1988 Vogue III 35' Motorhome Exhibit "A"

1988 Vogue III 35' Motorhome (A) Crown
1988 Vogue III 35' Motorhome

1988 Vogue III Custom Coach 35' Diesel Motorhome built on a Crown Bus Chassis.

This BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM MOTORHOME was originally priced at $199,000 and top-of-the-line state-of-the-art coach for it's time. It was quality built on a Crown Bus Chassis using Rockwell International running gear, a Ridewell Air Suspension, and Aloca wheels. The Detroit Diesel engine and 4 speed automatic Allison transmission provide reliable power that is easy to maintain with an electric over air Stone Bennet shifter it eliminates the possible failure of computerized systems used in later model coaches. Cruise control also still works great. The dash air conditioner has a new compressor, high pressure switch, and drier and it was working great all last summer but slowly leaked the 10 cans of R134 due to the older long A/C lines. On hot days we keep the 15000 BTU Coleman roof A/C and rear cabin vented window air on using the Onan DKD 7.5kw diesel generator that burns less than 0.5 gal per hour. On cold days there is a Suburban propane furnace as well as the front "dash" and rear engine heaters that also work.

There is a 5 gallon hot water heater that is both propane and 120V AC as well as the newer Dometic fridge and freezer. A four burner propane stove with convection oven microwave combination all works great for cooking any meal and there is loads of storage in the cabinets all along the overheads. Some of the fluorescent lights have failed and either need bulbs or ballasts, I have replaced some with LED's, and have extra LEDs that will go with the coach. I have installed ~800 watts of solar panels on top of the roof and wired them into a Morningstar charge controller to the house battery an 8D size 12V AGM type. The house battery and system also has a 70AMP 12V charger (from 120V AC). There are also 2 8D engine start batteries and a trickle charger for long term charge maintenance. Solenoids controlled by dash switches allow boosting the battery banks together for starting or viewing state of charge. There are three locations for controlling the generator including the system monitor which includes tank level sensors for the 100 gallon fresh water, 40 gallon gray, 40 gallon black, and 60 gallon propane tanks. The main fuel tank holds 100 gallons but only the first 7/8 is usable by the generator to prevent the generator from stranding you. The on-demand water pump is 12V and there is a nice stand-up shower with newer delta fixture, sink, and RV flushing toilet. This coach was designed with an insulated and heated compartment for the tanks and water system to prevent freezing, but the furnace has to be kept on for it to work. The awning is in acceptable shape, but may need to be replaced in a few years. The electric step works, but is better if you help it extend fully when you park for long periods. We have put over 20,000 miles on this coach since we have owned it with no real issues. I would recommend it to someone who is mechanically inclined as it will require occasional maintenance and repairs, but overall it is very reliable mechanically and should be reasonable cost to maintain due to the common truck parts used. I have found that truck mechanics love this thing and you will have good luck going to them rather than an RV service center. The engine bay is readily accessible and it is simple 1980's technology using HEAVY DUTY hardware.
