Is this a Plus 2 Chassis?

PostPost by: arcangel » Mon Dec 05, 2022 10:42 pm

I'm doing a garage clean out and need to see anyone can identify this chassis. I bought it many years as a spare for my Plus 2. Can anyone confirm that it is indeed for a Plus 2. Sorry for the crappy photos. The chassis is in a dark alcove with minimal lighting.

Looks like it. What is the length of the center section?

The center section, tunnel area, measures 61-1/2". Looking at the hole locations on the legs, appears to match the Plus 2 frame drawing for the I finally located. Thank you all for the confirmation.
