Default Calling Overland Owners

Any Overland folk out there? We belong to a great Overland group, and are open to welcoming new members. We meet twice a year for four to seven days, and spend most of the time eating and laughing.

Default Ellen?

I am considering purchasing a 1989 37' Overland Diesel Coach and am unable to research the value of this coach in order to make an offer.

Do you have any access to a source of valuation for such a vehicle?

Thank you for your time.

Default wow we must be a select group !! or just strange

hi, I have just purchased a 1988 m36 overland. I have been trying to find out some history on these M/Hs without much luck. Looks like a mid 90s M/H and is very well equipped.
Nice to know I am not alone out here

Default Overland???

Hi Ellenanded, My hubby and I just recently bought an Overland. I'm beside myself to find this place. We have a 1989 Overland by Mallard on Oshkosh chassis, diesel pusher, 8.2 L GM engine. We need a manual, or manuals. Will pay for copies, will pay for them to be scanned and sent email. We'll pay pay pay. LOL. Would also like to hear about the camp group. Thanks, Joe and Iva

Default Not alone Andy

We just bought a 1989, less than 5,000 miles on it. Inside needs some tlc, was used as a home mostly. No manuals...need manuals...will pay for manuals. Copies of manuals. Overland went belly up twice. Finally was bought out by Frieghtliner, but can't help us with manuals, we have Oshkosh chassis. But Freightliner can supply parts.

Default 1988 overland has water damage

Greetings,
Newbie here, I am looking at a 1988 Oshkosh Overland and note that it has water damage in 3 spots, shower vent, little bit around the tv above the dash, and in front of the large window on the right side.
Is the RV metal framed or wood? I am trying to find out how bad the damage might be. Is the siding laminated to wood panels underneath?
It has the Detroit Diesel with low miles and I feel it is priced high at 10K, but it appears to be a quality unit and will preserved other than the water damage.
Thanks very much in advance,
Ron

Default 1990, 1989,1988 Mallard Overland

I have an Overland that says 1988 John Deere on the chassis, 1989 in the VIN number, and 1990 on the title. I have been trying to research it, but it has been a needle in a haystack. I know that its and Oshkosh chassis. It has a diesel engine in the front of the RV. It is a 40 ft. Or near that. I have a guy working on it who is not experienced with RV's but is doing a pretty good job figuring things out.
We do have all the original manuals on it. But, it is a mess of information about gas engines, and a lot of extra stuff that doesn't pertain to it. It doesn't say what kind of chassis it is.
it kind of hoge poged together. A melting pot of parts. I think it is a ford steering wheel, allison transmission, Cummins diesel, And I am not sure what else. Just a bag of worms.
I would like to speed up the process by helping him with whatever I can find out on the internet. So far, the alternator was not charging the batteries. He went in and found it was a delco alternator which he thinks is not the original alternator. He thinks it should be a bosch. And it may be a rebuild. Anyways, there were maybe 5 wires hooked up to the alt. Some were melted. He reconfigured the wires in hopes that that was the problem. There was one wire left over that we don't have a clue as to where it goes. There are a lot of wires that have been spliced and are cut and is a mess under the dash. The previous owners had a field day with them!
Some things don't work. Like the air horn. The turn signal switch. The emergency start.
The blower on the A/c heater in the dash is weak. The A/C only trickles out. I am wondering if that is normal. The previous owner said that he didn't use the dash a/c because it wouldn't blow cold because the diesel engine would make the air too hot. I know the A/C system needs to be updated. But, I don't know if I should bother with it if it blows warm. Maybe it is the fan?
I am curious as to why the diesel is in the front and not the rear like all of the other diesels that I have found on the internet.
We have come to the conclusion that this chassis was one that didn't have the bugs worked out.
The speedometer is not hooked up to the transmission and we can't find where it plugs in. The wire is just hanging down, not connected.
The odometer does not work.
The volt meter is not accurate. It is showing on the low side.
Besides all of the other stuff. The BRAKES! I have to push down so hard it makes my leg hurt to get the darn thing stopped! I know this can't be normal. The previous owner said it was like that for him as well. He said he took it to an RV place to have it inspected and they didn't find anything wrong! I beg to differ. But, I can't, nor can my guy figure out what might be the problem. We don't know what exact chassis we have.
Also, the steering has way too much play in it. When I was going down the road about 40mph, I was white knuckling it to stay straight. I noticed a yellow sway bar underneath attached to the steering. But, I don't know if that is supposed to have any impact on the play. I am kind of lost in this area. I need to be able to steer and put on the brakes to drive it.
If anyone has any clues to my Overland orphan, please, please contact me! Please!giulianogirls@yahoo.com
