1986 Leisure-Craft Class C Motorhome

I just bought a 1986 Leisure-Craft Class C on a Ford chassis. What can you tell me about where it was made and when the company folded?

Any ideas on where I can get manuals on it?


ANSWER: Hi Phil, First let me congratulate you on your new RV.

Your Leisure-Craft Motorhome was manufactured by Travelcraft by Craft Products which was located in Elkhart Indiana. The original Travelcraft went out of business in 1990 but re-emerged as Travelcraft by Craft Products, Inc. which then also went out of business in 1994. So basically you have an Orphan RV.

I will tell you up front that getting an Owner's manual for an Orphan RV whose manufacturer went out of business so many years ago will be darn near impossible.

If you want to give it a shot, here are a couple of places you can look for an Owner's Manual for your motorhome. You can try to Search eBay. Just type in; "RV owner’s manual" (without the quotation marks) in the search box. I have seen quite a few RV Owner's Manuals listed there. The other resource you should try is the RV Manual Exchange Page, you can post a listing there and see if anybody has the manual you are looking for.

If you cannot locate an Owner's Manual a good alternative is to get a hold of a copy of Woodall's RV Owner's Handbook by Gary Bunzer (aka The RV Doctor) (pictured above). This book includes do-it-yourself maintenance and repair tips on how to take care of your RV and avoid breakdowns on the road. It covers Winterizing, Appliances, Batteries, Plumbing, Electrical and Exterior care.

I hope that this information helps.

"EMERGENCY": 1983 Chevy G30 8-cyl 5.7 Leisure Craft Rear Bathroom/Entrance
by: Rey L Agosto

I bought my mobile home summer 2016.

I'm a disable Navy veteran, non-combat, traumatic brain injury. After basic training, but before deployment tour of duty, vaccinations exacerbated my TBI thus 2-day coma......medical discharge. I collect S.S.I Semi-Retired. Please can somebody help me prepare my mobile home for full system activation. Frankly all I need is supervision via phone. Thank you all kindly for your time and consideration.

P.S: I will not go for long away excursions no time soon. I've returned from school and travel. I'm staying parked next to my mother's nursing home indefinitely. Thank you.

1985 Chevy G30 Leisure Craft Owners Manual

I am looking for an owners manual for a 1985 Chevy G30 Leisure Craft. If anyone knows where I can locate one I would appreciate the info! Thanks!

I am currently selling a 1990 Leisure-Craft and have the original manual. I would be willing to copy it for Phil for what it costs me to duplicate and send it.

Perhaps someone can guide me to info I need. The DMV wants the empty vehicle weight rather than the GVW. I need the info from an authorative source.
