Welcome from America!!

American motorhomes, or RVs are almost always made by putting a body on a standard RV chassis then filling it with all the components like refrigerator, stove, lights, electrical converters. If you were lucky, you got a lot of paperwork that explains the manufacture of all these items, if not you will need to assemble your own documentation over time. The important thing to understand is that most of the mechanical items are made by some other company, so you will want to search under those brand names to get the information for maintenance and replacement.

A really important question is who made your chassis. Spartan, Oshkosh, freight-liner, Chevrolet, Ford are some of the manufacturers. This will help you get replacement driveline and suspension items.

As far as body and interior, I've never heard of an Odessa. It doesn't really matter as the interior will be mostly custom made anyway. The exterior parts are probably no longer made either. This is something we deal with in the US too, often needing to improvise or make our own parts when the original company is either gone away or don't make parts for older models. Luckily, RVs are pretty easy to swap parts from other makes, so a little ingenuity makes up for lack of parts.

hmm... so port side was made "Curbside". But, is it right hand drive? I see the driver's door (a fairly rare class A RV feature) on the port side.

Welcome and hello from Canada! That's a nice RV and I especially like the fact that it has doors on both sides, which is very uncommon.

If you have a nasty rug rip it out and go for a hard wood floor quite easy to install and looks great and easy to care for. I think that model would be great with a rear bed floor plan . Is it just going to be you on trips or others too? I think you can make a great RV out of your buy good luck. Kim
