I have recently assumed responsibility and tender loving care for my Aunt and Uncle's 1987 Vogue lll 35'. She's in exciting shape for an old girl and has kept her figure quite nicely. 44k miles, 8.2L V8 turbocharged side radiated Detroit Diesel with an Allison 4 speed auto in a Crown Bus chassis with air ride and brakes. And a spotless (and why yes timeless) burgundy and mauve interior with corian, hardwood, and cherry cabinets. I have diaries/log books for every tank of gas, oil change, lubrication, repair, parts purchase, and trip she's ever seen. Hasn't seen much time out in the sun the last few years so I'm shaking out some cobwebs at the moment but nothing serious. My intent is to keep all 100% original. I'll be taking her back out in public soon to hit some festivals with my vintage motorcycles in tow.
I am not an experienced RV'r. Sure I've seen a couple of days in class A's in the past. But certainly not in any machine of this caliber. Never one as heavy duty and purpose built as this. It's a unique, and fascinating, learning curve.
Finally my question. What is the normal highway speed for some of your new modern class A machines of this same ilk? With tractor trailers roaring down the interstate doing 80mph am I a hinderance/danger at 60mph? She's capable of a 70mph with ease. But somehow running that rpm in 4th gear (3000) just seems like jumping on 80yr old Granny's back and spurring the old girl off at a full tilt.
Looking for perspective on that RPM and speeds. Thanks
