Parts for a 1978 Allegro Motorhome

Help, don't know if I am doing this right, but here goes.  I need a Wheel Hub Seal and Shaft Gasket for a 1978 Allegro Motorhome.  I can't find these parts, they all say the home it too old.  I am not ready to drive it to the Junk Yard yet.  Please let me know if anyone knows where I could get these parts.  Thank you all so much.

JAMEE ll owners manual needed- 1981 or 1982 or 1983

I have searched everywhere for an owners manual for my just newly purchased 1982 JAMEE ll, Chevy oldie, 22 foot motor home. We are new to this and I need a lot of help figuring out how everything works electrically, Propayne, plumbing use, etc. We are in our 80s, can use all the help we can get and are willing to buy one if available. If not, does anyone know if an RV dealer might offer some tutoring based on my own unit for beginners ? Thanks, Don Novak- Beloit, Ohio

Anyone got a manual for my camper ?

I  bought a trailer over the weekend, but having trouble identifying it. 

The name on the front is the "Falcon Flyte"  (1976) and my research appear to indicate that i may be a Glendale Golden under a different name? 

Glendale make trailers in Canada for 40 years and when bankrupt abut 1985.

Glendale was purchased in the Mid 1980's and combined with another manufacturer for 3 years then went bankrupt again  ? The Falcon trailers from the 1990's…

Quandary about tire pressure

Newbie Fireball

Obviously I'm new here, I've read a little bit already, but I'm happy to be here.

I was on facebook a bit, but I honestly care very little for facebook. So I'm here.

I'm asking for pointers tho. 

So, in mid 2014 my family kinda fell apart, and we stumbled on a 1984 Chevrolet Fireball (G30 5.7L V8) 

We lived in it for a year and a half, replaced the heater and repaired it's TH400 Transmission. After that, we moved into a moral on Route 40 in…

Balboa owners

Hello, I'm looking for other Balboa Motorhome owners, I made a website, albeit, basic right now, to house this info.

I'd like to connect with other owners, compile manuals, info etc. for current and future users. Looking for detailed history about Jensen Marine, stories about Balboas, etc. 

Thanks, Bill
