Hey, Dodge-ee-o's, glad to chat. How 'bout this deal: Hedman Hedders are available for the 318-360 engines, AND the 413-400-440 Big Blocks. basically, this could easily result in horsepower boost of from 25-50 extra horsepower, AND more Torque AND Better Fuel Mileage. Keep up the posting, and keep the faith.

It was not a C, but I had a 22' A on a Dodge M400 chassis with a 360. The C's are far better - it was almost impossible and very expensive to get brake rotors for the class A.

You can count me in also.
'78 RobinHood on a '77 Dodge Chassis (MB400).
Like Pugmaster I have been doing a lot of restoration.
Have had squirrels completely chew the engine wiring to pieces twice so far.
Absolutely love the vehicle. Had 2 chevy coaches prior to this (Class A and Class C) but they don't hold a candle to the 440 nor the Dodge chassis.
Plan on keeping it until I can't drive anymore.

According to my child, it's not a motorhome, it's "The Tioga!"

Just purchased the first Dodge vehicle I've ever owned...now at age 48.

It's a 1974 Tioga with a Dodge 318. I have an obvious learning curve here. Would love to be part of a Dodge MH group!

How can headers fit the 440??
I barely get my fingers in to change the spark plugs on the drivers side and must either crawl under the cab on the passenger side or remove the pass. wheel to get to the plugs on that side. I owned a '73 dodge MH with a 360 several years ago and the headers that the prev. owner had installed fit so close I had to do some creative remodeling of the floorboard area and bottom of the doghouse to lessen the heat transfer to the passenger side.
Wanted to put headers on the 440,(huge MPG increase and less back preasure on the engine),until I got a good look at the clearances at the exhaust manifolds. Settled for changing the exhaust sys. form single to dual.

Welcome Denisondc,Ripsaw,BradyK,Groenlynx,Jcarew,Cdog and
Pugmaster,HiTech,RobinHoodRV,RhondaK,MsBondurant,1978_Dodge
Delta!!!

Thank each one of you for your response to this post. It
really was my intention to locate and communicate with
anyone in RV.NET that owns an older Dodge "B" or "M" chassis
RV, and hopefully to form a network for our exclusive benefit.
After all our RV's are of the variety called the "Fixer-Upper".
This allows some unique creative license to make our RV's truly
"our own", rather than settling for a floor plan and options.
It is also my intent to "scrapbook"' if you will, of our efforts.
I would like to see galleries of older RV's that owners have restored to their specifications, be them what they may. Each is unique, like
snowflakes- no two are alike. And every story needs to be told.
Because each story is unique too.

We are also among an elite group of RV'ers who can proudly say
three words:

"It's paid for."

I'll never knock new stuff, I love it as much as the next guy.
But like I stated earlier I would rather have a vehicle that
I can do everything with, when I want to, and Heaven forbid, if
the world goes nuts tomorrow, the ol' Kobayashi Maru will "set
sail for the Promised Land" (more Trekkie speak- NE1 wanna guess
the movie that came out of? It's in the first four and Kirk says the line.)and me and the Redhead will do "Road Worrier" hee hee.

So let's keep this up and going. It's an established fact that there
is strength and safety in numbers, as well as a wealth of good ideas,
and a heckuva lotta good fellowship. In the meantime I'm discovering
just how many wasp nests I can run into cleaning out the Koby, so if you hear a buncha colorful metaphors bein' exhaled in rapid transit,
I'm bein' chased an' stung!

So, later on, God bless, and we'll leave the light on for ya!

your inflamed ol' friend

Hey all, we have a 1978 Dodge Coachman 18 footer. I will have to post a picture at some point. We love it. Small enough to get into places but big enough for the family. It has a 360 in it and runs great. I have done a lot of work to it in upgrades, more of my toys then anything else. The unit was in real good shape when I got it, so it wasn't that bad. I like to tinker, so in that sense it is nice, and best of all its paid for.


Its smarter to be lucky then its lucky to be smart!

Hello and welcome to the nut factory TKAHike!

You're exactly right about the manuverability of your rig!
The Kobayashi Maru is a tat bit longer than yours but I can get it in some places that just boggle some folk's minds... like in my driveway!!!

Keep on posting and get a gallery up- I'd love to see how you fixed your rig! I might even get some ideas...
