I'm currently looking for a 31' (or 33') late '70s or early 80's 'Bird ($$ considerations). I also want to be able to tow a car/trailer combination weighing apprx. 6000 lbs with it. My question is whether the NA (210hp) will be able to handle this comfortably (ie. no overheating or 25 mph hills), or should I be directing my search for a T (250hp)? Would the difference in weight from a 31' to a 33' make any difference? I would appreciate any feedback from owners who've had any experience in this area. Thanx in advance.... Steve

Saw your post. We have a 33'82 Wanderlodge for sale. It was my little brother's and he took excellent care of it. It is set up to pull. It is a turbo diesel with around 30K miles, the coach has only 67,000 original miles. Have pics and more info if you are interested. Rose Mary

We own an FC-33, 1980, that had been upgraded to a 250 turbo by the former owner, a friend has a 210 FC-33, you would not believe the performance difference. We tow a 10,000lb trailer, no problem. The coach will go 72mph towing or not, she isnt fast, just steady. If you buy a 210 and hate it, you will be faced with the choice of a tough sell or a very expensive upgrade. Happy hunting.
