1971 Mercedes 206D ? Orion Motorhome Marlena Fairbourne 10-15-04  
Is there anyone out there who is familiar with these Mercedes Motorhomes from the early 70's? I have a 71 Orion that I'm rebuilding but having a heck of a time finding parts or info or seeing any old photos of these. Don't know anyone else within 20,000 miles of here that has one. Seems like I'm the only one I can find anywhere who owns one. Plus mine has a drivers side door which I have never seen on any other.
