How many Foretravel’s still exist?
There is probably no way of knowing, but how many of each series were built and still exist? It is remarkable and a credit to the build quality that there are still so many in daily use. They were built to last unlike so many of the RV products...

A clue (perhaps): The Forum Board Stats show 5671 total members, but, many current Foretravel owners don't even know about the Forum.

Checking the build number on a brand new Foretravel would give you an idea of how many (total) were built, but no...

In looking at FOT web site on new ones I see build # 7105 as one in production now.  I have a 2014, that was started in March of 2013, build # is 6583  so in the last 6 years they have built  522.

As far as I can figure, there was around 1700+ flat nose bus style coaches built. But how many still exist is a good question.
I realize this doesn't answer your question, or identify how many total FT's were built, and still around. I don't think...

That is still a lot of coaches for a small production factory, and amazing to think so many still run as well or better than some newer coaches, We began looking at the 34/36 ft Tiffin pushers but they hah so many complaints about wandering on...

For whatever it's worth our 1995 U320 was built in February 1995 and is unit number 4726. It's not the first "bus style" built but is one of the earlier ones.

Yup '95 was the last year of the 'U' series. Wonder if FT used separate Build #s for different models, or were just numbered sequentially as they came off the assembly line?

I don't know what you mean by the "'U' series." U320 models were still being built well into the 2000s. I believe the build numbers are just sequential from the very beginning. 
I believed...

I believed the 'U' series 'Unihome' were only built in the 36' from '93 to '95. Those were the years that had the torsilastic suspension, no air bags.
We have a 95 U300 40ft Unihome with air bags

Yup, the '93 through '95 36 footers (narrow) were either the 225 or the 240, both with torsilastic. Brett had our torsilastic...

Yup, I stand corrected: The 3116 six cylinder CAT was introduced in '93 and, I believe, ran until '95.
