OUR 'ANTIQUE' 1990 FORETRAVEL GRAN VILLA

Recommended Posts

WE HAVE HAD THIS COACH FOR THREE YEARS..........A 1990 FORETRAVEL GRAN VILLA U280.....SHE'S 36' FEET LONG, SHINES LIKE A NEW PENNY, AND TRAVELS NICELY ALONG THE HIGHWAYS.  OF COURSE, MOSTLY, BECAUSE MY MAN IS AN EX-TRUCK DRIVER AND KNOWS JUST HOW TO HANDLE THIS LADY!

SHE'S  A BEAUTY BUT WE HAVE CONTINUED TO  ADD " MAKEUP " TO HER ALONG THE WAY.  A LADY LIKE TO LOOK HER BEST!!

SHE HAS BEEN FUN TO UPDATE, CLEAN, DECORATE, AND DRIVE...WE TRAVEL WITH TWO OR THREE COUPLES AND OUR BESTEST FRIEND, PLUS A FOURLEGGER!! WE'VE HAD A LOT OF FUN AND PLAN TO SEE SOME OF YOU ALL ON THE ROADS TO COME!!

EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS YEARS ON HER, SHE'S STILL SHOWING US SOME OF HER BEST !!

Welcome to the forum. Using all caps is the same as shouting.:o

Please fill out your signature with your coach home base etc it  will help you get better answers faster when you ask questions.

Bredan, 

Welcome to the Forum. Are you and your friends FMCA members? If so have you'll found a Chapter yet? 

Your coach is part of your family and it looks like she is in good health.

We feel the same about our 1988 Prevost.  It's a great coach and we have 3 - 4 leggers along.  You just can't find that kind of quality any more!

Here is our 1989 Southwind a couple of years ago when we took an easter trip with the kids.  Woke up to 4" of snow.  Almost had to put the chains on to get out, but the coach pulled us out just fine.

Love our old motorhome!

BREDAN/WILLIAMS, Welcome! Good looking coach. They don't build them like that anymore (cost too much $$$ to do it correctly :D) take care of it and it will last!

Breden/William and rvadventure,

It is a beautiful coach. One to be proud of, however when you type in all CAPITOLS it an indication of SHOUTING. :wub:

Thanks, look forward to hearing more from both of you.

I know people who were teletype operators in the military and Morse code operators that do not know how to type in anything but all caps. Hard to ween then off the habit. Took me a long long time.
