloor replaced and the whole thing steam cleaned and fumigated and I'm sending the ants and a few roaches i discovered to the gas chamber. We are looking forward to complteing cosmetic improvements and going over the rest of the mechanical issues. Trans and ac checlk out.generator is functioning. Can'twait to see what else might happen before we set out.
Do you experience class b-ers think I made a bad decision buying such an old vehicle.I hope not cause we really love our old P O S.
Oh onemoredetail, because i am handicapped my wife will do all the driving, gas fill ups and tank dumping. Poor woman. Sounds like a perfect arrangement forme, but I wouldn't recommend that path.
From our experience with our pullbehind a few years ago, RVers are incredibly helpiul. We are grateful for that.
