Did you buy V. Bainbridge's trailer that was up for sale
last year in the Sudbury area? If so, you just cleared up some issue I had with the list.
V. Bainbridge's trailer is already listed in David's list, but with a number that starts with 330. Now if it's that same trailer, and you say the serial number starts with 332, that makes much more sense to me.
You see, so far in David's list, all 5500s that have a 332XXX number are "Deluxe" models. This means they have a shower, hot water heater, larger fridge, oven, double stripes outside, etc. The "Standard" models don't have these, and their serial numbers start with 330.
The only 5500 on David's list that didn't fit this pattern was V. Bainbridge's. By looking at the pictures when it was up for sale
, it clearly is a Deluxe model, but it was reported here as having 330
116 as serial.
So if you confirm your number starts with 332, it all makes sense now, Dave will eventually correct the list, and this confirms - so far - that 332's are all Deluxes and 330s are all Standards.
According to the rumors, there was supposedly about only 65 5500s made. Then Trillium
But as you can see, some 5500s have serial numbers above 100 (mine is 104), so either the numbers we not sequential or there was more that 60-something made. There are not enough 5500 numbers on that list to draw any conclusions.
